MENA Technics, a subsidiary of Bahrain’s MENA Aerospace Enterprises, and US-based Aviance Global have announced the establishment of a regional maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) service centre in Bahrain, covering both commercial and private jets.

The centre will be a collaboration with NextGen Aviation Services (formerly known as Pulsar Aviation Services), a subsidiary of Aviance Global, and introduces a Part 145 EASA set up for base maintenance.

Together with Aviance Global/NextGen Aviation Services, MENA Technics will offer a full turn-key solution to its clients, which it said would make Bahrain a competitive location for both private aviation and commercial airlines for their heavy checks.

Bolstering MRO in the region

This partnership bolsters the MRO industry in the region and the two-party collaboration plans to expand the services to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the near future, to offer the same support services to their clients there.

As part of the agreement, MENA Technics and Aviance Global/NextGen Aviation will offer their expertise in developing and training Bahraini personnel who are accredited with Aircraft Maintenance Licenses.

It is estimated that 10 Bahraini aircraft engineers and 20 technicians will benefit from the training over the next three years. This training programme is supported by Tamkeen under its ‘Train and Place’ program.
