We would like to give a special thanks to the engineering staff who worked so hard to keep Dan Air's aircraft flying safely. Dan - Air Engineering Ltd employed trained and people of the highest standards. Engineering is often overlooked by people interested in aviation. It's doesn't have the glamour that is associated with flying. But behind the grease and the grime lie people. Real people who were dedicated to their work. Carrying out large and small tasks. People who worked in the upholstery shop did so for almost thirty years. A company that was not good to work for would not command that loyalty! There is a company history here. Dan Air's 1400 engineering staff worked at Manchester Airport , Gatwick Airport and the main Lasham base. Not only were they responsible for the maintainance of Dan Air's upwards of 60 aircraft, but they were also entrusted with aircraft in the Bristish Midland, Air Europe and several Caledonian aircraft.
