A start-up Russian carrier Azimuth Airlines based at Rostov’s newly built Platov Airport trusts S7 Technics Holding with the first C-check on its SSJ 100 aircraft.

In early April S7 Technics Holding’s maintenance base at Domodedovo Airport redelivered a Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) aircraft to its operator Azimuth Airlines after its first heavy maintenance check. The check included a large number of labor-intensive Service Bulletins issued by the aircraft’s producer Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC).

“With each check completed on SSJ 100, S7 Technics’ technical staff build up more and more experience, while performing very complicated modifications on this type,” Nikita Belykh, S7 Technics’ sales director comments. “We consistently expand our capabilities in airframe and component maintenance for SSJ100, and we keep building up the volumes and complexity of our works, confirming the leading role of S7 Technics Holding among SSJ 100 maintenance providers.”

S7 Technics Holding has been active on the MRO market for SCAC-produced aircraft since February 2016. The current project, the C-check on Azimuth Airlines’ SSJ 100 was the ninth heavy maintenance check on the type for the provider.

Within the past two years many SSJ 100 operators, including Gazprom Avia, IrAero Airlines, Yamal Air Transport Company, Russia’s EMERCOM, resorted to S7 Technics’ maintenance stations in Domodedovo and Mineralnye Vody for their aircraft maintenance.

Azimuth Airlines is based at Rostov’s Platov Airport and serves the south of Russia. The airline’s fleet consists of long-range modification of Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, the SSJ 100-95LR. The aircraft are delivered under contract with State Transport Leasing Company.

S7 Technics Holding’s facilities are certified by EASA, Bermuda DCA, the Russian Aviation Authority, and a number of other national authorities to carry out maintenance for different types of Boeing, Airbus, Embraer and Sukhoi Civil Aircraft airliners.

The company comprises two MRO subsidiaries: S7 ENGINEERING and Sibir Technics, which service aircraft at Moscow (DME), Novosibirsk (OVB) and MineralnyyeVody (MRV), as well as through several line outstations across Russia. S7 Technics Holding’s production facilities are certified under EASA, Bermudan, Russian and other countries’ aviation requirements to provide maintenance on Boeing, Airbus, Sukhoi Superjet 100, Embraer and Cessna aircraft.

The company’s scope of work includes heavy maintenance (up to and including D-Checks), engine hospital repairs, line maintenance, structural repairs, engineering services (including modification under EASA Part 21J and interior components manufacture under EASA Part 21 G), component repairs, aircraft painting services, and training services (under EASA Part 147 and Russian FAR-289).

The company aims for ongoing improvement of its products, partially supported by joint projects with OEMs.

The company delivers its services to Russian airlines (S7 Group, Aeroflot Group, UTair, Ural Airlines) and to carriers from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, providing its clients with over 100 heavy maintenance forms and over 1000 light maintenance forms per year.
