Situated close to London Heathrow airport, the company specializes in Boeing aircraft types.

As a Designated Engineering Representative (DER) of the US Federal Aviation Authority, the company is authorized to develop its own repair methods. The company has its own Aircraft on Ground (AOG) team on call ready to assist customers on-site. Over 40,000 spare parts are available at any time, either individually or in complete sets.
