SIA Engineering has entered a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Honeywell to licence repair capability for the Air Data Inertial Reference Unit (ADIRU) on Boeing 737 and 787 aircraft, the Singapore-listed company said in a filing to SGX Wednesday.

The ADIRU is a proprietary component on those aircraft models for providing data on airspeed, altitude and other inputs to pilots’ displays and other systems, as well as providing critical navigation data for the pilot, the filing said.

The 10-year agreement covers the repair and overhaul of the ADIRU and a parts supply agreement to support the repairs, the filing said.

“This is an important repair capability development to add to the recently announced new Component Services Division at SIAEC,” Ng Chin Hwee, SIA Engineering’s CEO, said in the statement.

SIA Engineering provides aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services in the Asia-Pacific region. The company provides line maintenance services at more than 25 airports across seven countries, and offers airframe and component services on commercial aircraft.
