  1. Question, if the govt is paying for the maintenance .. why are we leasing the aircraft? ie. how does the leasing model different with the normal purchase model Kalau sekadar nak monthly outflow .. the govt can take a bank loans and pay monthly.

  2. RMN MOH were bought directly by the government that’s the reason it is paying the maintenance. RMAF is the one using leased AW139s.

  3. Performance based contract is actually commonly used in the logistics & haulage industry where uptime is critical.
