Posted 11 February 2019 · Add Comment

The co-located Aircraft Interiors and MRO Middle East shows got off to a great start today with a series of deals and partnerships with innovation at the heart of the action.

Satair, signed a contract with Honeywell to distribute the company’s JetWave high-speed in-flight connectivity system to the global business jet market.

Satair also used the event to announce a partnership with Jordan’s MRO provider Joramco, to supply consumables and expendables supporting both Boeing and Airbus aircraft.

With a history dating back more than 25 years, this deal marks a milestone in the relationship between Satair and Joramco.
The event also served to demonstrate some of the latest innovations in technology and inform attendees how it can be applied in the aerospace industry. Two companies demonstrating virtual reality technology at MRO Middle East include Rapid Access and first-time exhibitor Spiral Technology.
Rapid Access is showcasing virtual reality technology that the company is working closely with developers to bring specific aviation modules to the platform, with a goal of improving training to minimise damage to airframes, which could potentially save users tens of thousands of dollars. “This is one of the things the industry has asked to try and develop,” said Mike Palmer, Regional QHSE Manager at Rapid Access. “The technology is only about 12-14 months old and there are only about six or seven operational units in the world. We have two of them here in the Middle East.”
Spiral Technology chose to exhibit at MRO Middle East for the first time in 2019 to demonstrate mixed reality technology holographic headset aimed at improving the overall productivity of MRO personnel. The technology overlays a digital layer of information over the physical assets themselves, giving engineers the opportunity to work handsfree and have instructions in view. In particular, the technology aims to allow engineers to increase the speed of their operations while simultaneously reducing the number of errors which ultimately decreases engine turnaround time.
“This event is a great combination of conference and exhibition,” said Konstantyn Shyshkin, CEO, Spiral Technology. “We have seen how committed the industry is to innovation and to trialling new technologies.”
“Seeing the business done here today really reinforces the fact that the MRO industry in the Middle East is a growth opportunity across the whole supply chain,” said Lydia Janow, Managing Director/Events & Tradeshows, Aviation Week Network. “With the region’s in-service fleet predicted to increase from 2,025 aircraft in 2018 to 3,475 aircraft in 2027, an annual growth rate of 6.2% and MRO demand expected to grow to $13.1 billion by the same year 2027, it’s clear to see exhibitors at MRO Middle East are well placed to meet these demands in future.”
