Service centre additions grow Piaggio network
Piaggio Aerospace has strengthened its after sales network by appointing two more authorised service centres; one in Paris Le Bourget, France and the other in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Piaggio Aerospace has appointed a further two authorised service centres in France and Malaysia.

Piaggio Aerospace has appointed two more authorised service centres (ASCs): Paris Le Bourget-based DV Technik and Asia Aero Engineering in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Paris Le Bourget is a strategic hub for European business aviation and the new centre brings to five the number of ASCs that Piaggio has on the continent: as well as the factory-owned one in Genoa, Italy, P180 operators have access to ASCs in Mönchengladbach, Germany; Rotterdam in the Netherlands; and in Lugano, Switzerland.

DV Technik is fully owned by Oyonnair Group, an airline company specialising in medical transportation. Oyonnair operates a fleet of three Citation Mustangs and nine Piaggio Avanti IIs, with four additional Avantis just recently inducted.

”We have being operating Piaggio Avanti aircraft for five years now, achieving more than ten thousand flight hours and becoming the fleet leader in Europe,” comments DV Technik and Oyonnair founder and chief executive officer Daniel Vovk. “We have thus developed in-house capabilities to mainly serve Piaggio Aerospace's captive fleet and to offer AOG recovery assistance off-site to third parties.”

The new maintenance centre operated by AAE at Subang airport in Kuala Lumpur is the second to be operational in Singapore, a south-east Asia market that is considered to have the highest potential in terms of future growth. Asia Aero Engineering has an active contract to provide maintenance for the helicopters of sister company Aircraft Power Lines, a provider of aircraft service including medevac activities both at a governmental and a private level.

“We are proud to have been appointed as the first Piaggio Aerospace authorised service centre in Malaysia,” adds AAE CEO Mohd Shazwan Shaharuddin. “We already successfully operate a P180 Avanti EVO. It is registered on our AOC for VIP and medevac purposes around south-east Asian countries. Now we are able to consolidate our knowledge of this amazing aircraft and are ready to assist all the Asian fleet.”
