Lion Technic has taken another step forward to achieving its goal of becoming an EASA-certified maintenance organization, says the airline.
Lion Technic is planning to employ eight EASA-certified maintenance personnel from Europe who will work with Lion Technic’s line maintenance personnel at Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. 
“Their role is to be mentors and help ensure that Lion’s line maintenance is in keeping with EASA standards,” said Lion Technic president Romdani Adali Adang.
The eight will comprise of five B1 mechanical engineers and three B2 avionics engineers.
The decision to employ maintenance personnel, who are already EASA certified, is part of Lion Group’s ongoing commitment to training and to meeting the highest international standards. EASA, along with US FAA certification, are the two most internationally accepted standards in the global aviation industry. Lion Technic aims to get its line maintenance base at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport certified by EASA and then progressively get its other line maintenance stations EASA certified. The ultimate goal is to eventually get Lion Technic EASA certified as a heavy maintenance organization for airframes, engines and components. EASA stands for European Aviation Safety Agency.
