Air Service Training

Project synopsis

Air Service Training Ltd (AST) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Perth College UHI, part of the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI). AST themselves have been a world leader in the field of Aviation training since 1931, making it arguably the longest-established organisation of its kind in the world.

In short AST are providers of expert aircraft engineering and flight training.

AST approached Tayfusion to build their new website, they had very specific requirements geared (excuse the pun) at improving their service to trainees and their sponsors.

They also needed to allow for their students to connect better with them, giving them access to functions of their training performance; basically to save them time and administration costs.

Together we built a system that allows AST to manage their students, courses and availablity and to tie their website data into their existing in-house system that manages attendance and exam progress.

This was coupled with special facilities to allow the student sponsors to be part of the process.

AST were very happy with the result, and we continue to work with and support them as they evolve.


We have been customers of TayFusion for over ten years and have always found their team to provide the highest standards of service whilst being easy to deal with.

They understand our business, priorities and objectives very well. We see them as an extension to our own IT team, adding skills such as web and database system design in a most cost effective manner.

Managing a very small IT team I have to rely heavily on partners in key areas to provide expert support particularly in the areas of website and Intranet design.

Over the last 10 years I have worked with Mark and the team at TayFusion I have found them consistently helpful, knowledgeable and always willing to help answer and develop some of my wilder requests.

I particularly value their friendliness and professionalism and I always feel comfortable in picking up the phone and bouncing a few ideas around with them as I would if they were a colleague.

Their support allows me to focus on supporting my colleagues and concentrate on well... the boring stuff frankly...
