About us

Airbourne Solutions is a family run business providing Helicopter Lifting Solutions across the UK. We also have one of the most extensive aerial support networks in the UK. The diversity of the aerial work we carry out is staggering, from Aerial Lifting to completely bespoke aerial solutions that can be as diverse as testing military equipment to refitting helicopters to accommodate the Rocket Man for BBC’s Top Gear Show.

Founded by Tom Clark in 1986, we have a great team of full time staff, ground and maintenance crews located across key centres in the UK and Europe and highly skilled engineers.

Based on the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire border, we have our own purpose built EASA PART 145 and PART M approved maintenance company which provides the ideal base for working the length and breadth of the UK. Our location allows easy access to all major road routes throughout the country, thus resulting in a quick response time for our support vehicles when required.

We have access to bases in both Wales and Scotland in order to carry our extensive work for a range of companies where remote access requires our team to be on hand. We have also worked in a range of European locations such as France, Spain and Portugal.
