Cabair ceases trading

A one-time provider of rookie pilots (ab initio) for British Airways, Cabair Flight Training has ceased trading.  It was the main operator at Elstree Airfield, easily the shortest surfaced runway (651m) within the M25, and just 12.5 miles north of Marble Arch. 

The company also operated bases in the UK for fixed wing training at Bournemouth, Cranfield and Wycombe airfield.  Helicopter training was undertaken at Cranfield, Elstree, Blackbushe, Denham, Rochester and Wellesbourne.  At Biggin Hill instructor training was provided. A facility functioned in Spain at Requena and Cabair was associated with a number of similar training organisations around the world.  The company was also involved with British Airways in offering full flight Boeing 737 simulators at Cranebank near Heathrow.

Cabair’s aircraft fleet included the Austrian built Diamond series of composite aircraft as well as the traditional Piper Warriors and various flight procedure trainers and simulators. 

Joint Administrators names were published last Friday, these being Nigel Geoffrey Atkinson and Mark Robert Fry (IP Nos 001502 and 008588), both of Begbies Traynor (Central) LLP.  They can be contacted via  natasha.manyande@begbies-traynor.com
