As one of the rising stars of the Bangkok technology sector, Block Aero was recently invited to visit the Thai Airways maintenance base at Don Mueang International Airport (DMK). Block Aero had a chance to explore the operations and processes at their MRO facility while being guided by Mr Somwung Arumsadjakul, Director of DMK MRO Operations.
Check out that A350
We were lucky to catch a glimpse of one of Thai Airways’s A350s as it was undergoing scheduled maintenance. The A350 will soon become the backbone of the Thai Airways long-haul fleet, with the number in service rising to 23 aircraft by 2027.
Few things illustrate the intricacy of the aviation sector more than the exposed workings of a turbofan engine. This Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine contains more than 20,000 parts, all of which must work in harmony to deliver the 84,200 lbf of thrust needed to get the A350 off the ground. Block Aero helps airlines to make sense of this complexity, tracking the real-time status and technical documentation of the life limited parts installed on the engine.
Thai Airways is one of the many airlines that Block Aero has learned from in the development of its digital asset management suite and MRO management tools. We are always looking to partner with leading aviation and aerospace organizations to improve safety management systems and eliminate the inefficiencies encountered when managing high value aviation assets.
