Icelandair once again returned to McLarens Aviation and our highly experienced EASA Part M approved CAMO team, with an RFP to project manage the import and Airworthiness Review of their Boeing 767-319ER, Registration TF-ISP, previously operating with Air New Zealand.
After promptly agreeing to our proposal, John Tomlinson (Surveyor / Project Manager), deployed to Xiamen in China, to perform the initial aircraft and technical records review, before flying with the aircraft to Icelandair’s maintenance base in Keflavik. After a number of days ensuring that full regulatory and maintenance compliance was satisfied and with just a few hours before the aircraft was scheduled into commercial and operational service, John formally issued the recommendation for the Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC), to the Icelandic CAA, which was duly authorised along with the issue of the Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA), much to Unnar Sumarliðason (Director Engineering ITS), relief and satisfaction.
McLarens Aviation have enjoyed an excellent business relationship with Icelandair for over six years, watching the airline and indeed Icelandic tourism expand significantly over the years. As Icelandair prepare to add a portfolio of Boeing 737 MAX into their fleet, we look forward to providing ITS with our specialist technical and EASA CAMO services, as required going forward.
