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, through 50 hour checks, and structural repairs, to Annual Inspections. Call James to schedule. Simple 50 hour checks and defects can be undertaken whilst you wait (or try lunch in the restaurant) providing they are scheduled in advance.

Our application for maintenance approval for non EASA types, called Annex 2 ( Historic) Aircraft has just been approved.

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 many components from hoses and magnetos to cylinders.

We undertake a wide range of avionic repairs, modifications and new installations, again using our own in house Avionic Engineer who specialises in General Aviation Aircraft. if you need an avioinc annual, 3 year check or have been living with a noisy intercom, erratic glidescope, or irratating defect please contact George, he will be pleased to help.

We also offer a range of specialised services, including pre buy inspections ( particulalry TB20 &TBM750/850), aircraft accident recovery, and Permit to Fly if your aircraft is out of annual and needs to fly to an Airfield where the maintenance work can be carried out. We can also help you transfer your aircraft from the FAA or non UK Registry to the UK, it simplifies maintainence in the long term, and avoids the impending EASA licence restrictions. Contact Graham or James for pre buy and Humphrey for Permit to fly and Aircraft transfers.

I am delighted to be able to let everyone know that Marcus Palmer, our CFI is recovering well and is expected to be able to resume flying in August. If you need to renew your EASA licence please let Christine know well in advance. NPPL licences can be renewed by Humphrey.

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.
