Air China subsidiary gets airworthiness maintenance certificate


The Chengdu maintenance base of Air China Engineering and Technology Co. acquired an airworthiness certificate for 8C check of Airbus A340-300 aircraft on February 6, becoming the first maintenance unit in west China to gain such certification. The certificate entitles the Chengdu base to provide maintenance for the Airbus wide-body jetliner. It took four months before the Chengdu base could apply for qualification with the airworthiness department. Last September, the base started the Air China A340 aircraft 8C check project. During the four months, it prepared the report; trained technicians, ordered tools, equipment and parts; and maintained the hangar support facility. Following its application last December 22, the base passed the inspection to acquire the certificate. There are only two maintenance joint ventures in China capable of providing maintenance work for the A340 jet.
