ARINC Aerospace reaches key milestones in Indonesia C-130B project

ARINC Incorporated announced Sept. 10 that it is aggressively moving forward on completing its contract to modernize†five C-130B transport aircraft for the Indonesian Air Force. The program, which began in the first quarter of 2011, is moving along as budgeted and scheduled.

Under the contract, ARINC is helping the Indonesian government modernize their C-130B fleet for humanitarian purposes. The program includes structural and electronic modifications to retrofit the legacy C-130B airframes with more recent capability and technology.

The ARINC team has reached a major milestone in the project with the completed export of over 1000 parts necessary for the modernization. The parts, which include five complete outer wing sets, five auxiliary power units and environmental control systems and an avionics modification, needed to be exported from the US to the modification facility in Bandung, Indonesia, which required ARINCís significant logistical skills and knowledge.

ARINC is performing the work half way around the world from its Aerospace Division based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, enabling the Indonesian Air Force to get the benefit of its extensive aerospace expertise without having to bear the cost and logistical issues associated with transporting the aircraft.

ARINC Aerospace is uniquely qualified to perform this type of work,î noted Michael Young, Vice President of ARINC Aerospace. ìWe have far-reaching experience on multiple platforms and a broad range of capabilities. We are pleased that the project is going so well and that we are growing closer to the goal of enhancing the capabilities of the Indonesian Air Force.
