Bangor, Maine–based C&L Aviation Services has signed an Aircraft Maintenance Service Agreement with Embraer Netherlands (ENL), who is responsible for the asset management of the Embraer commercial aircraft portfolio, to perform heavy maintenance, interior refurbishment, paint, and other services on the pre-flown ERJ 135/145 aircraft which they refurbish and remarket to their operator customers.
C&L expanded into the ERJ 135/145 market two years ago and now offers a full range of services from maintenance and inspections, to aircraft painting and interior refurbishment, to teardowns and aircraft records management. C&L also provides parts support, power-by-the-hour programs, component repair services and aircraft transactions for the ERJ 135 and ERJ 145 aircraft.
“The results of the first aircraft have proven to us that C&L can meet the high workmanship standards that Embraer requires in delivering a quality pre flown aircraft to our customers,” said Roberto Marinelli Parente, asset technical director at Embraer – São José dos Campos. “We look forward to our continued relationship.”
C&L has completed maintenance on the first ERJ 145 from ENL and looks forward to providing these services for subsequent aircraft.
“We are delighted to have been chosen by Embraer to be an important contributor in preparing their ERJ 135 and ERJ 145 aircraft to be remarketed,” said Calvin Tuitt, senior VP of Business Development MRO. “Our goal is to work with ENL to build a good and lasting business relationship as our experienced team provides quality workmanship, complete interior refurbishment and aircraft exterior painting to them as part of our One Stop Solution for regional aircraft.”
