Midcoast Aviation First And Only Cayman Islands-certified AMO in the U.S.

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Midcoast Aviation recently announced that its Teterboro satellite received Cayman Islands Certification. This makes the company the first and only Cayman Islands-certified Aviation Maintenance Organization (AMO) in the United States.

The AMO certification authorizes Midcoast Aviation Teterboro to support Cayman CAA-registered aircraft with enhanced responsiveness for maintenance projects. Without the AMO certification, a service center is required to obtain short-term Cayman approval specific to an aircraft before work can be performed. The one-off approval requires payment of a fee and is only available during working hours, which can result in flight delays especially when AOG service has to be performed. “If we needed to assist a customer on a weekend, night or during a Cayman holiday, our hands were tied,” says David Smith, vice president MRO satellite operations for Midcoast Aviation. “We currently support 19 maintenance events on Cayman-registered aircraft annually and we expect this number to grow significantly.”

Midcoast Aviation worked closely with the Cayman CAA to obtain the certification and is subject to annual audits.
