GKN Aerospace CAAC Certification Renewed

18 February 2008

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) has announced the extension of GKN Aerospace's Maintenance Organisation Certificate (MOC) by a further two years until December 31st 2009.

This MOC covers the repair and overhaul of a wide range of commercial aircraft engine fan blades and fan components for both Airbus and Boeing aircraft. Renewal of the MOC means the GKN Aerospace maintenance operation complies fully with China Civil Aviation Regulation (CAAR) part 145.

Steve Pearl VP, General Manager Aviation Repair, comments: ""We have been maintaining aero-engine fan components for China's operators for over 20 years and this MOC extension recognises the continuing quality of our support activity. Air traffic is predicted to grow considerably in the next 20 years, with the Asia Pacific being at the heart of that growth and China expected to experience the greatest increase in activity. We intend that our global engine fan component aftermarket operation will increase and broaden to support these operators as they work to meet this increasing passenger demand.""
