Airbus Helicopters will add a new maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) complex adjacent to its existing facility in the Kobe Airport Facility in Japan, the company announced on 29 November.

The company’s existing facility can accommodate up to 25 medium-sized helicopters simultaneously. It also houses its regional engineering hub and helicopter full motion full-flight simulator, which has trained over 500 pilots and engineers in Japan and across the region.

With this expansion, the facility will be able to handle about 40 medium-sized helicopters at one time. The new building will include a hangar, an administration office and a warehouse.

Construction will begin in June 2019, with the new facility expected to be operational in November 2019.
