Jat To Support Latest Boeing, Airbus Types

: Jun 5, 2019 - : 3:25 am

Jat Tehnika’s aircraft maintenance center in Belgrade, Serbia, is planning to train its staff to maintain Boeing 737 MAXs, the Airbus A320neo family and Sukhoi SSJ-100 Superjets, according to Radoslav Ilić, head of maintenance marketing and sales.

Ilić believes his MRO is in a strong position to support the new aircraft. MRO Network quoted him saying, “(Jat) is the only fully equipped technical center in southeast Europe with professionally trained and experienced staff.”

Ilić notes Jat’s largest hangar can accommodate two 747-400s and a state-of-the-art engine test cell handles thrusts up to 75,000 lbs. The MRO holds both EASA and FAA Part 145 certificates. Based in Serbia, where per capita GDP is about $6,000 versus almost $40,000 for the EU as a whole, the MRO offers highly competitive labor rates. And the World Bank rates Serbia 48th, just ahead of Israel, out of 190 countries in ease of doing business.

With EASA Part 21 certification, Jat can provide engineering drawings of interiors, minor modifications and revisions of maintenance for aircraft, engines, systems and components. It also can issue “documents such as job cards, standard procedures, engineering orders for all line and base maintenance activities and monitoring of airworthiness,” Ilić says.

Jat employs 700 engineers and mechanics and has supported customers from Europe, the US, Russia and The Middle East.
