The National Civil Aviation Agency created in 2006 is mainly responsible for matters related to civil aircraft and its components, personnel licensing and operations in Brazil. This internationally recognized certification for quality and management is a key asset to Barfield’s ability to provide a larger footprint within the region.
Barfield started supporting the SATENA ATR fleet in December 2010 through its Airline programs business unit, dedicated to full support contracts. The services provided to the Colombian airline include component and engineering support, pool access and Main Base inventory for a total fleet of 10 aircraft supported by Barfield.
Within the scope of this extension, Barfield will increase the Main Base for components in order to fit SATENA’s requirements for its fleet expansion.
