Bruce Dickinson Gives Tour Of New Cardiff MRO Facility


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.

* No, I'm clearly not a metal head. Yes, Iron Maiden is big enough that I should know who the lead singer is. I blame rust from being out of the blogging scene for so long...but at least someone's still reading! Seriously, thanks for the course corrections.
