Europrop International GmbH (EPI) has signed an In-Service Support (ISS) agreement with the Malaysian government for the TP400 turboprop engines powering the Royal Malaysian Air Force's A400M military transport aircraft, at the 2017 Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibition (LIMA). The agreement was signed by Christophe Bruneau, President of EPI, and Dato' Sri Abdul Rahim Mohamad Radzi, Secretary General at the Malaysian Ministry of Defense.

This contract follows a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) signed on March 21 by EPI and Global Turbine Asia (GTA), a Malaysian joint venture with Safran that provides maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for helicopter and airplane engines.

EPI and GTA provide support services for the TP400 engines' fleet powering the Royal Malaysian Air Force's four A400M airlifters. The first phase of the contract runs until the end of October 2017, leading to the second phase, when GTA will become the prime contractor for these support services.

Under the terms of the agreement, EPI and GTA will provide local support services. GTA's Subang facility already deploys a Customer Support Representative (CSR), Field Support Representatives (FSR) and Logistics Support Representatives (LSR) to ensure that the Royal Malaysian Air Force continues to receive timely support for their engines.

 "We are delighted to continue to build a successful partnership with GTA, which enables us to provide local support for the TP400 engine fleet," said Christophe Bruneau, President of EPI.

EPI will support GTA to obtain Approved Maintenance Organization (AMO) certification from EPI, as well as certifications from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA-Part145) and the Malaysian airworthiness authority DGTA.

  1. Ten MiG-29 fighters belonging to the Myanmar air force have been upgraded at RAC MiG facilities near Moscow, a source in the Russian delegation at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) "2017 show in Malaysia last week told AIN. Moscow is now offering similar upgrades to Malaysia, which acquired 18 in 1994, and to Bangladesh, which procured 10 MiG-29s at the turn of the century."
    Apakah tudm akan melirik ?

    1. my sources said that the chances to upgrade the mig is thin. its the same for the mrca program and Kuwaiti hornet offer. there only very thin chance that it will succeed. you know the problem right. no budget and no political will.

    2. IMO, TUDM should just accept the Kuwait F18 offer, upgrade it to our F18 standard and use it as stop gap measure. Just scrap the MRCA program for the time being and start again when the gen 5 fighter is ready to be purchase. Just retired the Mig and with only F18 and Su30 as our main fighter we can reduce the the logistic footprint and help the ground crew.

  2. segala perolehan pesawat pejuang dan peralatan pertahanan untuk Angkatan Tentera Malaysia hanya akan dibuat selepas pilihanraya umum yg dijangka pada hujung tahun ini... ini bagi mengelakkan pembelian dan perolehan pertahanan dijadikan isu bagi pihak pembangkang untuk menjatuhkan rejim Najib....
