RUAG gains approval for helicopters, propeller aircraft in Russia

RUAG Aviation is now also approved for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of civil helicopters and propeller aircraft registered in Russia.

“This certification allows us to offer our Russia based customers full MRO and engineering support across their aircraft portfolios,” states Markus Mayer, Regional Sales Director Europe, RUAG Aviation.

“At the same time, it also confirms to our current business jets customers that they can continue to rely on prompt aircraft availability and optimized downtimes for their helicopter and propeller aircraft as well. We are keen to extend this trust.”

Dedicated facilities for the newly included aircraft platforms are maintained at the RUAG Aviation sites at Sion, Lugano-Agno and Locarno, Switzerland.

RUAG holds Authorized Service Center status from the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for all of the newly approved types.

In addition to aircraft MRO, customers are able to take advantage of services that include component MRO, avionics and cockpit upgrades and cabin refurbishment, as well as airframe services for helicopters.
