Newly Restructured PremiAir Aviation International to Debut at Helitech International 2013

The result is a lean, debt free business, focused on one operational base at Blackbushe Airport in Surrey, an AOC and a team of 60 engineers, technicians, design specialists, admin and sales executives - all eager to rebuild the business.

PremiAir’s Blackbushe facility has traditionally been one of the world’s largest and most capable helicopter maintenance and engineering centres, at one point supporting a fleet of nearly 30 aircraft. Accordingly, the company is keen to re-establish a strong engineering business.  During the restructure PremiAir Aviation Services acquired a new EASA Part 145 authorisation, enabling line and base maintenance for helicopter types including Bell, Sikorsky and Eurocopter to be undertaken.  The company has retained its Part M approval and has also received EASA Part 21J approval for design and modification work on all aircraft.  Part 21G has been re-submitted under new post holder Trevor Jenkins, a highly regarded aviation professional in this sector and  PremiAir hopes to achieve this shortly. To this end PremiAir is actively recruiting to add more licensed engineers.  It is also continuing with its pilot training and pilot provision for Police Air Support Units. 

PremiAir will acquire its own twin engined helicopters

PremiAir’s expertise is in the operation of twin turbine IFR helicopters and the company intends to build up a managed fleet of helicopters it will both maintain and offer for third party charter.  It is in the market to acquire pre-owned machines and accordingly is looking forward to renewing contacts with the OEMs at Helitech.
