Netherlands-based aerial services provider Zeusch Aviation has taken a step closer to earning its air operator certificate (AOC) by adding the first of four aircraft to its new continuing airworthiness management organization (CAMO) certificate. The Beechcraft King Air C90A will be joined under the CAMO by a B200 Super King Air, followed by another C90A and B200 within the next year.
Zeusch provides the aircraft for broadcast relay services, aerial surveillance, medevac and transplant flights, and aerial mapping. The CAMO program enables it to manage all elements of the airworthiness of its aircraft, including maintenance schedules and valid certificates. “By taking airworthiness management in-house and establishing our own CAMO certificate, we are no longer dependent on a third-party CAMO service for which we are not the sole customer,” said Zeusch managing director Herman van Kranenburg.
The company also hired Danny van Leperen to manage the CAMO, steps of which go toward the company earning its AOC. “We have the AOC in our sights and are focused on developing the necessary personnel, assets, and safety management systems to reach this goal,” van Kranenburg added.
