Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL), the award-winning independent aircraft maintenance provider and division of The Monarch Group, is delighted to announce that it has completed the commissioning testing for aircraft maintenance at its new 110,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art maintenance facility at Birmingham Airport in the UK.
This important milestone is one of the final stages of testing in readiness for next week where on 4th November four aircraft will arrive to undergo maintenance. The new facility incorporates high levels of technology and will have an industry-leading approach to maintaining aircraft. 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.
Commenting on this milestone, Mick Adams, Managing Director of MAEL, said, “I am delighted that we have opened the hangar doors to the first aircraft in advance of our busy winter maintenance program, 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 next Monday. This is another MAEL project that will be delivered on time, in budget – safely.”
