HAECO Advertisement  (Abbas Ali Collection)

Hong Kong Aircraft Engineering Co. Ltd. (HAECO) advertisement from 1977 showing a PIA McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 at HAECO facility at Hong Kong International Airport, Kai Tak, Hong Kong. The advertisement reads:

"A first for HAECO. A first-class job for PIA.

To comply with recently introduced international safety requirements, all DC-10 operators some time ago began to schedule their aircraft for incorporation of the necessary cabin side wall venting modification SB-53-93 (revision 2). One of these operators, Pakistan International, asked us to advise them of our capability, and to tender our cost estimates.

We got the job. We took on the modification, as well as 15 service bulletins and the complete repainting of the aircraft. And we finished the work inside the very tight contracted downtime, to PIA's total satisfaction.

In doing so, we proved yet again what an increasing number of operators are finding out to their advantage. Namely that we provide facilities and capabilities that can be matched by very few companies in the world - at competitive rates that can be matched by hardly any company in the world.

If you're scheduling wide bodied aircraft for incorporation of the venting modification, take a leaf out of PIA's book. And get in touch with us first."
