Bruce Dickinson Gives Tour Of New Cardiff MRO Facility

RSS

Earlier this month, aviation entrepreneur and Iron Maiden guitarist lead singer* Bruce Dickinson unveiled plans to bring tons of heavy metal (the company's words, not mine) to South Wales. 

Cardiff Aviation Limited would be a heavy maintenance, training and technical services center, employing perhaps 1,000 workers. In this video, he takes viewers on a tour of the new facility as it currently exists, and shares some of his visions for the future.

As the video suggests, the company is wasting no time engaging with the industry. In addition to its YouTube channel, the company is active on Twitter and is building a website.
