New Certification Allows The Repair Station To Service Equipment For Civil Aircraft Registered In Europe
EASA has granted Part 145 certification to Northrop Grumman for its repair station in Rolling Meadows, IL. The company's repair station was established to meet regulatory requirements for customers operating aircraft under civil aviation rules. Opened in 2009, the station services Northrop Grumman's infrared countermeasures systems.
EASA Part 145 Repair Station Certification regulates the standards for qualifying as a repair station and the maintenance requirements for aircraft. "We understand the importance of keeping critical systems in top condition and doing so affordably," said Carl Smith, vice president of infrared countermeasures for Northrop Grumman's Land and Self Protection Systems division. "This EASA Part 145 certification will allow us to extend our award-winning service to customers who operate aircraft registered in Europe."
The repair station also holds Part 145 certification from the FAA, and has been awarded the FAA's Diamond Award for Excellence for two consecutive years. The station was also recognized by the National Air Transport Association with two consecutive Five Star Awards for its dedication to aviation maintenance technician training.
