"Keenair is solid and dependable"Tony Dean

Tony Dean, owner of a Cessna 177 aircraft, has been using Keenair's services for over 10 years now, both in a business and leisure capacity.

Tony's occupation as an environmental consultant required visits to clients throughout the UK so flying to meetings offered a convenient and quicker alternative to driving. Now that Tony is retired, he mainly flies his Cessna for pleasure.

During his time with Keenair, Tony has benefited from the company's hangarage facilities, maintenance services and has also used the Flying School offices.

Tony comments:

Using my Cessna for business travel meant that I was reliant on Keenair to keep the aircraft maintained to the highest standard, ready to fly to meetings at short notice. Nowadays Keenair allows me to focus on my enjoyment of flying and let them take care of its maintenance and safety.
Keenair is solid and dependable and being a family run business, the level of service which has been provided over the years by Martin Keen, the owner, as well as the rest of the team, has been excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Keenair to any fellow aircraft owners.

"Keenair have demonstrated an unrivalled level of expertise"Mitch Walker

In the last 30 years Mitch Walker has owned and co-owned several vintage ex-military aircraft including a 1942 Boeing Stearman, all of which have been maintained by Keenair.

The Stearman had originally been shipped from the US and had been almost completely dismantled. Keenair were the obvious choice to rebuild and restore the big open cockpit bi-plane because of their extensive experience in maintaining and operating this class of aircraft.

Once restored, the NAVY 205 earned its keep by being used for film work, air shows, trial flights and corporate events.

During the time that Mitch operated the aircraft, Keenair handled all of its maintenance requirements and also supplied hangarage facilities.

Mitch comments:

Keenair have demonstrated an unrivalled level of expertise over the 30 years that I've worked with them. Their engineers have actual hands-on experience of restoring and maintaining vintage aircraft, particularly ex-military models, an asset which I believe sets Keenair apart from the competition not only in the North West but in the whole of the UK.

"A safe and secure environment for our aircraft"James Nicholson

James Nicholson and his son John are big advocates of both Keenair and its sister company, Liverpool Flying School (LFS)

John completed his Private Pilot's Licence (PPL) training at LFS a couple of years ago and now James is following in his son's footsteps by learning to fly too.

Following the purchase of their SportCruiser light aircraft six months ago, James and John selected Keenair for the hangarage and maintenance of their prized possession. The plane has just completed its first annual inspection and Keenair has added a couple more happy customers to its growing list.

James comments:

The team at Keenair is very accommodating and the level of service provided reflects their passion and enthusiasm, both for the company, its customers and the aviation industry in general. Our SportCruiser arrived virtually unannounced at the hangar but was instantly made welcome by Keenair.

Keenair's location at Liverpool John Lennon Airport offers convenience and all the benefits that you would expect to get from being based at a major international airport. They are open 7 days a week, have access to a sophisticated and efficient air traffic control service and provide a safe and secure environment for our aircraft.

"An efficient, yet extremely personal service"Keith Armstrong

Keith Armstrong and his group of pilots were happy in the knowledge that their aircraft was safe in the hands of Keenair for many years.

Keith obtained his Private Pilot's License (PPL) with Keenair's sister company, Liverpool Flying School, in the early 80s and subsequently set up a group called the Chipmunk Flyers. The group consists of 25 pilots, all passionate about their hobby and keen to maximise their precious flying time.

Keenair provided hangarage facilities for the group's Chipmunk aircraft and also provided flight planning and "clubhouse" facilities for the group.

Keith comments:

Keenair has been flying the flag for flight training and aircraft maintenance in Liverpool for 50 years now. On behalf of the Chipmunk Flyers I can say that it has been a pleasure to work with Martin and the team for so many the years. Keenair has consistently gone out of its way to provide an efficient, yet extremely personal service to our group.

Keenair's location at Liverpool John Lennon Airport is a major advantage too. In my opinion Liverpool is a fantastic place to fly and provides a superb base for light aircraft operations. The air traffic controllers seem to positively enjoy the challenge of fitting us into the schedule and have always shown themselves to be flexible and accommodating.

"An excellent working relationship"Dave Tubby

Keenair provides hangarage and maintenance services to Dave Tubby, owner of a 30 year old US Rockwell Commander.

Dave was first introduced to Keenair when he flew as part of a group, Alpha Alpha in 2001 and since then Keenair has performed routine maintenance, annual inspections and general problem solving services typical of an older aircraft.

Dave comments:

My 1977 Rockwell Commander has been hangared at and maintained by Keenair Ltd since 2001. Meeting the challenges of maintaining an aging aircraft and the ever changing demands of burdensome European Regulations is no mean feat. Over the years I have received a high level of service and assistance and have an excellent working relationship with all on the engineering and support teams.

"We have been pleased since making the move to Keenair"Tim MacKay

Tim MacKay has been a co-owner of a Piper Warrior since 1991 and now shares ownership of G-CPTM with his son Crispin. Friends and former colleagues also fly the aircraft.

Originally based and hangared at Manchester South Side the aircraft was then subjected to the elements for several years, having been parked on the apron in the open air at Liverpool then Woodford, where it was flown by fellow Avro Flying Club members and then back at Liverpool.

A colleague recommended Keenair and Tim was attracted to the company primarily because of their ability to provide a complete package for hangarage, maintenance and handling.

Tim comments:

My initial viewing of the Keenair facility revealed a comprehensive GA operation and they have since demonstrated their experience and expertise in maintaining light aircraft. The handling facilities are good and meet the needs of the group of friends, mainly Avro Flying Club members, who also fly the aircraft. We like the lounge area which is a pleasant place to bring friends or family whilst using the facilities for briefing and flight planning. There is a meeting room available also, suitable for spreading out to plan longer trips etc.

We have been pleased since making the move to Keenair and I can recommend the company to other groups or individual pilots.
