BAA Training has revealed it has established an MRO in Spain called Avia Repair Co based at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport.
After a certification process, it will start providing maintenance, repair and overhaul services to BAA Training itself at the beginning and other corporate clients in the future.
This type of service will be third in the mix of services BAA Training already provides in Spain.
It has also recently opened a simulator Training Centre in Barcelona that is fully functional today.
Evgenij Grachiov, chief operating officer at BAA Training, says: “BAA Training has realized the necessity of creating such an organization for a while now.
“Having a dedicated local MRO that entirely concentrates on quality maintenance activities ensures the safety and airworthiness of the academy’s fleet in its Spanish bases.
“Once Avia Repair Co gains momentum, it will also offer its MRO services for external customers.“
Avia Repair Co has started looking for quilified engineers and mechanics to join the company and plans to recruit at least 10 employees in 2021 alone.
Goncalo Antonio Nunes Penedo, appointed director at Avia Repair Co, comments: “Avia Repair Co will apply the know-how of European quality standards in MRO and aim to ensure adequate turnaround time.
“For making it possible, the company will recruit profoundly detail-oriented maintenance experts with related experience to work in its fully-equipped hangar located at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport.“
