North Charleston, South Carolina is the site for Lufthansa Technik’s third Boeing monitoring operation. Inspectors are now permanently on site, where 787s will be the first aircraft to be inspected. Lufthansa Technik markets the site under the Aircraft Production Inspection Program (APIP), offering independent production inspection to airlines and leasing companies. APIP inspectors are deployed at all major Boeing final assembly sites. Lufthansa Technik’s other US sites include Everett and Renton.
