Airspeed Aviation Ltd. is a privately-owned, family-run UK company,[1] set up in 1982 by Martin Jones. Based initially at Burnaston Airfield, when the land was acquired for a new Toyota factory it moved to a nearby site at Eggington before acquiring its current location of Derby Airfield.[2]. Besides operating the airfield, Airspeed Aviation is a CAA approved aircraft maintenance and repair company.[3] At the airfield, it also runs the Derby Aero Club and Training School and houses the Amy Johnson Comet Restoration Centre. In 2019, the company moved into new, purpose-built aircraft maintenance facility at the airfield, at the same time establishing themselves as a sales and service centre for Garmin avionics products.[4]
