Malaysia : First Asia sustainable aerospace city milestone expected in 2018

The first phase of the aerospace hub will begin construction in the first quarter of 2016, in which its Subang Nexus is expected to complete in early 2018.

The Asia Aerospace City (AAC) development is touted as the aerospace business hub that offers a complete business ecosystem for industry players in South East Asia, and is currently developing its infrastructure at its Subang Nexus.

Representing connectivity across the various capacities that are here throughout Malaysia and Asia, AAC aims to nurture education, entrepreneurship and business activities.

The development will be executed in three phases and by the end of its third phase, AAC will house office space, training centres, a convention centre, a business hotel and retail spaces.

With 3.5 million square feet of space, the infrastructure is also home to the second campus of University Kuala Lumpur’s Malaysian Institute of Aviation Technology (MIAT).

This will provide businesses access to a skilled talent pool, which will inspire collaboration between various establishments within a rich environment.

Atkins, one of the world’s leading architectural firms, was awarded the contract to serve as the master designer for the development.

Using the leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) green building rating system as a guide, the company created a sustainable and innovative design for AAC.

Skyvax Sdn Bhd, which provides aviation related services, and Strand Aerospace Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SAM), which provides engineering services are among some of the industry players that have agreed to house their operations in this aerospace hub.

Skyvax has partnered up with the Czech Aviation Training Centre (CATC), a training service provider for aviation, to commit to constructing a purpose-built 100,000 square-foot training centre, which will house level D full flight simulators, flight training devices and computer based training facilities.

“AAC was designed in a way that tailors to your business needs.

“This innovative infrastructure creates a rich environment for businesses to grow, offering relevant facilities and flexibility for its occupier.

“The AAC’s Business Consulting Centre (BCC) will offer support for your business set-up and assist in operationalising your business in this hub too,” said Said Zulfikri Osman, M-AeroTech chief operating officer.

The BCC, which is one of the six business units in the AAC, has already been working with a variety of local companies that are looking to venture into the aerospace industry.

By removing the barriers that many businesses face, the BCC aims to create a smooth operation for these companies in Malaysia.
