MII Membership Visit to MAS - KLIA Engineering & Maintenance Centre
MII Membership has once again organised another exciting and informative learning opportunity through its one-day visit to the largest Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul provider in the world, the MAS Engineering & Maintenance Centre at KLIA. The MAS Engineering & Maintenance facility at KLIA is the first purpose-built hangar in South East Asia for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of both wide bodied and narrow bodied aircraft. This gigantic hangar covers 23,215 square metres and took 24 months to build. It is manned by highly skilled and trained engineers and technicians. Services provided by MAS Engineering include airframe maintenance and modification, AOG (ground) support, component and engine maintenance and support, specialised engineering services as well as training and consultancy.
The well-equipped engineering facility located both in Sepang (KLIA) and Subang (SZB), manned by extensively trained and highly skilled personnel manifests MAS Engineering and Maintenance’s commitment to excel in its operations. Expansion of capacity over the last 10 years has resulted in 18 bays for wide body and narrow body aircraft within 6 hangars, spread over an area of 120 thousand square meters, and close to 5.0 million commercial airframe maintenance man-hours, making it one of the largest MRO providers in the world. The facility is not open to the public. Therefore, the first 40 MII members to register were chosen to get first-hand knowledge on the various services provided by MAS—KLIA Engineering & Maintenance Centre coupled with an engaging experience by MAS experts and personnel. On this trip, the participants were able to experience and understand the services provided by MAS—KLIA Engineering & Maintenance Centre, identified the risk exposures in aviation engineering and improved their understanding of aviation risks in general.
MII members gained an in-depth and exciting experience on the services and aircraft placed in the centre
