PROSPECT, KY – July 23, 2014 – Avionics repair and overhaul services provider Artemis Electronics recently received certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) as a Part-145 Repair Station. EASA, which regulates civil aviation safety in a manner similar to the United States’ FAA, has entered into bilateral agreements by which EASA and the FAA mutually recognize standards imposed by each regulatory authority. This certification essentially broadens the territory of which Artemis Electronics’ FAA part-145 repair station status applies. Artemis received the part-145 repair station status in 2005.
The EASA Part-145 certification will allow Artemis to provide support and Form 8130-3 Dual Release (EASA/FAA) on all repair services completed for parts contained within Artemis’s repair station capabilities. This will help to grow Artemis’s business, as many existing customers require the EASA certification in order to do business with the entities’ European operations.
CEO and founder Dean Dickinson noted: “One guiding principle of Artemis Electronics is that the company is committed to providing repair solutions in accordance with the highest quality and safety standards. By achieving certification as an EASA part-145 repair station, Artemis has once again demonstrated its pledge to conduct its work in accordance with the highest safety standards.” Dickinson added that “this EASA certification will allow Artemis to provide repair support within our capabilities for European registered aircraft. We expect that this certification will lead to new business opportunities as our presence in the European market continues to grow.”
