Aviation Business - - AVB’S 2019 AVIATION MARKET OUTLOOK -

Lieb­herr-Aero­space has en­tered into an agree­ment with Nor­dam, to de­velop and cer­tify anti-ice valves. The com­po­nents will then be utilised on NOR­DAM-de­vel­oped en­gine buildup sys­tem for A320­neo equipped with the Pratt & Whit­ney PW1100G en­gine. De­signed to pre­vent the for­ma­tion of ice on the en­gine’s cowl, the valves will be man­u­fac­tured at Lieb­herr-Aero­space’s cen­tre of com­pe­tence for air man­age­ment sys­tems. The valves will then be pack­aged into ship-sets of two pneu­matic valves per na­celle.

SriLankan En­gi­neer­ing has se­cured ap­proval from the Euro­pean Avi­a­tion Safety Agency (EASA) to con­duct base main­te­nance op­er­a­tions on Air­bus A330 air­craft as per EASA Part-145 reg­u­la­tions. With the re­cent cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, SriLankan En­gi­neer­ing is able to com­plete base main­te­nance op­er­a­tions on the A320, A321 and A330 fam­i­lies at Colombo’s Ban­daranaike In­ter­na­tional Air­port (BIA). The com­pany is also ap­proved for EASA Part-145 Base Main­te­nance op­er­a­tions for Air­bus A320 air­craft.

Mid­dle East Air­lines has inked a longterm main­te­nance agree­ment with Rolls-Royce for Trent 7000 en­gines. It has been re­ported that the en­gines will power the car­rier’s po­ten­tial or­der of Air­bus A330­neo air­craft. Ac­cord­ing to Rolls-Royce, the agree­ment will cover the en­gines’ op­er­at­ing pe­riod with MEA and also in­cludes the pro­vi­sion of spare parts and en­gines. Ad­di­tion­ally, Rolls-Royce shared that MEA is set to pur­chase four A330-900s and place op­tions for an­other two of the long-haul twin­jet.
