Russia Authorises Five Domestic Companies To Produce Spare Parts For Western Aircraft
The Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (FATA) has authorised five domestic aerospace companies to produce spare parts for western-built aircraft in response to sanctions on Russian carriers prevented from importing the spares.
Russian business newspaper Vedomosti, citing an undisclosed source close to FATA, says the approval for the five companies is for developing spare parts needed for western-made aircraft inside Russia.
Most of the companies will be engaged in primarily in substitution of interior cabin parts, passenger seats and galley equipment, it reports.
The five companies are: State Civil Aviation Research Institute, S7 Technics, Ural Civil Aviation Plant, Aviation Engineering Solutions, and Navigator Institute of Aeronautical Instrumentation, it says.

While initial certificates issued are for the replacement or repair of interiors, seats and galley tooling, an extended sanction could lead to a move towards the replacement of more complex parts, Aviacionline reports.
