Fokker Services has received FAA and EASA approval for its new component repair shop in Singapore. The component repair shop focuses on regional aircraft and offers avionics, hydraulics and limited structural component maintenance. Fokker Technologies has been doing business in the Asia-Pacific region for many years and opened the new facility in Singapore in February last year to adapt to the growing market.
Fokker Services in The Netherlands has applied to the FAA for approval to install a cooktop stove as part of an A318 conversion to executive use.
Hamilton Sundstrand has signed an agreement with Fokker Services to provide spare parts in support of Fokker repair work at its Amsterdam facility. The purchase contract, which runs through 2016, is valued at $33.2 million. It covers “integrated drive generators and other equipment” for aircraft built mainly by Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Fokker.
The U.S. company has also announced three maintenance and support deals with airlines here at the show:
Bombardier Aerospace has strengthened its alliance with Fokker Services to increase the availability and reduce the cost of spare parts for operators of its out-of-production Dash 8/Q-Series 100/200/300. Under the agreement Fokker Services has secured more than 2,600 part numbers from Bombardier for worldwide distribution. Bombardier will also continue to market and sell Dash 8/Q-Series 100/200/300 parts to operators worldwide.
IAI Elta Systems has devised a new maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) solution based on the Bombardier Q400 twin-engine commercial turboprop, in recognition of growing demand for cost-effective maritime patrol aircraft (MPA).
Geneva-based MasterJet recently took possession of an Airbus A320 conversion by Fokker Aircraft Services. FAS converted the aircraft from airline to executive configuration and included many custom-made features such as Direct View.
Fokker Aircraft Services (Stand 1338) is here promoting its Direct View cabin surveillance system for VIP aircraft. Devised for flight attendants, it has a positive knock-on effect on the cabin design. The first example of Direct View was installed in a converted Airbus A320 delivered in April at Fokker’s facility in Woensdrecht, Netherlands.
Netherlands-based Fokker Aircraft Services (FAS) has added aircraft interior “re-skinning” to its maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities. According to Stephen Hands, v-p of marketing and sales, the company is now one of only a few MRO providers in Europe to offer the service. The shop uses a vacuum applicator to re-skin the side panels, luggage bins and ceiling panels of aircraft interiors regardless of size or aircraft type.
Rekkof Aircraft will invite tenders from established Tier 1 aerostructures companies to produce parts for its planned Fokker 100NG development of the Dutch jetliner design at a factory to be built in Brazil, according to chief executive Maarten van Eeghen.
