We maintain, overhaul, and undertake complex repairs on most General Aviation Aircraft below 5700Kg that are not used for Commercial Air Transport and which have an EASA approved type certificate. This ranges from simple ad hoc defect rectification, 50 hour checks, complex structural repairs, to Annual Inspections.

We have recently secured CAA approvalan to maintain non EASA types, called Annex 2 ( Historic) Aircraft.

We also maintain a wide range of FAA or “N” registered American Aircraft and have our own in house FAA approved IA.

We also repair and overhaul mainy components from hoses and magnetos to cylinders.

We undertake avionic repairs, modifications and new installations, again using our own in house Avionic Engineer

New C42 Microlight

The Sandtoft Flying School C42 has finally arrived at the distributers in the UK and is being fitted with its avionic equipment. It will have a full glass panel with backup analogue instruments, a Mode S Transponder and 8.3Khz Com. It is fitted with a ballistic parachute recovery system and uses Mogas.

Virtually unstallable and with a very low approach speed it will be an ideal learner platform. We will offer Microlight rental immediately and shortly afterwards Microlight training.

New Base at Sandtoft

We have opened a new base for aircraft maintenance at Sandtoft, which with its 4000' long tarmac runway will allow us to service faster aircraft.

Extended Approvals

The CAA have recently extended our BCAR approval to cover any single engine metal or wood Annex 2 Aircraft upto 5700Kg. This includes Light Sport aircraft, an application has been submitted for Microlight Group. This together with our Approval to issue National permits and Certificates of Validity means that we will be able to fully support all light aircraft from the smallest microlight upto Pressurised Piper P31P, Turbine TBM 750/850 and even Eclipse Jets ( latter N register only).

Flying Training at Sandtoft

We are working on out ATO approval, which will be extended to cover new capabilities.
