Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) has completed the commissioning testing for aircraft maintenance at its new 110,000 ft2 state-of-the-art maintenance facility at Birmingham Airport in the UK.
This milestone is one of the final stages of testing in readiness for the arrival, on 4 November, of four aircraft to undergo maintenance. In the last week, MAEL has been providing specialist training and inducting highly skilled aircraft engineers, all of whom will be reporting for aircraft maintenance duties from day one.
Mick Adams, managing director of MAEL, commented, “I am delighted that we have opened the hangar doors to the first aircraft in advance of our busy winter maintenance programme, and it was highly appropriate that it was one of Monarch Airlines’ aircraft to cross the hangar threshold for the first time. This was a very special moment for me personally and the entire team who continue to work tirelessly to ensure there is a seamless transition to full maintenance operations. This is another MAEL project that will be delivered on time, in budget – safely.”
