Sprint Aviation adds B737 evacuation slides to its capability list

On September 23rd, Sprint Aviation delivered its first of a promising series of evacuation slide overhaul services. The first customer, Nolinor, granted a D31354-series slide that allowed Sprint Aviation to setup the tooling and optimize the around time required. The company can now process a standard overhaul,including the Hydrostatic on the reservoir (if required),in less than five (5) days. In the last quarter of 2016, the company intends to expand its evacuation slide overhaul services to wide body Airbus aircraft.

Hydrostatic Testing registration

September 2, 2016, Sprint Aviation has been certified by the dangerous goods directorate of Transport Canada to perform water jacket and proof pressure testing on pressure vessels. This expands the capabilities on inflation reservoirs, fire extinguishers, oxygen cylinders and hoses requiring periodical testing. This in-house activity provides for better turn-times on overhauled units. The facility can process as many as 100 cylinders per day, from inflation hoses to large crew O2 oxygen cylinders and wide body aircraft evacuation slides inflation reservoirs.

Sprint Aviation is now EASA approved

On May 9 2016, Transport Canada announced the granting of EASA approval 145.7298 to Sprint Aviation. The process is one of close collaboration between the European agency and Transport Canada through the bilateral agreement that came into force July 26, 2011. Requestors of an EASA approval must adapt their policies and processes to cover the additional requirements. Once these steps are complete (and fees paid for), the approval is granted.

And what’s in it for you? This translates into the possibility to provide dual certifications on components (EASA and FAA, this last one as a result of the BASA that led to 14CFR43.17). Our MRO and distributor clientele, now benefits from the added flexibility to serve customers from the 32 members states of the European Community but also other countries that elected to adhere to EASA standards.
