Air Works is India’s leading provider of Aviation Services and is constantly working towards building a strong platform for aviation infrastructure in India.

Founded in 1951 by Mr B G Menon and Mr P S Menon, Air Works has successfully carved out a niche for itself as India’s largest independent general aviation and MRO Company. As a private company with a fiercely independent outlook, Air Works has business interest in General Aviation MRO; Commercial Aviation MRO; and Sales, Charter and Operations.

Considered as India’s Gold Standard, Air Works General Aviation MRO is the largest in India with over 60% market share. Starting with the maintenance and overhaul work on a few DC-3s in the early 1950s, Air Works today, has gone on to work on an impressive number and variety of aircraft. The company currently does DGCA approved maintenance on nearly 50 aircraft and engines types including Falcon, Hawker, Cessna, Pratt & Whitney, Garrett, Rolls Royce, Honeywell, BMW and GE.

With an unblemished 57 year safety record, the number of customers and the variety of aircraft serviced by Air Works signifies the confidence which government and private operators have. Today it is the only company in India which maintains and operates aircraft of government agencies like National Airports Authority, National Remote Sensing Agency, Geological Survey of India and several State Governments along with leading private sector groups like ESSAR, Reliance, Hindustan Aluminium etc.

Extending i t s leadership in providing Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services, Air Works has also launched India’s first commercial maintenance, repair and overhaul [MRO] facility in Hosur, near Bangalore.

The company intends to support a wide variety of commercial aircraft certified to DGCA, FAA, and EASA standards.

In the past, Air Works has been involved in setting up maintenance base for Jet Airways to maintain their 737 classics for all their minor and major maintenance.

With 5 state of the art and fully equipped hangars, Air Works Commercial MRO will offer services like airframe, engine and APU maintenance; aircraft paint shop, engine repair and overhaul, passenger to freighter conversion, interior completions, avionic upgrades, aircraft component repairs and spares. After obtaining DGCA approval for the Commercial MRO, Air works plans to obtain GCAA, FAA and EASA approval for providing airframe heavy maintenance of narrow and wide body airplanes including ATR.

Nature of work at Air Works MRO will vary from routine basic maintenance to major overhauls including Check C’s of four-engine commercial airlines - no mean feat at all for a company whose strength lies in the ability to continuously innovate.

Air Works has also formed an India joint venture with Air Livery Plc UK - one of Europe’s largest paint shops, to set up India’s first dedicated paint facility for narrow and wide bodied aircraft with capability of handling aircraft up to the size of B777-300. As part of the joint venture, Air Works will provide dedicated aircraft painting services at Air Works MRO at Hosur Airport with the view to participate at other airports throughout India and the Asia Pacific region.

The facility would offer regular painting maintenance to airlines and business jets at their facility or complete tip to tail livery change. The region’s first dedicated paint facility will be equipped with a state of the art temperature humidity control and extraction system.

Purchasing or selling a sophisticated aircraft requires sophisticated representation.

As part of its Sales and Charter business, Air Works helps buyers select the right aircraft, source it, and buy or lease it at the right price. In addition, Air Works also offers its expertise in Turn Key Aircraft Management, Fixed Base Operations and Crew Sourcing.

Understanding its vision to build strong platform for aviation infrastructure in India, GTI Group LLC and Punj Lloyd have made growth equity investments in the company. With deep capital reserves, Air Works continues to add professional management, internationally trained engineers and state of the art equipment to provide industry-best support its OEM partners and exceeds its customer expectations.
