AMAC Aerospace celebrated in style at the inauguration of its new hangar on Friday, 7 September when it held the official opening during this year's Airex event, held at Istanbul Atatürk Airport.

A cocktail reception, hosted by CEO and Executive Chairman Kadri Muhiddin and Atilla Guney, COO of AMAC Aerospace Turkey, welcomed some 200 guests, including leading aviation executives, members of Turkey's Civil Aviation Authority and Turkish media.

The facilities, which include hangarage, spacious offices and shop-floor space will be dedicated initially to carrying out maintenance support on the Pilatus PC12-NG.

Marking the significance of the occasion and the strengthening partnership between Pilatus and AMAC Aerospace as the exclusive Middle East sales distributor for the PC12-NG, Ignaz Greetener, VP Business Unit, Pilatus, presented Kadri Muhiddin with a large elaborate Swiss cowbell.

The presentation followed speeches welcoming AMAC to the airport from General Directorate of State Airports Authority (GDSAA), Orhan Birdal and Deputy General Director of Civil Aviation, Haydar Yalçin.

AMAC Aerospace exhibited at Airex in conjunction with Pilatus, bringing over their privately owned Pilatus aircraft to showcase on the static display. The aircraft generated considerable interest from show visitors.

The Swiss based company will be positioning its newly opened Turkish hangar to support customers from the Gulf area. "We are very excited about the prospect for sales in the Middle Eastern region and our initial response to the aircraft has been very positive.

Potential clients become even more interested when they appreciate maintenance can be carried out as close as Turkey," said Atilla Guney, COO of AMAC Aerospace Turkey.
