Aerocare invests in cabin refurbishment capabilities


Aerocare Aviation Services has invested in expanding its capabilities and workshop space at its MRO facilities in Chester, UK.

The company said the move was to support its continued growth in the business jet market and its planned diversification into commercial aviation.

As an established Part 145 provider, the investment will bolster Aerocare’s core MRO and paint shop facilities with new ‘C’ rating workshop space and tooling. The new capabilities will enable the company to deliver full turnkey solutions for complete cabin refurbishments, component structural repairs and manufacturing from its hangars at Hawarden Airport.

“Having recently invested in widening our hangar doors to accommodate larger aircraft, the next logical step was to extend our in-house back-shop capabilities to provide a genuine ‘one-stop-shop’ service to customers,” said Peter Mankelow, managing director at Aerocare. “With ambitions to expand on our current business jet portfolio to work with commercial operators, we needed to develop the facilities at Hawarden. With a skilled and dedicated team already in place, we’re excited to build on our growing reputation for quality maintenance, upgrades, paint and interior work.”

The development of Aerocare’s facilities will enable the company to serve a wider client base, with the new C ratings covering interiors; structures; doors and hatches; flying controls; as well as Part 21 subpart G approval for the production of components and systems.

Working alongside carefully selected design organisations, Aerocare can provide a fully bespoke service to each customer, working to enhance both the interior and exterior look of their aircraft, from concept drawing to certification and installation.

Aerocare will be attending the Air Charter Expo (ACE) at London Biggin Hill on 12 September 2023.
