Kent-based Oriens Aviation is one of the rising stars of the British business aviation scene, buoyed by a strong 2017 and the launch of its new MRO business. Airliner World’s James Ronayne reports.
ORIENS AVIATION has cemented its position as the UK’s one-stop shop for Pilatus owners by opening a new MRO facility at Biggin Hill. Having undergone a significant refurbishment and welcomed several new staff, the facility will provide maintenance support for UK-based PC-12 turboprop aircraft. The company, which is the exclusive Pilatus distributor for the British Isles, formally launched the MRO at an event attended by 130 guests.
