Zephyr Aviation Ltd operate a third party Be200 for Commercial Air Transport purposes and also provide Continued Airworthiness Management for the same aircraft. A requirement for an avionic upgrade to the aircraft was identified in 2013 and after assessment of various options, Garmin 1000 was selected as the preferred installation.
Notwithstanding the entirely competent engineering service which MCA Aviation Ltd have provided in respect of the aircraft over a number of years including Blackhawk engine upgrades and Raisbeck modifications, the avionic work was subject to a competitive tender process involving other long established aviation companies. The decisive factors in MCA Aviation winning the contract were:
- A demonstrable capability and understanding of the requirement
- The level of service and performance of MCA Aviation in the field of B200 Kingair maintenance over a number of years and
- A wholly reasonable and competitive commercial quote
The project was completed on time and within budget during 2014. It involved the removal of legacy avionics and the installation/commissioning of the Garmin G1000 Platinum Package. Since the installation, the system has performed reliably and MCA Aviation Ltd continues to provide comprehensive after sales support and advice.

I have based and maintained my TBM900 (and previous TBM850) aircraft under the care of MCA at Bournemouth during my annual visits to UK. The service of Malcolm and his team has been friendly and responsive, and the aircraft has always been serviceable and ready to fly when I have needed it.
John Giddens, TBM900 Owner
We have had the honor and privilege to work with the team at MCA Aviation over a span of many years. Their product knowledge, expertise, and honesty continue to make them our preferred Go To Facility whenever we are able. Thank you Malcolm and team for all of your assistance and great service !!!!!
John Eruren, West Coast Aircraft Sales
Malcolm and the team at MCA did a great job in looking after first a King Air B200 and then a 350 I owned. I admired their professional yet calm approach to aircraft maintenance and the team always kept customer service at the heart of their work.
Graeme Brooks, CEO, Avtrade
After half a dozen aircraft transactions involving MCA Aviation, I can attest that Malcolm and his team are among the best knowledgeable people in aircraft maintenance out there. MCA Aviation is a solution maker with the highest motivation for safety and client's needs. All this for an optimized and transparent cost
