Multiflight adds second charter Dauphin

Leading UK private aviation company Multiflight has added a second Dauphin helicopter to its fleet of charter helicopters, alongside its Twin Squirrel and JetRanger. “We can now offer our charter customers even greater choice for private travel by helicopter,” says md Steve Borrowdale. “An increasing number of people are recognising the benefits of charter travel, including flexibility and hassle-free travelling.” The new Dauphin has undergone a major refurbishment at Multiflight’s in-house engineering and maintenance facility at Leeds Bradford, including the installation of new avionics, cream interior and repaint.

Norwich-based air charter operator SaxonAir has placed an order for its first mid-size jet, a new Hawker 900XP, with delivery expected in spring 2012. Chris Mace, md of SaxonAir, says: “We are very excited by the new opportunities that the Hawker will offer SaxonAir and its customers. It will allow us to expand our business by offering clients a greater choice of nonstop destinations with an enhanced in-flight experience. We considered several other aircraft in its class, however the 900XP delivered a combination of range, speed, payload and comfort that we could not find in any other mid-size jet.” The 900XP can travel 2,600nm carrying up to eight passengers in a stand-up cabin with galley and fullsized private lavatory. SaxonAir will be offering the aircraft for private charter with many of the same onboard creature comforts that one would expect to find on larger sized jets; a benefit that operations manager Lee McGahan describes as “right-sizing”. “We feel it is important to provide our clients with the same level of service and onboard benefits that they might be used to on super mid-size and heavy jets,” he says “A multilingual flight attendant, hot food, satellite telephone and wireless internet connection will all be included as part of the first class cabin service. After all, the aircraft may be occupied for hours at a time, and it is important that the client feels as comfortable and ‘at home’ as possible.” Sean McGeough, Hawker

Beechcraft president for Europe, Middle East and Africa, says: “We know that SaxonAir carried out a very thorough review of the market before placing this order. It’s a testament to all of the team at Hawker Beechcraft and a reflection of SaxonAir’s previous experience with our aircraft that they have selected the 900XP. “Having our own service centre close by in Chester was also seen as beneficial in maximising aircraft availability, with the whole package providing better value and a competitive advantage to SaxonAir’s business.”

Aboard the SaxonAir Hawker 400XP, soon to be joined by a bigger sister 900XP.

SaxonAir has experienced a 12.5% increase in charter flights flown and a 65% increase in handled flights since moving into its new £7.9m facility at Norwich airport last May. Its current fleet now consists of a Hawker 400XP, a King Air 350, a Citation Mustang, and Eurocopter EC120 and EC135 helicopters at Norwich, a second Mustang at Thessaloniki in Greece, and a EC135 at Redhill near London Gatwick.

Comlux commits sixth aircraft to Moscow The audited magazine for business aviation in Europe

Comlux has taken delivery of a new Airbus ACJ319 under management contract for an undisclosed customer, and this has become the sixth aircraft managed and operated by Fly Comlux in Russia. The fleet based in Moscow also includes an ACJ318, two Global XRS, a Global 5000 and a Challenger 605. The aircraft is available on the vip

charter market and has a cabin certified for 19 passengers and designed by Comlux Creatives’ designer Tim Callies. The main room offers a vip lounge with L-shaped divan, two club seats and a large dining table for six guests. At the front of the cabin a fully private compartment has a large bedroom with two beds completed by a

dedicated bathroom with shower. The cabin also features a first class seating area at the back for guests. “This new management contract for Comlux confirms its experience in operating the ACJ family and its positioning as the premier Airbus vip operator worldwide,” says Andrea Zanetto, ceo of Fly Comlux. “Together with our ACJ318 already based in

Moscow, the ACJ319 offers a highly comfortable and luxurious flying experience for our clientele in Russia, the CIS countries and the Middle East region”. The total Comlux fleet comprises 19 aircraft and includes two ACJ319s, a 767BBJ, four Global Express, three Challenger 605s, two Challenger 850s and a Dassault Falcon 900 LX.

