Mena Technics, in partnership with U.S.-based Aviance Global, established an MRO in Bahrain for both commercial and private jets, the services provider announced today. The center is a collaboration with Aviance subsidiary NextGen Aviation Services (formerly known as Pulsar Aviation Services) and will offer EASA Part 145 maintenance in the region. Plans call to expand these services to Saudi Arabia in the near future.

Mena Technics and Aviance Global/NextGen Aviation will work together to develop a pipeline of Bahraini personnel, estimating that they will train 10 aircraft engineers and 20 technicians over the next three years with the support of the Tamkeen “Train and Place” program.

“As part of Mena Aerospace’s long-term growth strategy, the opening of our own full-service MRO facility in collaboration with Aviance Global/NextGen Aviation in Bahrain supports the kingdom’s efforts in strengthening its position as a key aviation and logistics hub both regionally and globally,” said Mohammed Juman, founder and managing director of Mena Technics parent Mena Aerospace.

The plan is to provide one-stop services, added Mena Technics accountable manager Khalid Hamza. “With our own MRO center, we are positioned to offer full turnkey solutions to third-party Airbus, Boeing, and Gulfstream aircraft for both private and commercial operators.”
