In 2008 the Ministry of Defence contracted with Serco Defence, Science & Technology to provide two additional new 200GT King Air aircraft for multi-engine pilot training at RAF Cranwell. The aircraft were flown from the USA to the UK by a ferry company, when Forest Aviation Services Limited then took responsibility for completing the HM Customs & Excise import processes.
I am pleased to record that the potentially complex HM Customs aircraft import requirements that would take the King Airs from first landing in the UK to final delivery to RAF Cranwell were managed by Clive Chapman, Director, Forest Aviation Services, in a highly professional, efficient, and proactive manner.
Clive Chapman's previous experience as a member of the HM Customs GA Team was a significant factor in his ability to facilitate the aircraft import process, and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Forest Aviation Services for this task.
The Company was quite simply flawless, and represents good value for money by avoiding the many potential pitfalls that can catch out inexperienced individuals in this. business area.

As a result of an incorrect import process, my aircraft was detained by HMR&C. Suddenly needing the services of a lawyer and an expert in Customs management - I was referred to Forest Aviation. After a phone conversation and exchange of documents, Clive & Sarah Chapman quickly agreed to help resolve this problem. The Forest Aviation team quickly established what I had done wrong, the implications and options. Forest kept me totally up to speed, options to go forward and how to interact with HMR&C. This was invaluable and helped cut through several procedural log jams and resulted in my aircraft being re-imported properly at a much lower cost than I feared. Their knowledge of Customs law and the inner workings of HMR&C was invaluable and without doubt I will use Forest Aviation for any future aviation imports.
