Hawker Beechcraft in UK designated CAMO


Chester facility now authorised as EASA Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation

Beechcraft Global Customer Support announced its factory-owned service centre
in Chester,
Hawker Beechcraft Limited, has been authorised as an EASA Continuing
Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) under Part M Subpart G with
Subpart I privileges. This new organisational structure introduces the ability
to issue and extend an Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC) that replaces the
annual Certificate of Airworthiness (C of A) requirement. While all EASA
aircraft over 5,700 kilograms (12,500 pounds) are mandated to contract with an
approved CAMO, HBS’ authorization will provide a source for Hawker and
Beechcraft owners and operators to meet EASA airworthiness requirements
directly from a factory-owned service centre.  

Airworthiness Management simplifies the maintenance and airworthiness
certification process for aircraft owners,” said Christi Tannahill, Hawker
Beechcraft vice president, Global Customer Support. “Anytime we can help our
customers minimise aircraft downtime and increase availability, we can help
ease their operational challenges.”

The scope
of Chester’s
CAMO authorisation includes the Beechcraft King Air 200/300/350, Hawker
750/800/800XP/850XP/900XP, Hawker 1000, Hawker 400/400A/400XP and Hawker 4000.
