Dassault Aviation Skypark MRO Centre Fully Ready By Early Next Year

The maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facility for business jets operated by Dassault Aviation is anticipated to be fully operational in the first quarter of next year.

State executive councillor for industry and trade Dato’ Teng Chang Khim said that the world’s largest business aircraft manufacturer is currently developing the MRO centre, which is constructed on a 144,000 square-foot site at the Skypark Regional Aviation Center (RAC), here.

He said that once completed, the maintenance facility is expected to accommodate nine units of Falcon 8X and seven units of Falcon 10X aircraft.

“The maintenance centre for the Falcon aircraft is currently under construction and it would also provide MRO services for the aircraft from the company (Dassault Aviation) as well. This would make it the largest MRO hub in the Asia Pacific.

“This is part of Selangor’s ambition. According to the Selangor Aerospace Action Plan, the state aims to expand the aerospace industry in the next 10 years,” he said when met after overseeing the Falcon 8X, here yesterday.

Teng said that the Falcon 8X is the most recent business jet developed by the French manufacturer.

He said the aircraft was showcased to the public at the Selangor Aviation Show (SAS) in September of last year and is also planned to be on display at the upcoming exhibition.

“I am pleased that I was able to examine the aircraft and get the latest information from Dassault Aviation regarding the growth of the sector in Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific.

Dassault Aviation is a French aerospace company with a track record of manufacturing both military aircraft and business jets.
