Directflight Maintenance Organisation
Directflight provides compliant maintenance that meets with the requirements of EASA Part M for all its aircraft. Due to the diversity of its flight operations, Directflight contracts the majority of its maintenance to approved maintenance providers in various parts of the United Kingdom that are best located to support our operations.
Our engineers, based around the UK and across the world during aircraft deployments, are managed by the Directflight Engineering Manager. He is responsible for co-ordinating the compliant maintenance of company aircraft and is a CAA approved Key Post Holder directly accountable to the Managing Director. He ensures that the required maintenance is carried out on all aircraft owned or operated by the company. He is also the Continuing Airworthiness Manager (CAM) and responsible for monitoring compliance with the CAA approved Minimum Equipment List (MEL).
Directflight acknowledges that as an AOC Operator the performance of sub-contractors remains its responsibility. All maintenance and equipment provision is monitored closely by the Continuing Airworthiness Manager under the provisions laid out in Directflight’s EASA approved Continuous Airworthiness Management Exposition (CAME). Regular audits are carried out on all of the companies operations and those of its sub-contractors under the auspices of Directflight’s Quality Management System, managed by the companies Quality Manager.
