Expansion of Bombardier Aviation’s service center at London Biggin Hill is on track as the Canadian airframer names a couple of key appointments to lead the operation. Greg Hoggett has been named general manager of the service center while Corey Trudgen moves over to support the Biggin Hill expansion and future expansion across the services network.

Hoggett, who has more than 30 years of aviation experience, was most recently group operations director for AJW Group and, before that, managing director and COO for TAG Aviation Europe/TAG Aviation UK. “His extensive knowledge and experience will be influential in leading the evolution of our Biggin Hill facility as we continue to enhance our customer service offerings in the region,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Bombardier executive v-p of services and support and corporate strategy.

Announced in February, the Biggin Hill project involves the construction of a new and larger facility encompassing nearly 250,000 sq ft and accommodating up to 14 Global 7500s. It will replace the existing facilities Bombardier has occupied since opening the Biggin Hill operation in 2017. The new facility is expected to be complete by 2022.
