The December issue of MRO Management is now online


In the winter edition of MRO Management, we take an early look at Lufthansa Technik Sofia’s new hangar. Eastern Europe’s largest MRO facility has enjoyed a year of substantial growth, and the new expansion will consist of three new bays, bringing the total to an impressive eight.

In the Gulf, Etihad Airways Engineering has been expanding its technical capabilities at its Abu Dhabi facility, following its 2014 acquisition of
Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies. The MRO is supporting the UAE’s Emiratisation initiative with its Etihad Airways Technical Training scheme, and boasts the first Flammability Test Laboratory in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Ontic Engineering has upgraded its facilities in the US and UK, following the purchase of a portfolio of legacy avionics from GE Aviation. The procurement of sunset products from other OEMs has proven to be good business for the company, which now holds intellectual property rights on over 4,500 products.
