BAA Training is expanding in Europe and has established an MRO in Spain called Avia Repair Co based at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport.
After a certification process, the MRO company will start providing its services, initially to BAA Training and to corporate clients in the future.
BAA Training carries out flight training in its two bases – at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport and Castellón Airport – under the scope of the Ab Initio School. The company also has recently opened a simulator Training Centre in Barcelona.
“Having a dedicated local MRO that entirely concentrates on quality maintenance activities ensures the safety and airworthiness of the academy’s fleet in its Spanish bases,” said Evgenij Grachiov, Chief Operating Officer at BAA Training. “Once Avia Repair Co gains momentum, it will also offer its MRO services for external customers.“
Avia Repair plans to recruit at least 10 maintenance technicians in 2021. “Avia Repair Co will apply the know-how of European quality standards in MRO and aim to ensure adequate turnaround time. For making it possible, the company will recruit profoundly detail-oriented maintenance experts with related experience to work in its fully-equipped hangar located at Lleida-Alguaire International Airport,“ said Goncalo Antonio Nunes Penedo, Director at Avia Repair Co.
