ABOUT US

 

Thurston Aviation began trading in 1992 providing engineering and maintenance management support to several maintenance companies and commercial executive jet operators. In 2014 a rapid expansion of the company occurred allowing us to establish a permanent base and grow to become one of the largest independent Executive Jet maintenance / CAMO facilities in the United Kingdom.


The company is based in a 35,100 Sq. Ft (3260 Sq M) facility at Bournemouth Airport (EGHH) to support our based and contracted aircraft. We currently provide support to a varied fleet of thirty eight managed aircraft including Jets, Turboprops and Helicopters.


We also provide support to many operators and owners when their aircraft visit the United Kingdom from their home bases in the Middle East, Asia and North America.



Thurston Aviation has a reputation for a whatever it takes attitude with a personal service tailored around the operator’s requirements.
