This upgrade requires a series of software changes that enable avionics functionality and features, ensuring the overall interoperability between different cockpit systems.
Mr. Bruce Watson, Chief Operating Officer of Metrojet stated, “Metrojet continues to see growth in maintenance demand in South East Asia. In the last 3 months, our Clark MRO team have successfully delivered heavy maintenance events including the latest 60-month inspection on a Global 5000 and a 12C on a Gulfstream G350. Our customers are looking for a cost effective and quality alternative to the congested, restricted and expensive options in the Region. We are uniquely positioned in Clark to deliver this competitive service with our growing maintenance team, capabilities, management and approvals.”

We see Clark as a key location for the future and are expanding our established operations to be part of that future.”
