Services & capabilities

Engineer inspecting aircraft wing

Our dedicated engineering team is renowned for achieving high standards. Below you can find details of the services we offer.

Hangar support

We use our hangars at London's Heathrow and Gatwick airports to maintain our own fleets for light maintenance and ad hoc inputs. We can offer you a variety of services, including scheduled maintenance checks, ad hoc and casualty work, all with the same high standards and awareness of your operational demands.

Cabin maintenance

Our cabin avionics (IFE) group comprises well-trained, professional technicians capable of maintaining inflight entertainment systems to greater than 99% seat availability. They are highly experienced in the line maintenance of Mas 2000 / 2000e / 3000, Rockwell Collins 150i and Thales M.D.D.S.

Our large cabin maintenance team is highly skilled in all aspects of cabin interior maintenance. They all hold VAE company approvals and have expert knowledge in a wide range of vendor products. They will support the upkeep of your cabin products, working to the tight deadlines demanded by the line maintenance environment.

Our cabin support team, a specialist group of technicians dedicated to more complex and time-consuming defect rectification, support the other cabin teams to enhance and raise cabin presentation standards. They are a highly motivated and responsive mobile team who carry out special repairs to the structures and materials incorporated throughout diverse cabin products.

Line maintenance

Our dedicated and professional engineering team already understands the pressures of running a successful airline and will maintain your aircraft with the same care and attention we give our own.

We have unrivalled experience on the A340-600 and on the A340-300. Add to this many years of B747 maintenance and you can see why we think we have a lot to offer.

Avionic workshop

Our CAA approved avionics workshop is staffed by highly-skilled avionics technicians who can service, overhaul, repair or modify any aircraft system components. They maintain Virgin's three IFE systems' components, including handsets, audio jacks and all cables and seat harnesses, and they also carry out full function tests of these systems. They calibrate our crimping tools and other IFE associated equipment, manufacture local and aircraft test equipment and charge Medtronic defibrillator batteries.

The workshop is also home to much test equipment, including a Panasonic system 3000 development rig.
