Need Your B-757 Aircraft Serviced? Then Talk to Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson

All passenger aircraft have to undergo a series of scheduled maintenance denoted as A, B, and D checks. Since opening up for business nine months ago, the company has completed 43 of the various check, including 737s, 757s and A320s.
