The Royal Malaysian Air Force began modification of existing CN235-220M (M44-05) tactical airlifter into maritime surveillance aircraft (MSA) under the US Maritime Security Initiative (MSI).

The aircraft was officially handed over to PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI), the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). The aircraft arrived at Hussein Sastranegara Airport, Bandung, on September 2.


Upgrading the CN235-220M to an MSA aircraft will have “a huge impact on the sovereignty and security of national waters with aircraft capabilities in line with the latest technology to be used later as well as strategic plan drafted by RMAF on future,” PTDI said.


Funded by the US through the MSI program, the equipment installed would be provided by US companies. Naval News understands that the aircraft conversion will be carried out by Science and Engineering Services International and Integrated Surveillance and Defence Inc. with PTDI acting as OEM.


It was reported in February that conversion work was to begin in April/May but sources confirmed to Naval News that the date had slipped owing to the Covid-19 situation in all three countries which resulted in travel restrictions to Indonesia.


The RMAF CN235-220M conversion into an MSA platform will be the second contract performed for Malaysia under the umbrella of the MSI, which aims at increasing maritime security and maritime domain awareness of foreign countries along the South China Sea and into South Asia.


In May 2020, the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) took delivery of the first six of twelve ScanEagle Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAV) funded by the US.


We reported last month that PTDI rolled out Senegal Air Force’s first CN-235 in Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) configuration.

GMF AeroAsia targets 10% revenue from gas turbines​


GMF AeroAsia is looking outside its core aviation business and targets over 10% revenue to come from the industrial gas turbine engine (IGTE) sector.

“In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic which greatly affects the business climate of the aviation industry, the company needs to diversify its business and optimise its resources in business segments that are not too affected by the Covid-19 pandemic such as the IGTE business segment,” the MRO provider states in a 21 October disclosure to the Indonesia Stock Exchange.

The company says that it developed capabilities within and beyond the aviation sectors since before it went public, in October 2017.

The MRO services it has provided to the IGTE sector include maintenance and repair of power plant generators; repair and installation of gas turbine rotors; as well as the repair of compressor motors and traction motors, among others.

“Going forward, the company will develop the capability and capacity of IGTE maintenance and repair through collaborations with various parties, in order to increase the company’s business volume in the non-aviation segment.”

GMF AeroAsia expects to increase activity in the IGTE sector such that it exceeds 10% of the company’s total revenue, with the rest to come from the aviation industry.

Earlier in January, the Indonesian government committed to replacing coal power plants more than two decades old with renewable energy power plants.

In July 2017, Indonesian Aerospace announced that it has entered into an agreement with Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) to collaborate in the development of N-245 and N-219. Under a Framework Agreement, the two organizations will work together on technical aspects as well marketing initiatives.[6] TAI's portfolio includes licensed production of General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon jets, SIAI-Marchetti SF.260 trainers, Cougar AS-532 search and rescue (SAR), and the N235, which the N245 is based on. The collaboration is expected to facilitate the conversion of the N245 from an aircraft designed for lightweight transport into a cost-effective commuter airplane. Initial report specifically cited TAI's involvement in the conceptual design activities of the N245.[7] Aside from the N245, the agreement also covered the joint development of a new medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that will have a capability to operate in an altitude of 40,000 feet.
