AMP Earns Saudi Repair Certification

Aviation Maintenance Professionals (AMP) has received certification from the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) to provide maintenance, repair, and upgrades to Saudi-registered Gulfstream, Bombardier/Learjet, Hawker, and Dassault jets. Brian Allen, president of the Arlington, Texas-based MRO provider, said a customer recommended his company seek the certification.

“Initially we were approached by an operator in-country to handle a few maintenance items while they completed a significant avionics upgrade,” Allen explained. “The client was pleased with our performance and suggested we apply for GACA approval in order to both oversee the remaining upgrades across their fleet and their ongoing maintenance requirements.”

It’s the second foreign repair certification AMP has secured, with the first in 2013 from the Mexican Agencia Federal de Aviación Civil. “We approach the expansion of our size, product offerings, and market reach steadily and cautiously to ensure we maintain the high levels of service,” added AMP COO and accountable manager Jim Balzer. “With hangar space and labor availability shortages worldwide, this is an excellent time to expand our reach.”
