MAC Aero Interiors has enterds the Chinese aircraft cabin interiors market by establishing a joint venture with Benniao Aviation at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport. The newly launched MAC Sichuan will be providing cabin total technical care support to Chinese aircraft owners and operators including design, engineering, refurbishment, maintenance and modification of aircraft cabins, as well as manufacturing and installations of cabin components. The company’s capabilities will cover first, business and economy class cabins, as well as VIP cabins for narrowbody Airbus A320 Family, Boeing 737 and widebody Airbus A380 aircraft types.


Magnetic MRO, in cooperation with Netherlands organisation, XTRAPartners, has completed a teardown project for an Airbus A320 aircraft which will be used for anti-terrorism training by German Bundeswehr special forces. Magnetic MRO obtained the aircraft after an emergency landing in Tallinn at the start of 2018. The airframe found its way to the German for training of its special forces.


The teardown project took place over a course of a few weeks in Tallinn Airport where the aircraft had its stabilisers and both wings removed. Transport of the wings, stabilisers and fuselage saw German special transporter Hermann-Paule providing five big trucks, which had been used before to move parts of an Ariane space rocket and other oversize loads. Because of the nature of the fuselage, 3D modelling of the route were provided to make certain the 50m truck would fit roads and underneath bridges in Estonia and Germany. The move also includes marine transport from Paldiski, Estonia to Lübeck, Germany.
