Bristow Purchases Severn Aviation

By Staff Writer | December 9, 2008

Bristow Helicopters, an affiliate of Bristow Group Inc., has purchased Severn Aviation, a provider of multi-engine instrument flight training at Gloucestershire Airport (EGBJ) in Cheltenham, 90 mi. west of London. Operating as Bristow Academy Gloucester, the school will remain at its current location, operating AS355 Twin Squirrel helicopters and Elite Evolution flight training devices. “Utilizing multi-engine helicopters for the instrument training program will introduce pilots to a multi-engine environment at a much earlier stage in their career, and will provide them with an easier transition to other multi-engine aircraft within Bristow,” said Patrick Corr, Sr. V.P. of Bristow Global Safety, Training and Standards.
