AIRMILES is the UK’s longest-running loyalty programme. And, if you like travel, it is also the most rewarding. AIRMILES has millions of members who regularly collect Airmiles with their everyday purchases, credit card spend and online shopping.
Their members use their Airmiles for free flights with popular airlines like British Airways – every Airmiles fare includes airline taxes, fees and surcharges. And also for a wide range of travel rewards, including Eurostar journeys and special days out in the UK. Because Airmiles are collected on everyday spending rather than flying, AIRMILES is not a frequent flyer programme, but a frequent buyer programme.
The AIRMILES scheme is managed by The Mileage Company, a subsidiary of British Airways which also runs the airlines frequent flyer scheme, BA Miles. As the UK’s most popular travel loyalty scheme, theyve been rewarding their customers with Airmiles for their everyday spending for over 20 years. Collecting is easy. You can collect Airmiles on almost everything you buy, from groceries to petrol, because they have over 200 online and high street partners. The more Airmiles you collect, the more you can use – and the further you can go. Their flights are in 7 easy zones, so it’s easy to see where your miles can take you. And they only fly with quality airlines like British Airways.

With a workforce of 15 full time engineers and CAA approvals in M3, M5, B1 and E4 the throughput of work is impressive. This renowned Company grew directly from the small but dedicated team that restored the two derelict wartime Bristol Blenheim aircraft to an airworthy condition at Duxford Airfield. Lead by Chief Engineer, John Romain, they have also completed many other outstanding restorations, both flying and static, for other Museums, Collections and private owners. The length and depth of their experience in such major restorations is unsurpassed in Europe – the first airworthy Blenheim was rebuilt from virtual scrap over a twelve year period, only to be destroyed within a month of completion whilst the second Blenheim was rebuilt to flying condition in just five years from starting all over again with another derelict airframe.
Both of the airframes, all the systems and the four supercharged Bristol Mercury engines were rebuilt entirely in-house by the highly skilled team. Both the flying Blenheims were greatly admired for the very high standard of workmanship and the close attention to detail in achieving complete authenticity. These qualities are also to be seen in the North American P51D Mustang restored by the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford as Big Beautiful Doll for the Imperial War Museum at Lambeth, where it is now a major exhibit. Also displayed by the IWM in London are the Focke-Wulf Fw190 and Heinkel He162, which were conserved and painted by ARCo. An important exhibit at Duxford is the Westland Lysander completely rebuilt from an incomplete wreck by ARCo over a five year period for the IWM.

ScotAirways commenced services in April 1986 as Suckling Airways, a regional airline based in eastern England, and named after founders Roy and Merlyn Suckling. Early airports served included Ipswich, Cambridge, Manchester and Amsterdam. Services were operated by a fleet of Dornier 228 aircraft, and the airline quickly became known for providing an on-time, reliable and friendly service to its customers, who were mainly business people from the local areas served by Suckling Airways. Throughout the 1990′s, Suckling revised and expanded its operations, including establishment of a head office at Cambridge Airport, and new operating bases at Luton, Southampton, and Stansted, together with routes such as Cambridge/Amsterdam, London Luton/Paris CDG, London Stansted/Zurich and Southampton/Amsterdam.
The latest turbo-propeller aircraft from the famous Dornier manufacturer is the Fairchild – Dornier 328. It is a derivative from the older Dornier 228 but is such a quantum leap in technology as to be almost unrecognisable. The main advantages of the aircraft from a pilot’s point of view are its performance and the ‘glass cockpit’ normally associated with larger aircraft such as the Airbus. The 328 has exceptional take-off and landing performance allowing it to operate safely from relatively short runways such as London City and Dundee. This performance is derived from the combination of a jet engine powering a relatively large propeller.
