Our service mix

Base maintenance

‘Base’ refers to the planned maintenance required by the aircraft manufacturer / component supplier. This work is complex, highly regulated and location specific, requiring investment in tooling and training. Our centres of excellence cover a range of aircraft including business jets, helicopters, turbo-prop and piston engine aircraft. Services are provided on a fee or contract basis.

Line maintenance

Our line solutions assist owners with irregular maintenance activities, component failure or simple wear & tear. Depending on the fault this may be sufficient to ground the aircraft. For private clients, this can be an inconvenience; for military or air ambulance clients, the aircraft’s re-entry into service is time critical. Services are provided on a fee or contract basis.

Design & modifications

Our design & modifications team provides outsource solutions to civilian & military aircraft owners to increase the operating life of an aircraft. Typical services include: avionics updates, role/ mission changes, cockpit upgrades, etc. Services are provided on a fee or contract basis.

Fixed base operations (FBO)

Our FBO‘s provide infrastructure at airports that are underserved with business / special mission facilities. The business has three dedicated FBOs; Glasgow, Aberdeen, Jersey and Sharjah catering for parking, hangarage, line maintenance and other related ground handling tasks such as the fuelling of aircraft, etc. Services are provided on a fee basis.
