SuperJet training center goes operational

SuperJet International, the regional jet marketing, customization and support Company for the Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional aircraft, has received from ENAC (Italian Aeronautical Civil Authority) the certification ‘EASA PART 147’, Approval No. IT.147.0010, according to the Regulation (EC).

With the EASA PART 147, and the FTO (Flight Training Organization) certification received last year for pilot training, SuperJet International’s Tessera Training Center is now completely operational.

The certification authorizes SuperJet International to organize technical training courses (as an approved maintenance training organization) and hold training courses, specifically designed for aeronautical engineers who possess a License of Aeronautical Maintenance (AML) and are responsible for the maintenance and release to service of the aircraft, in line with Regulation (EC) Part 66.

The approval received permits SuperJet International to request the same recognition from the Russian Aviation Authority (Rosaviatsiya), with the intent to obtain the Russian certification for the training center and to provide training courses for the first SuperJet International customers, anticipated to begin in October 2009.
