Lithuanian MRO provider FL Technics is expanding its technical training programme to cover maintenance type ratings for widebody aircraft.
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has extended its Part 147 training organisation approval for the Vilnius-based company to twin-aisle types.
The move comes after FL Technics took over the UK line maintenance provider Storm Aviation and joined Boeing's GoldCare MRO programme last year.
Storm supports a range of aircraft including widebodies, such as the Airbus A330, A340, A380, Boeing 747, 767 and 777, while FL Technics has concentrated on base and heavy maintenance for narrowbody and regional aircraft.
The latter currently supports the A320-family, 737s, 757s, Bombardier CRJ100 and 200s and ATR 42 and 72 turboprops.
However, FL Technics said it will also provide base maintenance for widebody aircraft in future.
It joined GoldCare in November, which covers the 787 and 737-600/700/800/900.
