Enstrom earns EASA repair station validation

May 16, 2024  By Helicopters Staff


Enstrom received repair station validation from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, allowing the U.S. based helicopter manufacturer to better support its European customers. This validation certifies that Enstrom repair station processes are in full compliance with the latest European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) requirements.

Enstrom’s repair station (EASA.145.8090) operates within its Menominee, Michigan, factory. It will now provide European Union customers with helicopter maintenance, damage repairs, upgrades, and component overhauls.

This EASA announcement comes on the heels of February’s FAA Repair Station validation. Prior to that, Enstrom had refurbished its facility with new equipment, new tooling, new storage, and other quality-of-life improvements. In the months since then, Enstrom’s repair station has issued return-to-service releases for 61 components and assemblies.

“We’re proud of the hard work that went into receiving this validation, and it will be a welcome relief to our customers in the European Union,” said Enstrom Chief Commercial Officer Dennis Martin. “We couldn’t be more excited. With this validation, our Repair Station can now provide overhauled components and other services to our European customers in addition to parts.”
