Dear Richard, As you know you have been maintaining and servicing my aircraft for a number of years, including two TMGs, a vintage glider, a microlight andtwo trailers. During this period I have been more than satisfied withthe service EES has provided and which is on-going.. This is to thankall concerned for their efforts and the skills they have shown on mybehalf, I look forward to maintaining our relationship in the future.
Thanks to all concerned
Peter Andrews OBE
EES turned my aircraft around efficiently on its annual despite some remedial work and an ADD. They are easy to work with and reasonably priced and in my experience will provide ongoing backup at reasonably short notice.
We chose Richard and his enthusiastic team because they understand wood and fabric aircraft. Our 52-year old Binder Smaragd has been rejuvenated with new fabric, paintwork, windscreen and canopy - and has shed quite a few kilos in the process!
I can whole heartily recommend East of England Sailplanes , my starboard wing was damaged in a ground handling Incident, and after contacting Richard I passed it to them for repair .
Despite being very busy they fitted me in on their program and repaired my wing as quickly as humanly possible.
The repair they carried out was second to none, the level of knowledge and craftsmanship that was used was above expectation plus the paint finish to my wing was like a mirror and they even resolved a minor geometry problem for me that had been plaguing me for years !!!.
All I can do is thank Richard and his team for their work and I can recommend them to anyone
I can always rely on EES to provide a very professional service for me,
I use them as my trusted advisor for all matters relating to the safe operation of my Robin DR400.
EES Aviation deserve full marks for their bespoke small-aircraft repair operation. They responded quickly when our one-and-only flying-school C42 trainer suffered a heavy landing last summer. Richard Kilham and Kevin Burns drove through the night to collect the stricken craft. She was then swiftly and skilfully repaired. The C42 was back in service a month later - excellent!
Our next next challenge for them was to repair an out-of-permit Chevvron microlight motor-glider. With a limited edition aircraft, out of production for rising two decades, this involved a great deal of desk research to source the right materials from as far afield as the States. Needless to say, the Chevvron is now back in permit and special mention must go to Kevin Burns for his patience, good humour and experience in obtaining the right materials, leading the repairs and then coaxing the best from the Koenig engine.
In all, we would have no hesitation in recommending EES Aviation to work on your aircraft. They advertise 'no job too small' and we certainly found this to be the case. They are a friendly, efficient and business-like team drawing on a fund of relevant experience to good effect.
