Cardiff Aviation, the aircraft maintenance and training business located in South Wales, has announced it is changing its name to Caerdav, effective immediately.
The company says that the name change reflects the company’s commitment to more closely integrating its training and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) arms. The move comes as the business plans to launch a new range of training and maintenance support services. Caerdav aims to soon introduce a dedicated line maintenance team and cabin crew attestation, expanding the company’s training capability to beyond the cockpit.
Caerdav’s name has been officially unveiled by Chairman Bruce Dickinson (L) and CEO Joachim Jones (R).]
Joachim Jones, CEO, Caerdav, says: “Our new name, Caerdav, reflects our global ambition and growth plans. Since January, the company has undergone a substantial reconfiguring of operations which has seen us attract repeat business from TUI Airways and secure FAA approvals. Our future looks very bright indeed, and we’re excited to face it with a new identity.”
Bruce Dickinson, Chairman, Caerdav, added: “It was a real moment of pride to found the business in 2012, and I can’t thank our engineers and instructors enough for their incredible work and commitment to date. Together with our management team, they make Caerdav a truly independent centre of excellence for aviation engineering and training.”
Caerdav’s training centre incorporates two B747 full-motion simulators and an S-61 helicopter simulator.
