SHAH ALAM: RMAF has issued three separate quotation notices for chemicals and paint for maintenance work on three aircraft, the Airbus A400M; IPTN/CASACN-235 and the Beechcraft B200T. Both the B200T maritime surveillance aircraft and the A400M airlifter are operated out of the Subang airbase.
The CN-235 – MSA, transport and VIP – are operated by No 1 Squadron from the Kuching airbase in Sarawak.
The QN notice for the CN-235
PEROLEHAN KEPERLUAN BAHAN KIMIA BAGI KEGUNAAN RAWATAN BERJADUAL BARISAN PERTAMA DAN KEDUA PESAWAT CN235-220/MSA/VIP TAHUN 2023
The notice for the Beechcraft B200T

The A400M notice

The notices above showed RMAF determination that MRO work should be done by the service itself. The service of course sent out the components for repairs to OEM or approved maintenance providers if they lack the capabilities to do it.
The QNs also proved that any attempts for local MRO centres are simply another attempt of building castles in the sky.
