Mena Aerospace unit wins Saudi certification
Manama, January 21, 2012
Bahrain-based Mena Aerospace Enterprises said its avionics subsidiary Mena Avionics has obtained its certificate of approval from the Saudi Arabia's general authority of civil aviation.
A joint venture between Mena Aerospace Enterprises and Scandinavian Avionics A/S based in Billund, Denmark, is an aircraft repair station operating at the Bahrain International Airport.
Mena Avionics has already secured equivalent approvals from Bahrain Civil Aviation Affairs (BCAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
Such regulatory approvals are issued based on successfully passing audits and inspections carried out by the various regulators' inspectors, said a statement from Mena Aerospace.
Inspections and audits focused on training, personnel, equipment, tools, quality and overall standards to which the organization is operated.
Mena Avionics specializes in selling, installing, maintaining, repairing and troubleshooting the electrical devices and electronic instruments and systems on board aircraft.
The company supports local and international airlines, maintenance and repair organizations and private aircraft operators throughout the Middle East.
Group CEO Ralph Eisenschmid said these recent approvals were the direct result of a lot of hard work by the entire team.
'They certainly deserve commendation for establishing an internationally recognized aeronautical organization with very unique capabilities. This bolsters our overall corporate strategy to continue our aggressive expansion into Saudi Arabia and other countries in the GCC,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
