About us


Our story

At Tailwind Solution Limited, our love for aviation drives who we are and what we do. Every day.

‘’Aeroplanes have come a long way from the first powered flight in 1903. Everyday there are thousands of planes in the sky at any one time. I have been a licenced engineer for the last 5 years and whenever I am on the job, I have the responsibility of ascertaining whether an aircraft is fit to fly or not and respectively I would take the responsibility of the decision I make. This is a daily routine or after any maintenance is carried out on the aircraft regardless of the size of job. I love my job and I love having to carry out work that requires a lot of care, precision and quality upon which the lives of others matters’’ – Karan Patel
