What is MAOS?

In the UK, the Maintenance Approved Organisation Scheme (MAOS) is a means by which the MOD can assess the competency of organisations wishing to provide either maintenance or continuing airworthiness support services for UK military registered aircraft.

It is a joint MOD and industry venture that has developed a regulatory framework in order to enable industry partnering arrangements and long-term service provision. The regulatory framework has been based on the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) model as specified in EC Regulation 1321/2014.

The MRP allows the following approvals to be granted:

  • Organisations involved in the maintenance of military registered aircraft or components intended to be fitted to military registered aircraft shall be approved in accordance with the provisions of MRP-Part-145.
  • Organisations carrying out continuing airworthiness management tasks shall be approved in accordance with the provisions of MRP-Part-M.
