“We are delighted to broaden our expertise on the Pilatus Aircraft family – and become the Williams approved service station for the FJ44 engine serving the Pilatus PC-24 in the UK,” said Edwin Brenninkmeyer, Oriens Aviation CEO, applauding his team in securing these important milestones, in the midst of the pandemic. “It is timely too, as we mark our third anniversary at our newest Biggin Hill home,” he added.
Since the launch of its maintenance facilities in 2018, Oriens has doubled its workforce and made significant investment in training and tooling.
The business has kept open to support essential MRO during the first, second and ongoing lockdown in the UK. “We are pleased to have offered continued seamless support for our new and existing clients,” noted Oriens Aviation maintenance general manager Stuart Locke.
“Sales interest in the PC-12 NGX and the PC-24 jet from potential UK and Ireland customers has not abated either,” commented Edwin. Oriens has sold all of its new Pilatus aircraft positions for 2021. However, customers can still secure new PC-12 NGX and PC-24 positions for delivery in 2022.
