AIROD is a Malaysian aerospace company engaged in providing aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services. The name "AIROD" is an acronym that stands for "Aircraft Inspection, Repair & Overhaul Depot". It was established in 1976 as the only in-country facility to support the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) aircraft.

In 1985, AIROD was privatised as a joint-venture company between Malaysia's National Aerospace & Defence Industries Bhd (NADI) and Lockheed Aircraft Systems International (LASI) of the USA.

Today, AIROD is a fully Malaysian-owned company under the NADI group of companies and is a leading MRO facility providing services to regional and global customers in the southeast Asian region.

Facility[edit]

AIROD's multimillion-dollar MRO facility is located at the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah (SAAS) Airport Complex at Subang, northwest of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia's capital city, where it occupies a 77.4-acre (313,000 m2) site on the northeastern side of the runway. The facility includes both narrow- and wide-body aircraft hangars, a paint and strip hangar, support shops, and engine test cells. In January 2005, a partnership agreement was established between AIROD Malaysia and AAR Corporation to establish a regional MRO centre for landing gears in Subang.