Lord Sugar bases Legacy at Luton Air Charter Scotland has taken over the operation of UK entrepreneur Lord Sugar’s Embraer Legacy 650 aircraft, which will now be available for charter from its new base at Luton airport. Derek Thomson, operations director of Air Charter Scotland says: “We are very excited to have this brand new Legacy 650 available for immediate ad-hoc charter. We already have a Legacy 600 but we strongly believe that the new Legacy 650’s longer range, extra payload and amazing cabin design will be attractive for the charter market.” Air Charter Scotland regularly operates charters to the US as an approved Visa Waiver Scheme operator as well as charters to the Middle East and Asia under a worldwide AOC. “We feel that the 650 now enables us to offer our clients a brand new aircraft with extra range to serve regions that most aircraft can struggle with at a price point whereby we continue to offer charterers the very best quality of service and value,” says Thomson. “Air Charter Scotland have historically delivered a consistent level of fine service and value to its client base and we are pleased to have our new Legacy 650 on their fleet and are confident that the charter market will appreciate this wonderful aircraft,” says Lord Sugar. The Legacy 650, registered GSUGA, was previously based at Stansted and has a standard 13 seat configuration and a straight aisle with a dropped floor giving two extra inches of headroom.

Héli-Union extends offshore capabilities with first EC225s and orders for EC175s Héli-Union has taken delivery of its first two Eurocopter EC225s, configured for offshore operations and to be deployed in transportation roles for oil and gas companies. “With its superior range and payload, the EC225 is tailored to perform the most demanding offshore missions and will enable us to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” says Patrick Molis, chairman, ceo and md of the Compagnie Nationale de Navigation, HéliUnion’s parent company. “These deliveries confirm the successful fivedecade partnership between HéliUnion and Eurocopter. We are

looking forward to the next chapter of our cooperation.” Héli-Union’s current fleet of 30 helicopters includes a wide range of Eurocopter products, including the AS350, EC145, AS365, AS332 and now the new EC225. In addition, the company has ordered four of Eurocopter’s brand-new EC175s, for which deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2013. “Eurocopter and Héli-Union benefit from a long-standing cooperation, which allows for the optimal sharing of experiences and know-how,” said Eurocopter ceo Lutz Bertling. “Our technical and

Jet Services takes a majority stake in Darta Group Two of the leading business aircraft support and operations companies in France have been brought together in December, when Jet Services Group took control of the Darta Group. The acquisition of a majority stake in the long-established Darta is a major step in Jet Services’ plan to expand its full range of activities at Le Bourget airport. The group is already present there in the form of a terminal handling service (Advanced Air Support in conjunction with Execujet), a maintenance hub, and an aerial photography business. In the coming months, major investment will be involved in the construction of a hangar for wide-bodied aircraft and

an upmarket business aviation terminal, as well as the construction of the ‘Courtyard by Marriott’ hotel. Both Jet Services (as Aerovision) and Darta operate fleets of Falcon and Beechcraft aircraft. The Darta Group was founded in 1971 by Yves Darnaudet and has been established at Le Bourget airport for 40 years. Darta Transport Aérien operates the aircraft, Escadrille Mercure provides ground handling and client reception, and Aero Jets Darta offers business aviation chartering of all types of aircraft worldwide thanks to its Parisian travel agency, AA Aviation, and its Nantes Atlantique office.

commercial teams stand ready to support Héli-Union’s growth into new regions around the world. By integrating the EC225 into a fleet, users will benefit from an aircraft that has become the reference for oil and gas missions, offering an outstanding performance for the challenging environments in which they need to operate.” The 11-ton EC225 can accommodate up to 19 passengers for crew change flights and is designed to meet the highest safety standard levels, assured by its system redundancy, automatic flight control system and full de-icing capability.

