PODCAST 3: MRO and sustainable aviation fuels

This week, the podcast looks at the drive for MRO in Africa to be ready for the new world after Covid-19 abates.

MRO editor Chuck Grieve talks to AJW’s Hafsa Abdul Salman about her view on the challenge for the sector.

 
Joshua Kitetu (photographed); an aircraft engineering lecturer from the Dubai campus of South Wales University explains to Alan Peaford why now is the time to be getting policy together for a push for more alternative sustainable aviation fuels.
 
The aircraft interiors business has gone quiet but Dubai manufacturer Sabeti-Wain has found a diversion that has kept their machinists in the UK busy – manuafacturing medical protective goods for frontline workers in the health industry fighting the battle with Covid-19. We talk to the CEO of the company about the health effort, about Dubai and USA facilities and about where he sees the future after the virus has been beaten.
 
Also there is round-up of the news stories from around the Africa and Middle East region.
