The Aircraft Repair Company Trenčín (LOTN) has succeeded in winning yet another contract through international competitive bidding. This time it has won a contract for a general overhaul of an L-410 UVP aircraft owned by the Lithuanian Armed Force. This is another success of the state-owned LOTN company following its last year's success in the international bidding process for a general overhaul of NATO helicopters.

For the Trenčín region, this is another piece of great news because LOTN is a major regional employer. For the company, more contracts means more work for employees. This has recently resulted in increasing the employment levels in the company by approx. 30 personnel.

The L-410 UVP aircraft was transported to Trenčín in the first half of February. Under the planned repair works, LOTN will check the aircraft's body, systems, technical units and devices; upgrade its avionic systems; and perform a general overhaul of the two turbine engines and the two propellers.

The aircraft was manufactured 35 years ago and underwent its last general overhaul in 2006. It has logged a total of 5,543 flying hours since inception of its operation.

The contract is expected to be completed over the course of 2017.
