Aircraft Repair And Service

Posted on December 17, 2010 by team

The Vnukovsky-400 Aircraft Repair plant is the biggest one in Russia.  It was founded in 1941 and now about 1500 people are working there. It has the well-developed infrastructure, modern production complex, qualified workers and lots of certificates for making different types of aircraft repair and service.

In May, 2010 the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) audited this plant and certified that it corresponded to all requirements.
