Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden fame starts his own aircraft maintenance business

Is there anything that Bruce Dickinson doesn’t do??? We all know that he flies planes, is an awesome fencer, and is a huge submarine enthusiast, and oh yeah, and he sings for Iron Maiden dammit!  But who saw him opening his own aviation maintenance business?  I guess it makes sense since he is a pilot, so Bruce has decided to start up Cardiff Aviation ltd.

Bruce is leasing the Twin Peaks Hangar at St Athan, Vale of Glamorgan in Wales, United Kingdom from the Welsch government and will help maintain airliners and other large aircraft for major and independent airlines. It will also have facilities to complete the full range of ancillary aircraft maintenance and training activities and has the expertise and approvals to certify aircraft from many jurisdictions, including the USA.

Wow Bruce, wow.

To read the official quotes about the project from the man himself click here.Bruce Dickinson had this to say about the business:

“We’re coming into this enterprise with the knowledge that we’ll also be bringing business to south Wales.  South Wales has long had an association with the aircraft industry and I am delighted that I am able to have a small part in the continuation of that tradition.”
