About Us

The Metal Seagulls Team are passionate about all things aviation and engineering. We have many years of hands-on experience in light aircraft build, maintenance, adaptation, operation and related engineering solutions. From our base at SLEAP AIRFIELD, in Shropshire, UK, we are able to offer a wide range of support from the odd cotterpin to builder support with build in our centre.

We are a family business and our directors, Jonathan and Patricia Porter, are both LAA and BMAA inspectors, both factory trained at ULPower, Zenith/Zenair and Rotax, enabling them to provide a great service to their clients.

Metal Seagulls represents ULPower Aero Engines, Airmaster props, Aircraft Spruce , Belite instruments, DUC Propellers, EarthX Batteries and Zenair, enabling us to offer amazing  support to our clients and aircraft options with 2 seat STOL and  2 seat cruising airframes.  We enjoy getting and keeping our clients flying.

The company personnel have extensive in-field experiences in building and flying aircraft in West Africa, where our directors were distributors for Rotax Aircraft Engines, X-Air and Zenith (Zenair), provides a great base from which to support various OEMs, NGOs, specialist operators and home-builders alike. We know what it is like to build for personal use and for mission flights, understanding that many clients want support from a single-point supplier, where possible, for peace of mind and efficiency; to that end, we provide consultancy, training and support solutions to meet the needs of our valued clients.

We have set up this e-commerce portal to better serve our customers, but we are still ready to provide tech support or to answer questions if you would like to give us a call.

We operate out of Sleap Airfield, near Shrewsbury, and are happy to receive visitors by arrangement.
