Signature TechnicAir, the MRO division of Signature Flight Support, has expanded its maintenance support network in Europe with the addition of a new line station and mobile service unit location at Farnborough airport in the UK.
Farnborough has become one of the UK's busiest business and general aviation airports and serves as a gateway to the nation's capital. The expansion of TechnicAir's presence to include the airport ensures based and transient operators will have access to consistent and reliable aircraft line maintenance, seven days a week.
TechnicAir's Farnborough-based technicians are capable of performing minor aircraft maintenance, clearing defect lists and preventative checks, as well as performing oxygen and nitrogen service. Furthermore, extensively equipped mobile service units expand the geographic coverage of the Farnborough base to include Southampton and the Midlands, enabling both proactive aircraft maintenance and AOG troubleshooting and repair.
The new location at Farnborough complements Signature's existing holdings throughout the UK, including its primary service centre at Bournemouth airport, which specialises in Cessna Citation, Embraer and Hawker aircraft models. This is further supplemented by additional line station and mobile service teams based at London Biggin Hill airport, London Luton airport and Manchester airport.
“With eight fully equipped mobile service vans, 15 dedicated engineers and operating from five UK airports, we offer unrivalled AOG and line maintenance assistance to business and general aviation,” says Andy Preston, managing director of Signature TechnicAir EMEA. “Our scale, mobility and expansive capabilities have led hundreds of European-based and transient operators to trust TechnicAir to address their aircraft maintenance needs.”
“We are pleased to welcome Signature TechnicAir to Farnborough Airport," adds Richard Wittels, business development manager of Farnborough airport. “Its offering will certainly enhance the excellent maintenance services already onsite.”
