KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 7 (Bernama) -- Asia Digital Engineering (ADE) marked a momentous achievement in conjunction with the International Civil Aviation Day by completing its 100th “C-Check” under two and a half years, “a record timeframe since inception in September 2020.”

ADE, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Capital A Bhd for aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), said in a statement that the achievement underscores ADE's unwavering commitment to upholding top-notch safety and operational standards in aviation maintenance and its position as a leading MRO player in the region.

A C-Check is a comprehensive maintenance inspection that ensures the airworthiness and safety of an aircraft and demands extensive tooling, test equipment, and special skill levels, recognised as a heavy check involving maintenance procedures for critical aircraft components and systems.

Capital A chief executive officer (CEO) Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said ADE could become one of the world’s best MRO service providers given its vast experience and knowledge from working with AirAsia and now also with third-party airlines. 

"It has the potential to grow further as it expands its offerings by bringing digital solutions and data science into MRO, offering predictive maintenance and spare parts management,” he said in the same statement. 

ADE CEO Mahesh Kumar said he believes that the company has been on the path to cementing its position as the leading MRO service provider in Asean, delivering the best value at the lowest cost with high efficiency across the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

Looking ahead, ADE said it will focus on its vision to continually deliver exceptional services, expand capabilities, and remain at the forefront of the MRO industry.

"A new hangar at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), set to be operational by the third quarter of 2024, will significantly bolster base maintenance capacity, accommodating up to 14 narrowbodies simultaneously,” it said. 

Additionally, it said the expansion plans include advancing line maintenance operations in Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, and Cambodia in 2024.
