Liebherr’s Shanghai-based repair station for aerospace products, Liebherr-Aerospace China, has recently obtained its EASA Part-145 approval. The accreditation enables the station to maintain systems, parts and components in the class “Components other than complete engines or APUs”, and marks an important milestone for Liebherr-Aerospace in China.
The station offers up to 30 work benches, about 150 m² (1,600 sq ft) storage area for piece parts and line replaceable units as well as areas with state-of-the-art equipment for planning, receiving, cleaning, rework, testing, inspection and shipping. It is located on the site of Liebherr Machinery Service (Shanghai) Co. Ltd. It was set up to offer to airlines based in mainland China repair facilities, and thus to improve component support and repair turn-around times.
