Steve is our resident maintenance / service and in-house senior NMAI inspector. He appreciates all types of microlights as he has rebuilt many weightshifts from the ground up as well as repaired/ re-covered many many aircraft (including Ikarus C42s).
He is trained to iRMT (Independent Rotax Heavy Maintenance Technician) standards through CFS Aerospace and has climbed through the ranks within the NMAI to senior inspector. You’ll normally see Steve working happily under an aircraft or stuck in an engine bay to keep a client in the air whilst others are out flying.
He has a passion for all types of aircraft from weightshifts, to older classic types (eg. TST Thrusters etc) to the latest and greatest carbon fibre and composite hot-ship machines. As well as engine/ airframe repairs and service Steve is a qualified Electrical/Electronics & Mechatronic engineer so has found himself also getting more and more involved with avionics repairs & installations over the past few years.
If you’ve any queries or questions don’t hesitate to give him a call.
