RUAG EARNS RUSSIAN APPROVAL FOR HELICOPTERS AND PROPELLER AIRCRAFT

RUAG Aviation is now also approved for the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of civil helicopters and propeller aircraft registered in Russia. This is an extension to the existing approvals RUAG holds for business jets issued by the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) in 2016 and includes helicopters and propeller aircraft within the standard RUAG type ratings portfolio. The extension specifies RUAG MRO facilities in Switzerland.

“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. More information on the company’s full type ratings portfolio are available on the RUAG Aviation microsites for helicopterspropeller aircraft and business jets. 

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.
