F/List's upholstery facility in Erfurt, Germany, received EASA Part 145 repair station approval. The European regulator's approval clears the way for the shop to provide qualified maintenance service on business aircraft upholstery. 

The aircraft interiors specialist, which had acquired the shop from ACC Columbia in February, called the upholstery work an “increasingly important strategic business area” with aftermarket demand picking up significantly during the pandemic and, along with it, refurbishment requests. The addition of the upholstery business has expanded F/List capabilities and its service network in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, the company added.

“We are very pleased to have obtained EASA approval for our upholstery facility in Erfurt. The certification shows that F/List Germany meets all EASA requirements at our new facility and that we’re able to offer our customers the high-quality services they have come to expect from us,” said F/List Germany CEO Ulrich Gehling.
