Stansted-based flight support solutions company, Flightworx Aviation, is celebrating its 15th anniversary in April. This is a proud milestone for the company, and it plans to celebrate locally with participation in a major charity event at the end of the month.

The past 15 years have seen Flightworx offer more services to more aviation sectors, as it continues to grow. It now serves more of the aviation industry, as it strives to offer bespoke, adaptable solutions 24/7 worldwide.

Expanding industries and services

Flightworx was founded in 2008 offering flight support services to the general aviation sector. It has since grown significantly and expanded in many service areas. From having just two staff back at the start, Flightworx employs over 80 people today.

Over the years, the core original business of flight support solutions has been expanded to cover not just general aviation, but also scheduled and non-scheduled commercial passenger flights, and cargo operations.

Flightworx now offers many extra services to the aviation industry too. The first major expansion was the addition of fuel sourcing and services in 2009 (now known as Fuelworx). Travel agency services followed with Travelworx in 2015. And in 2022, Flightworx added its latest division Aviadox. This specialises in the production, revision, and updating of commercial and non-commercial aviation manuals.

Local integration at Stansted

As it has grown, Flightworx has also strengthened its presence and relationships locally. As well as employing many local people, it is now a partner of Stansted college.

Chris Anderson-Jones, Flightworx Director and co-founder, explained how the company is proud of this development, saying:

“We are delighted to have become a part of the local community around the Stansted Airport area as well as an integral partner of Stansted College and have had the pleasure of working with and meeting many people in the area over the years.”

Celebrating the anniversary

Any major milestone deserves a good celebration, and Flightworx will do just that. To mark the occasion, the company is planning to take part in the Great Dunmow Soapbox Race on April 30th.

This will take place at Dunmow, just to the east of Stansted Airport. The race is the second-largest soapbox race in the UK and will see teams from the local area and across the country compete with hand-built soapboxes and a challenging obstacle course. This will, of course, be a spectacular event for the participants and local area, but will also raise money for local charities in partnership with the area’s Round Table organisation.

Capturing the importance to the company, Chris Anderson-Jones explains:

“We are delighted to have reached this milestone, especially in the recent uncertainty the industry has found itself in, and we are really happy to be able to celebrate with our valued team in a fun and charitable way.”
