Construction commences at ExecuJet's new Subang MRO
Ground has been broken on a purpose-built MRO centre at Subang airport. The design will maximise hangar space, accommodate even the largest jets in development and have environmentally-friendly features.

Dassault Aviation subsidiary ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia has started construction of its new purpose-built MRO centre at Subang airport, helping to reinforce Malaysia's position as a regional hub for MRO.

ExecuJet, which is already Malaysia's largest business aviation MRO organisation, has a facility at Subang airport, but will be relocating to the larger, purpose-built facility in the fourth quarter of 2023 when construction is completed.

The new facility will have a gross floor area of approximately 149,500 sq ft including corporate offices, customer areas and back shops that further expand ExecuJet's MRO capabilities.

The ultra-large aircraft hangar will be able to accommodate 10 to 15 business jets of various sizes simultaneously, plus there will be a large dedicated apron area for use.

ExecuJet MRO Services Malaysia has appointed a team of experienced consultants to design the facility.

“These consultants are well-known in the market, especially in southeast Asia, and have been involved in the construction of aviation MRO facilities in Malaysia and the wider region,” says regional VP Asia for ExecuJet MRO Services Ivan Lim. “You need to have a team with experience and knowledge of aircraft MRO hangar operations, so they can advise on how the facility's design can complement the needs of your MRO operation with the aim of maximising operational efficiency. This is why it's so important to have a project team that is familiar with the work processes and needs of our industry.”

A key objective behind the design of the MRO facility is to maximise hangar space as well as to have environmentally-friendly features as part of the group's ongoing corporate social responsibility commitment. ExecuJet will make use of natural sunlight as much as possible, while the lighting inside will be energy-efficient LED. The facility will be partly powered by an 85kW rooftop solar system and there will be water tanks for harvesting rainwater. The design of the hangar has also been future-proofed. For example, the reinforced concrete floor can accommodate the weight of business aircraft substantially heavier than those available today. And it can easily accommodate the largest business jets in development, such as the ultra-large cabin Dassault Falcon 10X, which is due to enter into service in 2025.

ExecuJet MRO Services serves Dassault, Bombardier and Gulfstream operators from across the Asia region and is certified by the CAA of Malaysia, the FAA, EASA and many other international airworthiness authorities. It is able to quickly dispatch mobile repair teams around the region, when needed, including to growing markets such as Vietnam.
