J&C Aero has received its first EASA Part 145 approval certifying J&C Aero to conduct in-house component maintenance and repairs, covering air conditioning and pressurisation, doors and hatches, electrical power and lights, equipment, windows, and structural components. The company will provide in-house component MRO services at its newly launched Component Repair Shop in Vilnius, Lithuania.
“We’ve started purely as a design company, focusing on the development of various cabin interior elements. Step by step we have been expanding our capabilities by adding production and other services. By aiming to become a single point for all aircraft cabin-related needs, adding MRO capabilities is logical next step for us,” explained Laurynas Skukauskas, CEO at J&C Aero. “We are grateful to the Transport Competence Agency for their guidance throughout the certification process. And, of course, big praise to our component repair team that made it all possible.”
J&C Aero currently, operates a 1,500 square meter facility that includes cabin interior design, production and print shops, as well as testing laboratories, a warehouse, and the recently launched component repair shop. By the end of 1Q 2022, J&C Aero plans to more than double its main facilities near Vilnius International Airport (VNO) by increasing total space to 3,500 square meters.
