Monarch Aircraft Engineering reaches key milestone at its new Birmingham Airport facility

Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL), the award-winning independent aircraft maintenance provider
and a division of The Monarch Group, has reached another key milestone in the construction of its
new 110,000 sq. ft state-of-the-art maintenance facility, at Birmingham Airport in the UK
Since the ground-breaking ceremony in January 2013, work has continued at a pace on the hangar
build, with the largest and heaviest component of the entire build - the "valley truss" beam - measuring
4.2 metre deep and spanning 66 metres and weighing approximately 80 tonnes, now being installed

Commenting on this milestone, Mick Adams, Managing Director of MAEL, said: "The development
of our new hangar at Birmingham Airport continues to define a new airport landscape and we are
extremely pleased that the project remains on target.  We are now working hard on the detailed
requirements for all aspects of the operation to ensure that we are ready for the first aircraft to
enter our facility in November 2013"
Will Heynes, Development Director of Birmingham Airport, said: "This development is a significant
addition to our infrastructure. It enhances our offer of world class facilities and supports our ability to
offer more skilled jobs in the region. The programme is progressing well thanks to the great efforts of
all parties involved and we look forward to welcoming the first jet into the new hangar this November"
