Airbus to Showcase Range of Products at DSA 2018

: Apr 10, 2018 - : 3:41 am

Airbus will bring a range of air defence products and services as well as helicopters during the 16th edition of the Defence Services Asia (DSA 2018) exhibition at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) from April 16-19.


The aircraft manufacturer would feature the A400M-line of military carrier aircraft, currently being used by the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) such as the C295 Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA), as well as the Eurostar 3000 satellite suitable for all kinds of communication missions.


The Helicopter section will display scale models of the versatile H225M heavy helicopter from the Super Puma family, which is in service with the RMAF, as well as the popular H175 super-medium and H135 light-twin civil rotorcraft.


“Malaysia is a major customer of Airbus, and is the first export customer for the A400M, with the RMAF receiving its fourth carrier aircraft last year. Airbus has also completed the MEASAT-3b, the largest satellite ordered by the country’s communications sector in 2014,” the company said in the statement.


Visitors to the Airbus stand can get information on the company’s leading-edge military fixed wing and rotary aircraft, as well as its satellite products.


Airbus also has major regional helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul facilities and a training centre in Subang.


The country’s airlines are important Airbus customers and have ordered more than 720 passenger and cargo aircraft from the company. Over 270 Airbus aircraft are in service on domestic, regional and long-haul routes, helping to make Malaysia a regional air hub.


Airbus also has strong industrial partnerships in Malaysia, which is its largest supplier in South East Asia and a primary source of composite parts. “Made in Malaysia” aircraft parts fly on the complete Airbus civil aircraft product line (A320 family, A330neo, A350 XWB, and A380), as well as the A400M and H130 helicopter.
