Hawker Beechcraft Limited in UK designated as Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization
October 20, 2011:
Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Support (GCS) today announced its factory-owned service center in Chester, U.K., Hawker Beechcraft Limited, has been authorized as an EASA Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO) under Part M Subpart G with Subpart I privileges. This new organizational structure introduces the ability to issue and extend an Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC) that replaces the annual Certificate of Airworthiness (C of A) requirement. While all EASA aircraft over 5,700 kilograms (12,500 pounds) are mandated to contract with an approved CAMO, HBS' authorization will provide a source for Hawker and Beechcraft owners and operators to meet EASA airworthiness requirements directly from a factory-owned service center.
"Continuing Airworthiness Management simplifies the maintenance and airworthiness certification process for aircraft owners," said Christi Tannahill, Hawker Beechcraft vice president, Global Customer Support. "Anytime we can help our customers minimize aircraft downtime and increase availability, we can help ease their operational challenges."
Utilization of the Chester HBS CAMO program provides customers with a comprehensive aircraft maintenance program including forecasting, planning and scheduling maintenance to minimize aircraft downtime, and management of technical records and logbooks. Benefits also include safe storage, management of all Airworthiness Directives and other mandatory requirements, service life-limited components tracking and control, import and export of the aircraft and utilization of CAMP systems on behalf of the owner.
The scope of Chester's CAMO authorization includes the Beechcraft King Air 200/300/350, Hawker 750/800/800XP/850XP/900XP, Hawker 1000, Hawker 400/400A/400XP and Hawker 4000.
