Aman focuses on the repair and overhaul of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, as well as engine parts, used by private airlines in India and by helicopter operators. "We travel to the location of the helicopter where it is operating in order to service it," explains Rajendra Johri, the company's managing director. The component maintenance for private aircrafts is carried out at Aman Aviation's workshop.
Aman Aviation is preparing for an expected growth in the aviation industry in India, Johri reports. The current fleet of aircraft in that country consists of 464 planes, he says, while the number is expected to reach 1,100 by 2020. "This will definitely lead to increasing the component business," Johri predicts.
Earlier this year, Aman Aviation formed a joint venture with Dolphin RFID to promote and market the use of radio frequency identification in airline operations, such as asset management, baggage tracking and maintenance management.
