This work by the Serious Fraud Office has been completed in partnership with the UK Civil Aviation Authority, the United States FAA and EASA, who issued alerts earlier this year.

Such alerts were given to aviation businesses who may have bought or installed AOG Technics‘ parts and continue to manage the safety implications involved which has resulted in the grounding of aircraft in the UK & US.

Commenting on this raid in London was Nick Ephgrave QPM, Director of the Serious Fraud Office:

“This investigation deals with very serious allegations of fraud involving the supply of aircraft parts, the consequences of which are potentially far reaching.

“The SFO is best placed to take this investigation forward vigorously and we are determined to establish the facts as swiftly as possible.”

As the controversy behind such aircraft parts continues, things are beginning to clearly go even further downhill at AOG Technics, with this being the latest hit taken.

All eyes will be on what the results from the SFO will produce, as well as what potential punishments could be in place for the aircraft supplier, whose site was based in London.
