Internal Pilatus PC-12 Type Course

Primo December, we have completed a Pilatus PC-12 type course for technicians at our facilities at Vamdrup. We have obtained an EASA approval to conduct this internal course for five of our own technicians, and before long, the technicians will have to pass a test to formally obtain the approval (B1 + B2).

The course and test is important to both us and our customers as it enables us to handle an even larger workload related to the popular single engine turboprop aircraft - the Swiss produced Pilatus PC-12.

See aircraft presentation at manufacturers website

We wish everyone blue skies and many happy landings!

New Case: Wing Damage Repair 

A Cessna 172SP had been unlucky and sustained some injuries on its wing. We went to Bodø to dismantle the wing, transported it back to Eggemoen, repaired it and transported it back to Bodø, where it was re-fitted. At the same time, we carried out an annual inspection of the aircraft. 
See photo-case - incl. a step-by-step explanation of the tasks

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year - from all of us to all of you!
