The company recently secured EASA Part 145 for the aircraft type
Joramco, the Jordan-based engineering division of Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE), has secured EASA Part 145 approval for the Boeing 787 aircraft type. The announcement follows the company’s acquisition of a similar approval for this type from the Jordanian Civil Aviation Authority (JCARC) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in April 2018.
“We are very pleased to gain our EASA approval for the Boeing 787. This approval allows us to broaden our service offerings to a wider base of customers as we continue to build on Joramco’s success as a leading MRO facility offering a globally competitive suite of MRO services,” shared Jeff Wilkinson, chief executive officer of Joramco.

“The EASA approval for the Boeing 787 further recognizes Joramco’s extended capability set in maintaining new technology aircraft,” said Firoz Tarapore, chief executive officer of DAE.
“This achievement reflects DAE’s goal of developing a regionally-based world-class competitive MRO and services platform to complement its top-tier leasing platform.”
