    <p>BRENDAN SOBIE / SINGAPORE</p> <p>Philippine maintenance company Asian Aerospace will begin Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules overhauls next month as part of the company's plans to double capacity over the next three years.</p> <p>Asian Aerospace began preparing to add C-130 maintenance capabilities in 2001, following an agreement with Lockheed Martin and the Philippine air force that included the sale of four used C-130Ks.

    <p>There are major plans afoot to regenerate the former Clark air base</p> <p>A consortium led by UK consultancy Mace has big plans for Clark International Airport, and is embarking on a major construction project to set up an $850million aircraft maintenance and training facility. It recently signed a 25-year lease agreement with the Clark Development Corporation.</p> <p>Clark is a former US air base, which was vacated in 1991, and is around 80km (50 miles) north of Manila. Clark Air Base was once the largest US military installation outside the USA, and home to the 13th Air Force and 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing. In 1993, two years after the departure of US forces, the vast base was declared a "special economic zone" in a bid to encourage industrial development in the area. The Clark Development Corporation was established to administer the site.</p> <p>The first phase of the Mace project involves the construction of four 36,000m2 (390,000ft2) hangars over the next two to three yearshttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Tiger-awakes-MRO-ambition-146194/
