NFO NASIONAL- Chairman of the MPR RI and Head of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Law Enforcement, Security and Defense Relations Agency Bambang Soesatyo together with Commissioner of PT Bandara Internasional Jawa Barat (BIJB) Yayat Hidayat and BIJB President Director Muhammad Singgih signed a Head of Agreement between BIJB managers and PT ACN Aero Teknik. Through the cooperation agreement, PT ACN Aero Teknik will build Kertajati Aircraft Maintenance in the BIJB area and Kertajati One Stop Experience Facility at the BIJB terminal.

Develop BIJB to be more alive, as well as provide added economic value, both in opening employment opportunities and other economic multiplier effects, for West Java and Indonesia in general. At the same time, maximizing the various potentials that exist in BIJB so that it does not "delay", because the construction is carried out using public money. So it can't be wasted.

Kertajati Aircraft Maintenance is the first Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) hangar at BIJB. It was built on an area of 9 hectares with an investment of US$10 million or around Rp. 150 billion. The first phase of construction is carried out on an area of 4 hectares this year. The second phase will be continued with an area of 5 ha in 2023. Soil test for the soil bearing capacity test for the construction of phase 1 is being carried out.

It is targeted that construction will be completed in the next eight months. After the construction of phase 1 and phase 2 is completed in 2023, Kertajati Aircraft Maintenance can serve MRO to dozens of aircraft every month," said Bamsoet after witnessing the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between PT ACN Aero Teknik and BIJB, at BIJB, Kertajati, Majalengka, Thursday 3 March 2022.

Also attending were Director General of Civil Aviation Novie Riyanto representing the Minister of Transportation Budi Karya, Group CEO Asia Cargo Network Marco Isaak, Commissioner of PT BIJB Yayat Hidayat, President Director of PT BIJB Muhammad Singgih, Director of PT ACN Aero Teknik Fuad Bafana. Also present were national entrepreneurs from the Metland Group, Hariyanto, who will build a Hajj Dormitory with various facilities on a 50 ha land in the Kertajati International Airport area.

The chairman of the 20th DPR RI explained that the presence of Kertajati Aircraft Maintenance made Indonesia more sovereign in aerospace matters, especially in the MRO field. Currently, around 46 percent of aircraft operating in Indonesia are still carrying out maintenance abroad, such as Malaysia and Singapore. In addition to requiring more expensive financing, it also causes the circulation of money to be abroad. Not enjoyed by Indonesia.


The presence of Kertajati Aircraft Maintenance will make the transformation of Indonesian aviation and aerospace information technology grow rapidly. Opened more than 300 new job opportunities, ranging from professional workers such as engineers to administrative technical workers. “His presence will also give Indonesian aviation and aerospace engineers a place to put their knowledge into practice. So they don't have to work abroad," said Bamsoet, who is also the former chairman of Commission III of the DPR.

The Deputy Chairperson of the Golkar Party also explained that the Asia Cargo Network, which houses PT ACN Aero Teknik, had also made many efforts to revive BIJB. On December 21, 2021, for example, Asia Cargo Airlines and Black Stone Cargo Airline became the first cargo flights to operate at BIJB, after BIJB's operations had stopped due to the Covid-19 pandemic since March 2021.

Until now, there are about two flights per day, consisting of one outgoing flight and one incoming flight, five days a week. So that the total monthly flights reach 40 flights, consisting of 20 outgoing flights and 20 incoming flights, with an average payload of 500 tons per month. "In addition to supporting airport activities, it has also supported airport operations so that workers do not need to be laid off," said the Deputy Chairperson of FKPPI and Deputy Chairperson of Pemuda Pancasila.

Local ESI Passed Certification
.
On March 17 yesterday, a local Electronic Standby Instrument (ESI) named IESD made by Infoglobal successfully passed the Puslaikmbangja certification test. This achievement is very meaningful considering that the avionics has been undergoing development since August 2021. The flight test which was held at Husein Sastranegara Air Base was the umpteenth time testing and was part of a series of IESD prototype tests in order to obtain a feasibility certificate from Puslaikmbangja.
.
After this test, it is hoped that this year the IESD will be released to support the operational readiness of the CN-295 aircraft operated by the 2nd Air Squadron and to increase the capability of the domestic industry to support the TNI-AU's defense systems.
--------
IESD is an avionics instrument that functions as a backup, especially 3 important displays on the cockpit of the CN-295 aircraft, namely the airspeed indicator, altimeter, and artificial horizon. In the circulating photos, you can more or less read (although there are some that are not clearly legible) airspeed 171 knots, altitude around 10,100 feet with QNH 100x hPa / 29.77 inHg.