The Turkish National Police has selected Bell Helicopter from a field of several companies to enter final negotiations for an order for 15 Bell 429s with an option for five more. “This selection represents the culmination of the efforts of a dedicated team at Bell Helicopter in collaboration with our independent representative Saran Group Inc, located in Turkey,” said Larry Roberts, svp for Bell Helicopter’s commercial business. “The Bell 429 is well suited to provide a rock solid, twin-engine law enforcement platform being able to carry the necessary sensors and equipment to provide our aerial first responders the finest operational capability in the business.” The Bell 429 is the world’s newest light twin-engine helicopter. It has conducted extensive flight demonstrations in every continent except Antarctica, and has been certified in more than 40 countries. With configuration options ranging from VIP to air-medical, law enforcement, utility and oil and gas, the Bell 429 offers superior mission capability and adaptability.

Headed by Emmanuel Dupuy and partner Alain Regourd, it is a spinoff of Regourd Aviation’s helicopter sales department, which has decades of helicopter transaction experience, and has offices in Europe and the US. “Whether representing a seller or a buyer, we dramatically expand the resources available to clients. Our remuneration is 100% based on success,” says Dupuy.

Geneva-based PrivatAir has placed a firm order for five CS100 airliners and has taken options on an additional five. “After studying the Bombardier CSeries intently for the last four years, we finally decided to place an order for this versatile and cost efficient aircraft in January, at the Bahrain air show,” said Greg Thomas, president and ceo of PrivatAir. “We have not yet finalised the exact utilisation and hence configuration of our units, since the first will not be delivered until June 2014. “The CS100 jetliner is very well suited for our route expansion plans and we look forward to

introducing this very modern aircraft into our fleet.” Based on the list price for the CS100 aircraft, the firm order contract is valued at approximately US$309 million, and could increase to US$636 million if the five options are exercised. PrivatAir was founded more than 30 years ago and operates a large fleet of commercial and business aircraft to provide private charter and private airline services. Its services include exclusively business class flights on behalf of several major network airlines. The CSeries aircraft acquired by PrivatAir will be delivered in an all-business class configuration.

Growing JetNetherlands adds a fourth base

ACM moves on to IS-BAO stage two ACM Air Charter has achieved IS-BAO stage two status and has had its Wyvern Wingmancertification renewed. The company received its initial IS-BAO certification in March 2010, and was the first commercial airline in Germany to do so. Following a successful second audit in January, in which the effectiveness of the implemented safety management system comes under particular scrutiny, it has now earned the stage two status. The renewal of its Wyvern Wingman certification also underlines the high quality and safety standards of its flight operations and maintenance services. The Wyvern Operating Standards have been developed in cooperation with a panel consisting of representatives from the most sophisticated and demanding corporate flight departments in the world. ACM has been a Wyvern-approved operator since 1996. ACM operates a fleet of nine jets: two Global Express XRS, a Falcon 7X, two Falcon 2000EX, two Challenger 604, a Citation X and a Citation VII.

Air Hamburg joint chief executives Floris Helmers and Alex Lipsky were guests of Cessna in Wichita recently to celebrate the announcement that they are to operate the first Citation Latitude in Europe.

Air Hamburg launches the Latitude into Europe Germany’s EFO Aviation has become the first company in Europe to order the new Citation Latitude midsize jet, for delivery in the summer of 2016. It was attracted by the aircraft’s extended range as well as its 72-inch, flat-floor cabin. The aircraft will be operated by Air Hamburg Private Jets, which will use it for charter and executive transportation. “The Latitude is a new class of Citation and we are very happy to be the first to bring it to Europe,” says Floris Helmers, managing director at Air Hamburg. “The 2,300nm range will allow us to meet many different mission demands, including between Germany and Moscow. It will be the perfect complement to the other Citations in our fleet, which include three XLS+ and two CJ3 as well as other Citation aircraft.” Director of marketing and sales Mike Ulka is confident that the Latitude will be a hit with customers. “The target passenger would typically book a Challenger 300 due to its spacious midsize cabin. On a nonstop range below 2,300nm this new Latitude with the widest and highest cabin Cessna has ever built is a smart alternative,” he says. “The price per hour will beat any other midsize jet. We expect a lot of flights from Moscow, St Petersburg and Dubai to the Mediterranean sea region. We are planning a sales price per hour below 4.000 Euros net.” Air Hamburg has also signed a contract for a fourth Citation XLS+ which should arrive in March this year, following a second CJ3 in February, and will be present at the EBACE show this year to promote its ever-growing fleet. Cessna has only recently

