Aerospace Council: Update on the MRO regulations for Thailand
The demand for air transport has surged in Thailand, boosting demand for MRO services to US$ 974 million in 2018. On the contrary, supply of MRO services is still inadequate, serving only 40% of the demand. Therefore, there is huge potential to business development. Thailand offers new investment opportunities in aviation, logistics, and the manufacturing of aircraft parts. However, some of these opportunities have been limited by provisions of the Air Navigation Act of 2497 (1954 AD).
In July, the government approved new guidelines and authorities to the Civil Aviation Administration Thailand in regards to the “Characteristics Relating to the Registered Capital and Business Management Power of an Applicant for an Aircraft Production License, a Major Aircraft Appliances Production License and an Applicant for a Repair Station Certificate”.
Come and join the Aerospace Council meeting to learn more about the recent changes to the Air Navigation Act of Thailand.
