CAMO (Continued Airworthiness Management)

CAMO service In accordance with EASA regulations, it is now possible that some organisations approved under certain conditions, to extend the validity of Airworthiness Review Certificate (ARC) for a year, by twice, without any paperwork or requests to INAC.
