Aviation company offers lifeline to Flybmi workers

A company based at East Midlands Airport is set to offer a lifeline to workers from stricken Flybmi after the company slumped into administration.

RVL Group provides airborne platforms for aerial data capture, mapping, environment and safety surveillance, as well as low volume air cargo operations within the UK and Europe. It operates on behalf of government agencies, global couriers and international logistics companies.

Dean Simpkins, head of engineering RVL Group, said: “As with the closure of Monarch Aircraft Engineering in January of this year this is sad news and our sympathies go out to all concerned. Several of the team from Monarch recently joined our growing team here at RVL Group and again if there are any members of staff at Flybmi looking to remain within the industry I’d urge them to get in touch with us today as we are always very interested in hearing from talented people and currently have the following opportunities open:

RVL is looking for people to fill technical roles to support the Part 145 maintenance organisation including B2 engineers, Part M support staff, maritime task specialists and line pilots in particular those with B200 rating.

Managing director David Connor said: “We are reliable, passionate people, who invest the time and effort to ensure a robust operation and a successful business for our customers which has generated today’s growth and expansion. As we continue to increase our UK staff, which is currently growing by over 30 per cent there has never been a more exciting time to be part of RVL Group. Our dedication and flexible approach is why our customers endorse us as the ‘go to’ people for on-time and on-budget aviation services.”
