TAP Maintenance & Engineering Brazil plans to develop Boeing 777 landing gear repair capability after it was approved by the airframer to complete a service bulletin on the equipment.

The initial certificate covers the inspection, repair and overhaul of the axles for the widebody's landing gear, which Boeing required from 777 operators in a service bulletin last year.

"The next step is to expand the range of services provided under this certification," said Nestor Koch, president and chief executive of TAP M&E Brazil.

He added that further capabilities would be developed "very quickly".
