Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson Launches Aircraft Repair Business

Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson Launches Aircraft Repair Business
5/3/2012 12:13 PM ET

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson isn't just a licensed airline pilot, he's now in the repair business as well. Dickinson recently launched his own aircraft repair business in South Wales.

Cardiff Aviation Ltd, based at the Twin Peaks Hangar at St. Athan, Vale of Glamorgan, will reportedly create 1,000 new jobs in the area.

"We're coming into this enterprise with the knowledge that we'll also be bringing business to South Wales," Dickinson said of the new company. "South Wales has long had an association with the aircraft industry and I am delighted that I am able to have a small part in the continuation of that tradition."

Dickinson first stated that he was interested in starting his own firm in November last year when his former employer Icelandic airline Astraeus went out of business.
