Airspeed Aviation Ltd was first set up in 1982, as a CAA approved maintenance company.

Other the years, it has gained considerable experience to allow its customers the very best in professional service.

Airspeed Aviation Ltd, was originally set up by Martin Jones, when he decided to turn a hobby into a business, giving up a well paid job in industry, to set up from scratch a dream.

Early days - Aztecs in our first facility - 1982.

This happened, however only through extremely hard work and dedication (Not to mention a huge financial commitment)

Since then, Martin and Margaret Jones, have developed the company, from a small set up in a shared rented hangar, to now, a dedicated maintenance facility on its own airfield used by our own flying school.

Airspeed Aviation is now a major UK maintenance company, but still very defiantly a family business.

We are also an ACF50 and Microlon Treatment Centre

Airspeed Aviation owns the Derby Aero Club & Flying School and operates Derby Airfield, which is owned by the Jones's.

Airspeed Aviation is currently restoring Amy Johnson's DH88 Comet Racer to a flyable condition. The work is mainly being done by volunteers in our facility. For further information and contacts visit and here.
