Hawker Pacific gets one-off production certificate from CASA

written by australianaviation.com.au | September 22, 2014

Australia’s air safety regulator has given Hawker Pacific approval to manufacture spare parts for older aircraft.

Hawker Pacific said the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) had given the aircraft sales and product support company a one-off production certificate. The accreditation allowed the manufacture and release of aircraft parts accompanied by a CASA Form 1 release certification.

“The production certificate process can be used for manufacturing spare parts for multiple aircraft types that are obsolete, or where the spares have long lead times or are uneconomic to purchase through traditional means,” Hawker Pacific said in a statement.

“The production certificate provides a higher level of compliance while minimising effort and risk to the aircraft operator.”

Hawker Pacific chief operating officer for the Pacific region Doug Park said the certificate would help the company lower engineering costs for its customers and reduce the length of time an aircraft spent undergoing maintenance.
