Dnest Hosts New Site for ExecuJet Malaysia MRO
ExecuJet Aviation is moving into a new facility in Malaysia, having entered into a joint venture with local company Dnest Aviation Services. On October 31, the Switzerland-based business aviation services group ended its existing arrangements with the Subang SkyPark FBO and moved into new premises on the other side of Kuala Lumpur's Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (also known as Subang). The new partnership with Dnest will initially focus on providing maintenance, repair and overhaul support for business aircraft. ExecuJet's Malaysian subsidiary was recently approved by Bombardier to provide line and AOG support for its family of jets, and it can also service Gulfstream aircraft. The operation will also provide mobile support for operators throughout southeast Asia. Dnest was formed in the early 1970s as an aerial photography company and has expanded into business aircraft support. It was acquired by its current owner in 1990 and is run by CEO Earnest Koilpillai. ExecuJet Malaysia is led by general manager Nick Fourie.
