Vector Aerospace France receives renewal of Approved Maintenance Organization certificate from Myanmar

Gonesse, France - Vector Aerospace, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, has received renewal of its Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certificate approval from the Republic of the Union of Myanmar’s Department of Civil Aviation. This renewal relates to Vector Aerospace France (VAF), located in Gonesse, Paris.

Since 2011, Vector Aerospace has gained the trust and respect of the local aviation industry in Myanmar through its continuous dedication to providing world-class services to regional airlines in the country. Thanks to Vector’s established reputation with various aircraft original equipment manufacturers, combined with its meaningful involvement with operators across the country, Vector has proven to be an instrumental partner in the development of the commercial aviation sector in Myanmar over the past six years.

“Vector has been laser-focused on delivering excellence in technical support and superior customer service, so we are extremely proud to once again be recognized as a creditable aircraft maintenance service provider by the government of Myanmar,” said Jean-Jacques Reboul, Vice President of Fleet Sales for Vector. “With the renewal of our AMO certificate, we look forward to expanding our support in Myanmar and continuing to build on our already strong partnerships with local operators and industry stakeholders alike.”

Under this renewed certificate, Vector Aerospace France carries a Part 145 B1 engine class rating for the Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) PW100 turboprop engine family, including approvals for component maintenance, penetrant inspection and magnetic particle inspection for the type. This renewal is bolstered by VAF’s designation as a P&WC Designated Overhaul Facility (DOF) for the PW100. Additionally, through its convenient, customer-focused engine lease program, Vector’s Gonesse facility is able to keep aircraft operators in revenue-generating flight during scheduled and unscheduled engine maintenance and repair.
