Guangzhou Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (GAMECO) has obtained European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval to supply self-manufactured parts to EASA-registered aircraft.

The Chinese MRO says that the approval now means that its maintenance costs will be reduced, while also increasing its revenue-generating channels.

GAMECO says the process of obtaining the EASA production organisation approval took about two years, having kicked off efforts in August 2017.

“After the issuance of the approval for the first time, there will be a two-year continuous monitoring period during which GAMECO will receive regular audits by the audit team,” the company adds.
