Aiming to provide effective after−sale support of Antonov aircraft, the enterprise began the programme of establishment of authorized maintenance centers in Latin America, Asia and Africa. The main task is provision of ANTONOV aircraft technical support in the regions through the single maintenance center.
ANTONOV Company worked out technical requirements to authorized maintenance and service centers of Antonov aircraft. A Company partner must have Certificates on performance of all the periodic maintenance checks (including maximum – up to 1800 flight hours) issued by Civil Aviation Departments and licenced staff. Availability of a hangar, mechanical facilities to repair the aircraft, laboratories to perform maximum checks of maintenance, ground and test equipment, spare parts warehouse as well as operation and maintenance publications is the main list of requirements to establish cooperation of ANTONOV Company with a new partner.
The company’s experience in the Antonov aircraft operation and availability of own center for the technical personnel training in accordance with requirements of Civil Aviation Department provide a potential partner with additional advantage in the tender.
