AMS Aircraft Recovery Ltd is a UK based engineering company specialising in the design and manufacture of aircraft recovery systems.

Established in 1988, the company was founded by staff with over 50 years experience in the design of aircraft recovery equipment. This enabled the company to rapidly become one of the market leaders in its field: designing, developing, manufacturing and distributing aircraft recovery equipment for use all over the world.

Over the years AMS has developed new services to complement our core engineering business, and we are now internationally recognised as specialist trainers on the use of aircraft lifting and aircraft moving equipment.

Over 1,100 students have benefited from our training courses, which can be conducted at our dedicated training facility in the UK, airports across the world, or military air force bases.
