IAI BEDEK gains new MRO certification
Israel Aerospace Industries' (IAI) maintenance organisation, BEDEK, has received the AS9110C standard certification for the management of maintenance and continuous airworthiness for civilian and military aircraft, the company announced on 9 January.
This standard is tailored to regulatory requirements, aviation law and global aviation regulations, with the understanding that the intended lifespan of aircraft is fifty years or more after production, to ensure the high level of maintenances needed for their safe and continuous operation.
BEDEK serves as repair station for aircraft maintenance.
Yossi Melamed, executive vice president and the aviation group's general manager, IAI, said: ‘IAI's Aviation Group is committed to the most stringent standards in all fields, including aircraft maintenance and MRO services for aircraft engines and aircraft accessories. Certification to the AS9110C standard further establishes the recognition of the global aviation industry for the group's operations and represents a major upgrade for our aviation maintenance units. I strongly believe this will open the door to new potential customers for the company.’
