Use this oneSkyways Technics announced that its subsidiary Skyways Technics Asia in Subang, Malaysia has extended its structural repair workshops and warehousing facilities to more than 3,000 square metres. The workshops’ surface area has tripled, with the installation of additional shops for sheet metal and composite work. The warehouse has doubled in size, increasing the space for both owned and consigned structural components that are available for loan, exchange and outright sale. The components also further support operators in AOG situations.

Skyways Technics Asia continues to focus on regional aircraft support and is now able to release structural repairs for all ATR interior, fuselage, wing, nacelle, and door items, with both EASA and CAAM certification. The scope includes sensitive components such as radomes, outboard and inboard flaps, and flight control surfaces (ailerons/elevators /rudders).

Amaury Parent, regional manager in charge of Skyways Technics Asia development, said, “this substantial capability addition is a natural step after the successful launch of our MRO operations in Malaysia two years ago, a launch that was greatly welcomed by operators, MROs, and lessors throughout the Asia-Pacific region. There is definitely a need for more capabilities to be established in Asia Pacific, and this is why we have decided to specialise in regional aircraft structural repairs in Malaysia.

“Our capabilities are unique in this region, and the need is confirmed, from OEMs wanting to build a better aftermarket support network for operators, to airlines willing to use high-quality and affordable repair services, to MROs looking into refocusing on the core business of turning aircraft checks quickly and efficiently. Structural components are bulky and heavy, and sending them to Europe or North America for repair also often results in occasions where freight cost outweighs the actual repair cost. We are very confident that the market will naturally use the added value of our services when flight operations get back on track. Generally, we also know that the regional aircraft fleet will continue to grow over the coming years as well as continue to retire old aircraft types that are not supported anymore, and we’ll see the more modern and cost-efficient platforms that we are specialised in.”

Skyways Technics A/S is a European EASA and FAA part 145 approved MRO focused on the maintenance of regional aircraft from its hangar facilities in Billund and Sonderborg, Denmark. Skyways Technics A/S is focused on spare parts support to aircraft operators and owners around the world through its subsidiaries located in Kuala Lumpur, Dubai and Miami in the US.
