Avia Solutions buys London Biggin Hill base

Avia Solutions Group has acquired Biggin Hill Hangar Company, the owner of Hangar 510, an FBO and MRO centre of operations at London Biggin Hill Airport.

Built in 2011, Hangar 510 is a state-of-the-art Fixed Base Operations (FBO) and Maintenance Repair & Overhaul (MRO) unit at one of the UK‘s leading business aviation airports. Among its tenants are Signature Flight Support, the world’s largest FBO network, with over 200 locations worldwide, and business jet manufacturer Bombardier, which provides aircraft maintenance services at the site, 17 miles south of central London.

Vygaudas Usackas, member of the board of directors of Avia Solutions Group, said: “We are pleased to announce the acquisition of this fantastic operation, based at one of Europe’s fastest-growing business aviation airports. We look forward to working with business operators and the airport to continue delivering exceptional quality services for passengers, aircraft owners, and fleet operators landing at and departing from London Biggin Hill Airport.”  

Avia Solutions Group’s acquisition of Biggin Hill Hangar Company Limited is not its first investment in the airport’s burgeoning business ecosystem. In March 2021, Avia Solutions Group subsidiary Jet MS acquired RAS Group, a long-established aircraft interior, exterior, and completions specialist based at the airport. 

The transaction also strengthens the Group’s presence in the UK’s aviation services market. In August 2021, subsidiary Storm Aviation acquired Manchester-based Chevron Technical Services and its Prestwick-based subsidiary Chevron Aircraft Maintenance, which provide aerospace solutions to the commercial aircraft maintenance industry.

Avia Solutions Group’s services to clients include aircraft leasing and trading, MRO services, business aviation and VIP airline procurement, charter and cargo aviation, pilot and crew training, and recruitment services.
