The airport can also expect to see a continued growth in business aviation traffic over the next 5 to 10 years as the county’s’ economy grows & it is for this that we at Mainstream Aviation are investing & concentrating our efforts.

“With this in mind we have been looking at upgrading our staff training to an internationally recognised certificated level, improving our customer support services & our competitiveness.

“I invited business aviation ground support specialist, Global FBO Consult, to review all aspects of our operation & as a result I believe Mainstream Aviation is now a more efficient & customer centric operation ready to deliver our clients a world class service”
