Located across the runway from the SOFEX site and exhibiting in the national pavilion (Hall 5, Stand B536), the Jordan Aeronautical-Systems Company (JAC) was established as a joint venture between the Royal Jordanian Air Force and Marshall of Cambridge Ltd. Drawing on the UK company’s expertise with the Hercules, Marshall Jordan was initially established to provide maintenance for the RJAF’s C-130 fl eet, as well as to compete for foreign business.
Today JAC is wholly owned by the RJAF, and is one of the region’s leading maintenance, repair and overhaul organisations, with FAA and EASA Pt 145 approval, as well as approvals from many national aviation authorities. Th e C-130 remains an important part of JAC’s activities, but from 2006 the company added Boeing 737 competency, and in 2012 became an approved service centre for the AW139 helicopter. It also provides maintenance services for C-130 and Boeing 737 powerplants.
