S7 Technics to maintain Embraer E170s at its Irkutsk line station
Aviation Authority (BCAA) to provide line maintenance services for the Embraer E170 aircraft type
Previously, the only facility able to maintain Embraer E170s in Siberia and the Russian Far East was the S7 Technics base at Novosibirk’s Tolmachevo airport where specialists have been performing periodic maintenance checks on the aircraft type for some two years.
S7 Technics’ Irkutsk line station won its authorisation to perform line maintenance works on the E170 aircraft in August and the organisation’s specialists plan to start maintaining the type within the fleet of S7 Airlines – the only Russian operator of the E170 – in September.
“Approval for the provision of maintenance works on the Embraer E170 at our acting line station at Irkutsk airport now allows S7 Airlines to schedule flights of these regional aircraft from Irkutsk to non-base airports,” comments Sergey Kravchenko, S7 Technics’ regional sales director.
In preparation for the launch of its new E170 capabilities, all the necessary equipment and tools, including spare parts and consumables, have been purchased, whilst the station’s specialists have been trained up to work on the new type of aircraft at certified training centres in Russia and Poland. They also now have a 24/7 access to Embraer’s technical documentation.
S7 Technics launched its Irkutsk airport line station in 2006. In addition to the E170, its specialists are approved for maintenance works on Boeing 737 CL/NGs, Boeing 767s and the Airbus A320 ceo/neo family of aircraft.
Apart from Irkutsk, S7 Technics provides on-going line maintenance at five other Russian airports: Domodedovo (DME), Sheremetyevo (SVO), Tolmachevo (OVB), Vladivostok (VVO) and at Yakutsk (YKS).