announced the expected increased range capability of the Latitude. “Our customers asked, we answered,” says Trevor Esling, vp sales for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. “The increased range will give the aircraft more flexibility to fly a wider variety of missions and meet our customer requirements for comfort and performance. We’ve made this great aircraft even better.” The Latitude was first announced at the NBAA convention last year, and has been designed with space for a crew of two plus up to eight passengers. It features Garmin G5000 avionics, a six foot (1.83 metre) high passenger cabin from just behind the cockpit through to the rear lavatory area, a flat floor, and Cessna’s advanced Clairity cabin technology. Positioned between the Citation XLS+ and the Sovereign, the Latitude is expected to operate at airports with runways as short as 3,900 feet (1,189 metres), and to climb direct to 43,000 feet in 23 minutes. The latitude will have its own type rating (model C680A), due to its Garmin 5000 cockpit. First flight of the Latitude prototype is expected to be mid-year 2014, with FAA certification (Part 25) and entry into service expected in 2015. The aircraft is priced at US$14.9 million in 2012 .

JetNetherlands has expanded to open a new centre of operations in Eindhoven, where it will have its own hangar for up to four jets, and supporting offices and facilities. The company is headquartered in Amsterdam and has existing remote bases at Rotterdam and in Moscow. “We have appointed a station manager, and will base a Mustang, Piaggio Avanti, Challenger 850 and Citation VI over there,” says sales manager Rieko Dalhuisen. “These aircraft will be able to serve the demand for charter from Eindhoven. We will also base our daughter company AZ Exclusive Travel in those offices to continue to take care of vip demand for holidays, trips, excursions, cruises and so on. This will bring all JNL related offices there together in one space.” The company has also expanded its aircraft roster. “With these new aircraft JetNetherlands is becoming one of the larger operators in the Benelux serving our clients all kinds of aircraft, varying from very light to heavy jets,” adds Dalhuisen. The highly diverse fleet now comprises two Mustangs, Citations CJ2, CJ3, VI and two XLS, three Piaggio Avanti II, a Gulfstream 200, a Falcon 2000EX, Challenger 850 and privately operated Beech 400. One of the XLS jets and the Falcon are based in Moscow flying a long-term lease. Last summer the company moved into offices in the new GA terminal at Amsterdam Schiphol airport and now occupies the whole of the left first floor wing of the modern glass building. An executive lounge alongside is now in the pipeline. The growing fleet has enabled JetNetherlands to welcome back some former air crew who had left the company due to reductions a few years back, as well as fresh recruits. The maintenance, quality and

training departments each had to hire more people to get all the paperwork fixed and up to speed, while operations and sales also needed to grow as the company almost doubled its line up of jets. “It is all very challenging but all our personnel are working really hard as a team to make it happen,” says Dalhuisen. Operating in Moscow has brought its own problems: “In winter the temperatures mean we have to issue full winter gear to our crews,” he says. “Language is an issue too, so we operate with Russian cabin crew. And we need to operate with Russian navigators on board as some airfields are really different to the typical European destinations. We have two apartments in Moscow, one for the Falcon crews and one for our XLS crew.” In the coming year JetNetherlands aims to get all the aircraft onto its AOC. “I think we will have enough challenges operating and selling all these jets and keeping our aircraft owners and customers happy.”

