RUAG Aviation, headquartered in Berne, Switzerland, has opened a new component repair center in Subang, Malaysia. The facility will serve as a component services hub for aviation customers and OEMs across Asia. This announcement follows a successful audit by the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EAFA) Part 145 approval.
As an experienced provider of full lifecycle support on both civil and military aircraft, RUAG Aviation offers a comprehensive portfolio of aviation services, with an extensive network of partners within Asia and worldwide. It is an authorized OEM for Bombardier, Cirrus, Cessna and many others, and is also the manufacturer of the Dornier 228, a versatile aircraft used for special missions, and passenger and cargo operations.
David Jones, general manager of RUAG Aviation Malaysia, said, “To fulfill our customer expectations in the region, we closely cooperate with them and partner with selected OEMs. The successful audit by FOCA, combined with our EASA Part 145 approval, affirms and supports our objective to become the partner of choice.”
