World Aero achieves FAA Repair Station Certification

Wheels and brakes experts World Aero have obtained FAA Certification as a Part 145 Repair Station for their UK based facility, close to London Gatwick Airport, which specialises in MRO services for aircraft wheels and brakes.

The FAA Certification allows World Aero to carry out maintenance on aircraft wheel and brake components registered in the United States in accordance with 14 CFR Part 145, and means that the repair station is held to the FAA’s rigorously high standards, undergoing regular reviews and tests.

Phil Randell, World Aero’s Managing Director, comments: “Having undergone extensive preparation prior to obtaining Certification, including FAA inspections, technical manual writing and employee training, we are delighted to have World Aero’s wheel and brake maintenance capabilities and the expertise of our highly skilled technicians recognised.”
