MEC currently operates a 7,100 sqm hangar at Clark International airport providing both hangar and ramp parking and a fully authorised repair station with approvals from the Civil Aviation Authority of The Philippines (CAAP), the FAA, the Cayman Islands CAA, the Qatar QCAA, the Isle of Man CAA and the San Marino CAA.