NetJets Europe offers its own competitive finance

FAI opens office in Dubai German air ambulance specialist and charter operator FAI rent-a-jet AG has opened a new branch office in Dubai’s Jumeirah X2 Lake Tower. The outpost is headed by FAI’s Middle East representative Barbara Baumgartner, who is supported by two additional staff members. Through its Dubai office FAI will coordinate all its aviation activities throughout the Middle East, Far East and Asia. FAI-Dubai holds a local business licence to support and coordinate the charter activities of its German headquartered mother company, which holds a worldwide AOC. With a current fleet of 20 jets, FAI operates one of Europe’s largest fleets, employing more than 150 people at its home base in Nuremberg.

NetJets Europe has launched its own finance offering for customers buying fractional ownership, with rates said to be comparable to those offered by major financial institutions. Luis Pinto, cfo, says: “With the current economic climate, many businesses are working to avoid the large capital outlay traditionally associated with jet or even fractional jet ownership, especially given the scarcity of credit from the traditional lenders. However, corporates still need to fly to do business and remain competitive, and want the financial and tax benefits leasing can’t deliver.” The NetJets financing model involves a 25 per cent down payment, and interest rates vary depending on the amount of hours purchased by the customer. Backed by Berkshire Hathaway, NetJets Europe represents a secure line of credit for the term of the five year acquisition programmes. “NetJets Europe’s first innovation was one of delivering new ownership models that made more efficient use of client funds to let them purchase what they needed, when they needed it,” says Pinto. “Today, we’re letting customers pay for the assets how they want to. We’re already seeing a huge amount of interest from Eastern Europe and from large corporate clients.”

Hangar8 takes a stake in Maltese charter startup UK-based Hangar8 has entered into a joint venture to establish a charter base in Malta, at Skyparks Business Centre at Luqa airport. It will initially own 49% of the new operator, named Maleth Aero, and will have an option to take a majority stake in the future. Maleth Aero was granted its air operator certificate on January 20th, and publicly received its documentation in February during a ceremony at the airport attended by Hangar8 Malta ceo Michael O’Brien. Hangar8, the world’s largest charter operator of Hawker aircraft, has 17 other aircraft bases throughout Europe and in Africa and Asia. “The benefits of the link with Malta are that the country has positioned itself as a service-oriented and tax efficient jurisdiction to own and operate aircraft and therefore will be seen as an attractive destination for new owners,” says O’Brien. “The establishment of our joint venture with Hangar8 enables us to accelerate our original business plan by a couple of years.” Dustin Dryden, ceo of Hangar8 plc, adds: “This acquisition of a presence in the new corporate aviation market in Malta, at no cost to shareholders, illustrates the strength of the Hangar8 brand and allows us to participate in what we believe will become a significant aircraft register due to its location and its financial terms. Malta is now a very attractive destination for owners to register their aircraft, for whom we will provide the same high quality services, now including maintenance through our EASA 145 Approval, that

we provide to owners elsewhere.” Malta’s ambition is to develop its aviation sector in order to build one of the biggest aircraft registers in Europe as well as to explore and develop related areas such as aircraft maintenance, human resource

training in the sector, aircraft management services and other support areas. Dr Stanley Portelli, ceo of Transport Malta says: “We are proud to be associated with Hangar8 through their investment in Malta.

EBAS battles remote parking edict at Munich With the closure of Munich airport’s Ramp 11 on January 9th, local handler EBAS International reports that foreign operators are being forced to park some four kilometres away from the GAT. “It’s an impossible situation for the whole of business aviation,” says general manager Monika Petereit.

“Due to the construction work for the new Lufthansa satellite terminal, all foreign operators will be parked and handled at the remote parking position Ramp 7/8. “But business aviation is reliant on offering passengers quick and smooth handling, and this guarantee has therefore been removed.”

A V I A T I O N

EBAS International has made some progress, however, and is now able to use new parking positions for up to three aircraft at the new Ramp 12, which is located close to the GAT. By special request it is also able to perform quick turnarounds for passenger pick up and drop off directly at the GAT via Ramp 10.

