About Us

Swiftair Maintenance Limited currently holds an BCAR M3  approval, EASA Part M Sub part F and EASA Part M Sub part G (with I privelages) Approval's at Leicester.
 
We will continue to hold the M3 approval for Annexe 2 aircraft whilst developing the facility in-line with new EASA requirements.
 
Any visitor will immediately see improvements in the facility which reflects our long term vision and enthusiasm for general aviation. We have comprehensive experience and Licence coverage in modern designs of aircraft, as well as the more traditional types. Be it aluminium, steel, wood or composite we already have a good cross section of customers spanning these areas of design.

So who are we...

Well, Andrew Booth & Mark Davies are both licensed engineers and are directors of "Swiftair Maintenance Ltd". We have approximately  40 yrs of aircraft maintenance experience between us ranging from PFA inspection & build projects, civilian flying & gliding clubs/schools with M3 & Part 145 approvals through to military aircraft and operational contracts.  
 
Both Mark and Andrew also hold PPL's with various ratings and enjoy flying in their spare time whenever they can!
 
Mark started his flying whilst in the Air Cadets and after joining the RAF as an engineer continued Gliding, gaining a Gold badge and 2 Diamonds spread over 500 hours of flying without AVGAS.  Mark spent 12 years in the RAF working on types as diverse as the Tornado F3 right down to gliders and motor gliders.  Gaining his PPL in 1997 he soon moved from glider aerobatics in his Lo100 to flying a Pitts Special, in which he now has over 250 hours, a member of the British Aerobatic Association (BAeA) he also enjoys flying aerobatic competitions and is currently building a DR107 One Design.  After leaving the RAF Mark worked the next 6 years for the UK agents for Grob Aerospace gaining much experience on new composite types.  During this time he gained his BCAR license and spent 2 years running an M3 maintenance approval as Chief Engineer  before joining with Andrew to start Swiftair Maintenance Ltd.
 
Also an Air Cadet, Andrew went on to join an M3 maintenance organisation, gaining sufficient experience on most types of light aircraft to gain BCAR Engineering license group type ratings in the early 90’s. His journey has taken him to GA flying schools and airfields, where considerable experience in aircraft and airfield operations was gained as well as a PPL!
In 1996 he joined the Joint Elementary Flying Training School [JEFTS] at RAF Barkston Heath, operating the Slingsby Firefly, providing Elementary Flying Training for the 3 services. Whilst here composite type ratings were added to his license.  Promotion to Maintenance Manager gave responsibility for up to 45 aircraft operating from 4 UK sites, each a JAR 145 approved maintenance facility. Wanting to utilise his license coverage more fully he teamed up with Mark in 2007 forming Swiftair Maintenance Ltd.
