Schweizer, the Fort Worth, Texas, company that manufactures Schweizer S300, S300CBi, and S333 helicopters, said it received an FAA Part 145 repair station certification, allowing it to repair and overhaul its aircraft and components under an FAA-approved quality system.
“We are extremely grateful to our partners at the FAA who helped us earn this additional level of quality assurance and capability as we continue to build back the trusted Schweizer brand,” said David Horton, president and CEO of Schweizer. “We are pleased to provide this level of certification to our customers and are now in the process of applying for similar EASA approval to further expand our support for Schweizer owners and operators.”
The new repair station certificate allows Schweizer to raise its level of services to include performing transmission overhauls and other labor-intensive repairs in its own factory. The change will help to reduce delays and expenses often associated with relying on third parties to perform the work, the company said.
