James Giller (M80-86) has recently returned to the UK following 5 ½ years in the Caribbean running the British Virgin Islands Government Aviation Unit which also involved him in drug and immigrant interdiction, VIP transportation and search and rescue operations. James is now running an aircraft maintenance operation, Phoenix Aero Engineering, from London Ashford Airport (LAA), Lydd, Kent. They cover all aspects of aircraft maintenance on light piston singles and twins, expanding to turbo prop and jet in the near future. They obtained EASA 145 approval in January 2007.
Following the success of the first Lydd Air Show last year, we are now finalising plans for the second bigger and better air show taking place on the 1st and 2nd September 2007. Not to be missed for the spotters amongst you ! It would be a pleasure to see any OF’s fly into Lydd – come and say hello. You may contact James via the Lydd Airport Website.
