Oriens Aviation has formally inaugurated its new MRO facility at London Biggin Hill Airport in the UK, named Oriens Maintenance Services.

Edwin Brenninkmeyer, founder and CEO of Oriens Aviation, said, “Avalon Aero’s facility at London Biggin Hill Airport became available for purchase at exactly the right time to facilitate Oriens’s expansion.

“It reinforces our company’s commitment to the world’s best-selling single-engined turboprop, complementing our sales activity with AOC and pilot training advisory, MRO and warranty work.

“Looking to the future is why we have chosen London Biggin Hill as our location. It is the closest business aviation airport to London with full IFR facilities, customs and extended opening hours, [and] the lowest aeronautical fees for the abundance of services provided.

“Furthermore, Biggin Hill is specifically targeting new business aviation activity. It can only be hugely advantageous for us to be based at a thriving, expanding business aviation hub – right where all the action is.”

Oriens Aviation is the exclusive British Isles Pilatus Centre. PC-12 movements at London Biggin Hill grew by 17% in 2017 to 400 movements across 85 different tail numbers, according to analysis by WINGX.
