Textron Aviation’s mobile service unit (MSU) team based in Calgary, Canada, has received authorization for maintenance on EASA-registered aircraft, the Wichita-based airframer announced yesterday. It’s part of an effort by the OEM to strengthen its global customer support network with the extension of regulatory approvals to new regions.
“As travelers return to the skies, we’re enhancing our service offerings, ensuring our customers can access the safe, dependable support they value from Textron Aviation, wherever their journey takes them,” said senior v-p of customer support Brian Rohloff. “The extension of EASA approvals to our Canadian MSU team will be of value to owners whose aircraft are registered under that authority, particularly as the summer season brings business and leisure fliers alike to the region.”
Textron has more than 75 MSUs in its global fleet for AOG and unscheduled and scheduled maintenance events. The trucks are equipped for limited inspections, engine, tire, and brake service at a customer’s location.
