Amac Gains Additional EASA Subpart Approvals
Amac Aerospace received EASA Part 21 Subpart G Production Organization Approval in late August, a few months after it was awarded the EASA Part 21 Subpart J Design Organization Approval. These approvals allow the company more independence in building and certifying parts for aircraft systems and interior modifications to be approved under minor modification approval or supplemental type certificates. The Swiss company, based at the tri-national EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, is EASA Part 145 approved and has the status of an EASA continued airworthiness management organization (Camo). Amac’s main activities are the completion of airliners to custom executive configurations and maintenance of executive aircraft, as well as aircraft management. It is factory-approved for maintaining the BBJ and Airbus A320-based ACJ series, as well as large-cabin Gulfstreams and the Bombardier Global Express, including the XRS and Global 5000. Amac employs more than 200 specialists and will inaugurate an additional 90,500-sq-ft hangar capable of accommodating the Boeing 747 later this year. Amac Aerospace was founded in 2007 and started work the following year in its own 45,000-sq-ft hangar.