Indonesia tycoon to top up Garuda's capital after restructuring​

JAKARTA, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Billionaire Indonesian businessman Chairul Tanjung said on Tuesday he will lift his investment in struggling flag carrier Garuda Indonesia (GIAA.JK) after the airline completes a court-led debt restructuring.

The announcement came as the government asked prosecutors to begin a graft investigation into some of Garuda's plane leasing contracts.

Garuda, which has been battered by the plunge in air travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, is undergoing a court-led debt restructuring over unpaid liabilities.

"We hope the (court) process will be finished soon," Tanjung told a news conference broadcast by one of his media outlets.

"Once it's done, our plan is to increase capital to strengthen (Garuda)," he said, without elaborating.

The businessman is Garuda's second-biggest shareholder after the government, holding a 28.3% stake through PT Trans Airways.

Garuda said it has total outstanding liabilities of $9.8 billion. State news agency Antara reported the court had received $13.8 billion of claims that it will verify by Jan. 19.

Separately, state-owned enterprises minister, Erick Thohir, on Tuesday brought to the Attorney General's Office audit documents that he said indicated wrongdoing in Garuda's lease contracts for ATR 72-600 planes.

"We know based on valid data that in the procurement process for airplanes, leasing, there are corruption indications with various brands," Erick said.

Garuda said in a statement it will support the investigation process. The airline has 13 ATR 72-600 planes.

The Franco-Italian turboprop maker ATR did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Garuda has previously been embroiled in several graft scandals. In November 2020, the UK Serious Fraud Office announced an investigation into Canada's Bombardier over suspected bribery in sales to Garuda.

Garuda's former chief executive Emirsyah Satar was jailed for eight years in 2020 for bribery and money laundering related to the procurement of planes and engines from Airbus and Rolls-Royce.

Garuda's current executives are trying to renegotiate leasing rates with lessors in and out of court, which they say are higher than rates other airlines pay.

Erick said any probe of leasing arrangements should not affect the court process because authorities had identified lessors suspected of being embroiled in graft.

I think we have to overhaul the organization and put more young leaders to this company. Corruption in this magnitude should make the corrupt be in jailed at 20 years in minimum. Put them in the same room with 20 people convicted with crime like killing.
 
This Youtuber has accurate information about the development of UAV in Indonesia.

 
Indonesia aerospace has big chance to win the tender. It has previously converted Turkish CN 235 MPA into ASW version. Hopefully this year our SOE defense holding, Defend ID, will get significant contracts for export market. From Philippine news, PT PAL Indonesia, will likely get contract to construct 2 LPD for their Navy, and if Malaysian Airforce/Navy also choose CN 235 MPA/ASW as their choice, I would say Defend ID export sales for the year 2022 is already quite decent.

News in Malaysian respected defense blog :

Anyhow, in the Perajurit interview, Mohd Asghar Khan also said that the full report of the MPA tender will be forwarded to the Defence Ministry’s procurement committee on June 22 for a decision. In the written answers to Malaysian Defence. RMAF stated that validity period of the MPA tender has been extended to September 9, this year. The tender validity was supposed to end on June 3 (tomorrow). This will be the second time the tender’s validity is extended, the first one was done late last year, which allow it to be continued until June 3.


Here the tender that is announced in August 2020 (Covid 19 Pandemic year). Many acquisition in many countries are delayed due to economic condition of those countries.

The notice was issued via a notice published in the country’s daily newspapers, Berita Harian and the New Straits Times on 25 August. It was also sent to the embassies of selected countries on the day after.

On the same dates, MINDEF also issued a separate tender notice seeking three medium altitude long endurance (MALE) unmanned aerial system (UAS) units. However, the intended operator for the UAS units was not specified in the notice.

The RMAF currently operates a fleet of three ageing Beechcraft King Air B200T surveillance aircraft to monitor the country’s maritime territories. The fleet size of this aircraft type was originally four-strong, but a single airframe was lost in a 2016 crash that claimed the life of a crew member.

Malaysia has been actively studying options for new MPAs since at least 2017. During his presentation at a maritime security conference in Singapore in December 2017, the RMAF’s then Head of Staff for Air Region 1 Headquarters, Brigadier General Yazid Bin Arshad, showed a title slide with images of aircraft types that the service has shortlisted for its requirements.

He stopped short of naming them, but among the aircraft types depicted on the slide include the Airbus CN295, the ATR 72MP from Leonardo, and the CN-235, which could possibly be supplied by Indonesia’s PT Dirgantara Indonesia.
