Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) has announced the hangar build programme remains on track for Practical Completion on the 7th October 2013 at its new 110,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art maintenance facility at Birmingham Airport in the UK.
The project is progressing to plan and budget and the new MAEL facility will be operational in November 2013.
The facility will incorporate industry-leading design and build standards and will have the capacity for Boeing 787 Dreamliner maintenance, with sufficient capacity for other wide body aircraft, such as Boeing 777, 747 and Airbus A350. The facility will be large enough to accommodate two Boeing 777-300ER aircraft or 10 narrow-body aircraft and will contain a number of component-repair and back shops.
Commenting on this milestone, Mick Adams, Managing Director of MAEL, said, “I am delighted with the progress to date and reaching Practical Completion represents again how MAEL delivers to its commitment. This is in no small part due to the efforts of our own people, the contractors John Sisk & Son Ltd, RPS Group plc and Birmingham Airport.”
