EASA Grants 145 Approval to Aerospace Welding Minneapolis
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has granted Part 145 approval to Aerospace Welding Minneapolis, based in Eagan, Minn. The approval allows Aerospace Welding to export overhauled and repaired parts such as exhaust systems and engine mounts to customers located in any country that is a member of EASA. According to Aerospace Welding, “The certificate has been issued under the terms of the current bilateral aviation safety agreement and the associated maintenance implementation procedures.” Aerospace Welding president Tom Heid added, “EASA certification is further proof of the high quality of all of our work and the responsiveness we show every customer. This latest step in globalization will help us further serve the aviation industry.” Aerospace Welding can also issue export certificates of airworthiness for parts that it manufactures under FAA parts manufacturer approval (PMA) regulations because the company employs an FAA-designated manufacturing inspection representative.
