Turner Aviation Services
Our main objective is to provide each customer with the best possible value for money through the attainment of reliable unit performance and maximisation of unit TBO. This dedication to engineering excellence, coupled with our short turnaround times, enables our customers to reduce their spares inventory wherever possible.
We pride ourselves on our service levels - we provide a detailed quotation and condition report for every job. We produce regular status reports and business summary reports for all our customers, which allows performance analysis on turnaround time, average prices and price per flying hour on all unit types.
Our Rotable Support department provides a One-Stop Shop Service to sub-contract, manage and control the repair of components outside of our in-house capability.
We provide this service on a contractual basis to cover all Aircraft Rotables as well as ad-hoc support where the Customer cannot easily source a vendor.

Turner Aviation continues to meet the requirements of an ever more demanding market by investment and review of our key processes. We have invested well over £1m in the past few years in upgraded facilities and new capability. We have fully overhauled our shop floor processing around lean principles to enable us to improve on our already World Class turnaround times. We invest heavily in part and unit exchange stock to ensure that any delays due to parts shortages are minimised.
