Triumph Group's Triumph Aviation Services Asia (TASA) has signed an MOU with Thai Aviation Industries (TAI), a certified repair station under the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand. TASA is a subsidiary of Triumph Group, located in Chonburi, Thailand.
The MOU, executed at a ceremony presided over by Air Chief Marshal Supachai Saingurn, MD of TAI, and Monty Richardson, president of TASA, outlines both parties' intent to cooperate on a wide range of training, business development and maintenance services, including composite training for Diamond DA40 and DA62 aircraft maintenance, design of approval (DOA) support, testing, repair, calibration and overhaul of aircraft components, as well as new capability development in aircraft structures and satellites.
“The establishment of this MOU is an important milestone for both TASA and TAI, marking the continuation of the cooperative relationship that Triumph Group is advocating with our local and regional Asia Pacific partners and customers,” says Richardson. “This is a key foundation for mutual understanding and leveraging of our individual and organisational strengths and capabilities.”
TAI, Thailand's international MRO, has various capabilities including aircraft maintenance up to O-level, component repair and overhaul of piston engines and propellers, aircraft parts and logistics support, NDI service up to level-3 and an ISO 17025 standard tools and equipment calibration shop.
Triumph Aviation Services Asia, a two-time Boeing Silver Performance Excellence recipient and the first Thailand-based MRO station to receive EASA DOA Part 21J approval for nacelle components design and validation, conducts repairs and overhauls for a wide range of complex aircraft structures and components such as engine nacelles, flight control surfaces and various aircraft accessories.
