MAJ Aviation held a grand opening for its new general aviation center at Seletar Aerospace Park on February 10. The new hangar is designed to house MAJ’s aircraft storage and MRO operation, as well as FBO services and offices for flight training providers such as Discovery Flying Club.

A unique feature of the MAJ hangar is a two-story carousel-style aircraft parking system. The two levels of the carousel can hold up to 14 aircraft, which are loaded onto the top level by a hydraulic lift platform that sinks flush into the floor of the hangar when not in use.

According to MAJ, “the GAC hangar is the first and only aviation center in Singapore dedicated to serving the GA community as a one-stop general aviation center.” The hangar is situated on a 2.5-acre airside plot that is part of JTC’s Seleter Aerospace Park master plan. It took just 10 months to build at a cost of nearly $8 million.

In addition to MRO, MAJ (Booth A23) specializes in manpower supply, aircraft seats sales and technical services as the local and regional representative for Weber Aircraft and aviation consultancy.
