Airbus Helicopters will add a new Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) complex adjacent to its existing facility in the Kobe Airport Facility in Japan, to now occupy a total space of 19,685 sqm.

The company’s existing facility is capable of accommodating up to 25 medium-sized helicopters simultaneously. It houses a regional engineering hub and a full motion full-flight simulator, which has trained over 500 pilots and engineers in Japan and across the region, the company said in a statement Thursday.

The complexes can now accomodate 40 medium-sized helicopters at one time. The new building will feature a hangar, an administration office, and a purpose-built warehouse.

Construction will commence in June 2019, with the new facility expected to be operational in November 2019.
