Reborn’s rich heritage

Reborn Aviation understands what makes a good aircraft because it is an integral part of our history.

For over 25 years, our founders, Edmund and Sophie Hewertson have worked with aircraft, from ownership, management, chartering, engineering and flight training.

Around them, they have formed an outstanding team with numerous years involved in repair, overhaul, safety and restoration of both commercial and military aircraft.

Reborn’s Airframe Specialist, Paul ‘PK’ Kingsbury is widely regarded as one of England’s leading experts in airframe restoration. Most recently responsible for bringing the Royal Navy’s Sea Vixen back to flight.

The Reborn concept is an homage to the aircraft Edmund adored as a student and an instructor – the Piper Aircraft Company’s extraordinary Warrior. Knowing its strengths and weaknesses from the inside out, together the team have focused on improvements and modernisation that brings this wonderful aircraft into the 21st Century. It is perfect for flying schools or those who simply want a cost effective way to fly their own aircraft with new-build quality standards.
