Malaysia's Aerospace Industry

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

Malaysia has world-class infrastructure and is strategically located in the largest air travel market, making it a cost-effective location for aerospace projects.

The Malaysian government considers the industry a catalytic high-value industry under its 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) and beyond and has implemented the Malaysian Aerospace Industry Blueprint 2030 (MAIB 2030) to drive industry growth.

With the Asia-Pacific region accounting for 39% of global deliveries of passenger and freight planes over the next decade and 40% of aerospace industry growth coming from the region, the industry's future is in Asia.

Malaysia Aerospace Industry Occupational Framework

The Department of Skills Development (JPK) and the National Aerospace Industry Coordinating Office (NAICO) in Malaysia have collaborated to develop an Occupational Framework (OF) for the Aerospace Industry.

NAICO, as an Industry Lead Body appointed by JPK, is responsible for guiding the development of the Aerospace Industry's human capital regarding skills training.

The OF is used to identify the work scope of the occupational areas in terms of competencies, and this information is used to develop relevant National Occupational Skills Standards (NOSS).

The NOSS is then used as the basis to conduct skills training and certification of competent personnel.

The development of the OF involved qualitative analysis through brainstorming discussions and industry surveys, and the findings were translated into the Occupational Structure, Occupational Description, and Skills in Demand.

The recommendation is for developing the NOSS for certain job areas in demand, which will serve as a reference for skills standards for certification and a guide for skills training curriculum development to align with industry requirements.
