Oriens Aviation, the exclusive British Isles Pilatus Centre, has reinforced its commitment to the Pilatus PC-12 and the growing SET commercial operations’ market in Europe by acquiring Avalon Aero’s business aviation MRO facility at London Biggin Hill Airport.
The business will be formally renamed and inaugurated as Oriens Aviation Limited effective immediately, with a view to becoming the principal authorised PC-12 Service Centre in the UK by 29th January, 2018. (Oriens’ activity extends to an agreement with Goodwood Engineering, who will act as a satellite service centre). Oriens will also have the expertise, as a result of the acquisition, to support other aircraft types for all line and base maintenance activity. These include Cessna 421/550/551/560, Hawker Beechcraft BAE 125 Series 1000 and Piaggio P180 Avanti.
