Boeing's AH-6i, a light attack/reconnaissance helicopter, is currently being considered by the Malaysian government to fulfill the country's attack helicopter requirement, it said in a statement.
Under the agreement, the two companies will discuss opportunities for Destini Prima, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Destini Bhd, to expand its current expertise in aviation safety MRO to provide services and support for aircraft such as component maintenance.
"Exploring the possibilities for Destini Prima to build on its current services portfolio would not only benefit Destini Prima's business, but also is consistent with Boeing's aims to help expand opportunities throughout Malaysia's aerospace and defence industry," Jim Armington, East Asia & Pacific International Business Development Vice-President, Boeing Defense, Space & Security, said.
Destini Prima Chief Executive Officer Tunku Johan Mansur said, "We are delighted to cooperate with Boeing to identify efficient and effective support solutions for the AH-6i helicopter and expand our aircraft-support capabilities."
The Destini Group is a leading Malaysian integrated engineering solutions provider, while Destini Prima specialises in maintenance, repair and overhaul of safety and survival products and spares for the aviation industry.
The group holds internationally recognised certifications from leading industrial regulatory and accreditation authorities.
