China Eastern earns maintenance certificate


On July 24, the East China Regional Administration of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) awarded China Eastern Airlines its certificate for passing the CCAR Part 147, the regulation on civil aircraft maintenance training organizations. The awarding of the certification makes China Eastern one of the leading training organizations in China. CCAR Part 147 is a rule issued by the CAAC to regulate management and supervision of civil aircraft maintenance personnel training organizations, and to cultivate qualified aircraft personnel. Training organizations are required to pass the CCAR Part 147 The Maintenance Training Center of China Eastern Airlines established its CCAR Part 147 certification preparation group last year in its bid to boost its application. Six teachers from the airline’s maintenance bases in Xi’an and Kunming, Shanxi Maintenance Department and Lanzhou Training Center took part in the preparation work. The group held meetings and studied the CCAR 147 regulations and circulars. The group studied the training organization manual and program, teaching syllabus, aircraft model practice items list, personnel, teaching material, question bank, and training facility. The group also established a detailed preparation plan and designated persons responsible for the implementation. With the new certification, the airline’s Maintenance Training Center can now handle aircraft models Airbus A300-600, A320 family, A340-300 and A340-600, MD11 and MD90. Feng Liang, manager of the maintenance training of China Eastern Airlines, said acquiring the CCAR-147 certificate not only solved the problem of insufficient backup resources for China Eastern Airlines mechanic personnel to a certain degree; it also promoted an increase in the airline’s maintenance personnel’s professional level. In addition, it will provide a training platform to expand the reserve of China’s civil aviation maintenance talents. Currently, the training center is gradually standardizing development work of other training projects. According to the requirements of CCAR 147, the training center will have to perfect modules such as aircraft maintenance basic training, aircraft parts maintenance basic training, basic skills training and parts repair training to cover all the requirements..
