A Royal Air Force engineering background including a 2 year tour with the Red Arrows, combined with a passion for military aviation gave Chris the impetus to start Jet Art with co-founder Melanie in 2005.
The initial building of bespoke aviation inspired furniture, quickly evolved into the supply of collectibles, cockpits and engines. 2007 saw the leap to the first full size aircraft with the acquisition of a Sea Harrier. By 2008 the partnership had grown into an accomplished Limited Company.

Over the next decade Jet Art Aviation further diversified into large scale restorations, aircraft logistics, movie props and supplying training aids to major UK and International companies.

Today the talented and experienced team of people below make Jet Art Aviation Ltd the company it is today.

The New Recruits...roles to be decided

The Cat Story and why so many...

The Jet Art Cats are all feral kittens that have found their way in to our yard over the last 3 years. We have taken them in, had them neutered and then released them. However, they have all stayed around the site (probably due to the amount of fuss, treats and attention they get from all the staff here) and have become Mel and Chris's family pets.


Mel would like to add she is not a crazy cat lady, Chris is as much to blame....
