Kitsons had the great pleasure to thank two of our clients, Begbies Traynor and Armada Asset Finance Ltd with the opportunity to fly a Boeing 737-800 Simulator at the Virtual Jet Centre, Chudleigh. Andrew Pay and David Turner hosted Ian Walker, Jonathan Trembath and Agne Sinkeviciute of Begbies Traynor and Sarah Ainley of Armada Asset Finance. If you’ve not been able to experience this facility, it’s well worth a visit. 

The morning started early. A little too early for the VJC Staff who had been expecting us a little later. But 6 keen, uninitiated airline pilots...

Posted by on September 15th 2016 in Blog Posts

On the 14th September we took part in the National Cycle To Work Day.

We at Kitsons strive to support healthy living and keeping the planet clean by reducing our carbon footprint. With this, our staff chose to cycle to and from work amongst the mist and the rain in support of the cause, in hope of making a difference.

Below are some of the images taken throughout the day!
