The management team at the Absolute Service Centre (ASC) is proud of our heritage and our long-standing support and representation of Textron Aviation Products.  As a Cessna Authorised Service Facility since 1964 we are the oldest facility of its kind outside the USA. We were additionally awarded representation for the Beechcraft portfolio in February 2017.

The Absolute Service Centre is complimented by our Authorised Parts Distributorship for Textron Aviation, and for a significant number of other global OEM Parts manufacturers.  In addition to being able to supply Textron Aviation proprietary parts, we are also uniquely able to supply a full basket of aftermarket parts.  As related to the Service Centre, this generally results in quicker, more cost-effective maintenance and repair based on inventory availability and a direct source.
