Meet the Expert

Gary Tims, Portsmouth UK RTC General Manager

Tims is a Time Served Engineer who brings 30+ years of engine maintenance experience to the leadership role.

Learn more about why we're proud to call Gary an Engine Expert!

 

What sparked your interest in the aviation industry?

An early fascination with all things mechanical led me to successfully complete an Airframe/Engine Apprenticeship with Dan-Air Engineering over 30 years ago.


What specific knowledge or tips would you give to customers as it pertains to engine maintenance?

I’m a huge advocate of OEM Engine Programs. Engine Maintenance is vastly expensive. Although good budgetary planning can certainly ease this financial hit for scheduled Hot Sections and Overhauls, it’s often the Unscheduled events that cause the most pain.
When the unexpected happens, and you’re AOG down line somewhere… with your engines enrolled on a program you can place a call to your nearest ASF and they will work on your behalf with the OEM to get you back in the air with as little disruption (and cost!) as possible.


In your mind, what sets H+S Aviation apart from other industry organisations?

H+S employs some of the industry's leading product experts and has a hugely experienced Field Service team. In addition, we have a fantastic reputation in the EMEAI region for Engineering Excellence and Customer Service.
