Lufthansa Technik Component Services (LTCS) in Tulsa / Oklahoma
continues its growth path by expanding into further capabilities.
Recently, the company received the approval of the Civil Aviation
Administration of China (CAAC). The Chinese authority has approved
LTCS as an "adequate organization to accomplish maintenance of
components". Additionally, LTCS has become the 33rd design department
of Lufthansa Technik's EASA 21/J Design Organization (DO) and the
first one in the Americas.

The DO status allows LTCS to create their own approved data which
differentiates the company from many other repair stations. This is a
big step forward in developing further repair methods to improve the
component services of the company. Customers can benefit from shorter
turnaround times, reliability improvements and from overcoming
material obsolescence.

"In 2017 the idea was born, that LTCS should have their own Design
Engineers to be as flexible as possible in a constantly changing
aftermarket environment. After two years of training and mentorship
program, LTCS is very proud to start this new chapter with three
Design Engineers", said Tobias Baumgart, COO of Lufthansa Technik
Component Services.  

LTCS is now certified by the FAA, the EASA and the CAAC. Today, more
than 680 employees are working at its eleven locations throughout
North, Central and South America. The company offers a comprehensive
bandwidth of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul services for aircraft
components. The maintenance of commercial aircraft components
encompasses a wide range of services from repairs of single
components all the way to a complete material management system with
access to Lufthansa Technik's comprehensive component pool.
