London Biggin Hill-based aviation services provider Oriens Aviation has received authorization to provide third-party maintenance, repair, and overhaul on Cirrus SR-series piston singles. As a result, Oriens is expanding its presence at Biggin Hill to accommodate the type.
Several Oriens technicians have completed factory training on Cirrus SR-series airplanes—the SR20 and SR22—and the company is committing further investment to equipment and tools for the types. “We are delighted to become a Cirrus SR2X Partner,” said Oriens general manager for maintenance Stuart Locke. “The Cirrus is a fantastic aircraft and a great brand in personal aviation, testament to its excellent sales performance. We look forward to working with the team in Europe, supporting UK and European owners.”
Oriens’s location is expected to complement other Cirrus-authorized MROs in Gloucestershire and Leeds, UK, as well as in Guernsey. The company also is an exclusive distributor of Pilatus and Tecnam aircraft.