Working with Michael and his team immediately gave us strong indications that we were dealing with a top-notch operator and we will endeavour to work on adding value to their business by being responsive and sensitive to their requirements.”

DEA to consolidate at Gamston Diamond Executive Aviation is to bring its operations together in one location at Nottinghamshire’s Gamston airport, where it will take a 2,500 sq ft office together with an 8,000 sq ft heated hangar. Several of DEA’s staff are relocating to the area and the company’s Keepers Cottage-based operations are expected to close by the end of March. DEA has already operated most of its aircraft from Gamston for the last two years, but expects that having flight crews, ground operations and maintenance co-located will further improve service and response times.

EBAA says emissions trading is still unfair The European Business Aviation Association has warned that the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS) risks being discriminatory on several grounds. It says that business aviation is treated unfairly compared with other modes of air transport. On average, business aircraft operators must acquire up to 96% of their historical emissions in permits compared with only 15% for airlines. Says EBAA president Brian Humphries: “It is deeply unfortunate that member states have so far decided against coupling the small emitters’ reporting tool with single point verification. In many cases, for smaller emitters the costs for monitoring and reporting, and particularly verification, far outweigh the costs linked to acquiring CO 2 permits. As such, the MRV procedure threatens to weaken the competitiveness of European business aircraft operators compared with non-EU competitors and other modes of transport.” EBAA also believes that the ruling of the European Court of Justice which decided that the EU ETS does not infringe on international customary law, is commendable in that it ensures equitable treatment between EU and non-EU stakeholders. “Unfortunately though, this only adds fuel to the fire, stirring up a range of protests. China and the US are just two prominent examples. It is questionable whether the mechanisms put in place by the commission to enforce compliance will be robust enough to resist widespread international resistance,” says EBAA. The timing of the implementation of ETS is also questioned. “The year 2011, and one expects the year 2012 as well, had and will record negative air transport figures amidst depressed demand and rising operating costs,” says Fabio Gamba, EBAA ceo. “The EU ETS is predicated on growth, and it becomes redundant if not harmful when growth is negative or lacklustre at best. ”

Berry celebrates fifty years aloft Bob Berry, chairman and md of the Pilatus Centre UK, has chalked up 50 years in aviation. Having started his own business, he found himself stuck in traffic on a motorway in 1962. “I knew then that I had to get above it all,” recalls Berry, pictured above. Within two weeks he had purchased his own four-seat Cessna in which he learnt to fly. After a long and varied career importing Commander and later Piper aircraft, Berry established

the Pilatus centre at Bournemouth in 2005. Looking to the future, he admits that he must follow his cardiac specialist’s advice and take things a little slower, and concludes: “The reluctance of banks to lend has certainly slowed sales down. “We sold six new and three preowned PC-12s in 2011, but could have doubled that number had potential customers had more support from the banks.”

Skydrift founder steps down from flourishing Norwich business Tabs Taberham, known throughout the industry and who founded Skydrift Limited at Norwich airport almost 25 years ago, has retired after 55 years in aviation. Taberham joined the RAF at the age of 17 as a trainee aircraft engine fitter, and served for 12 years. In the mid-1970s he arranged five De Havilland Herons to operate out of Norwich, each working on contract to oil exploration companies, and later moved them all to Aberdeen to continue with the contracts when exploration moved north. Realising the potential in oil and gas exploration in the southern North Sea, and requirements for aircraft charter for offshore crew rotations and transportation of drilling equipment, Taberham started Skydrift in March 1987. In 1992 he set up an operation in the Yemen to transport oil exploration workers from the capital Sanaa to various drilling sites throughout the country, which continues to this day. Following September 11th 2001, Tabs arranged

He managed the Scottish Fisheries Protection Agency’s aircraft for five years, and was also highly experienced in the transportation of dangerous goods, and munitions in particular. Taberham will continue to advise the company on dangerous goods, during a transition period of responsibility to Andrew Lee, commercial manager at Skydrift.

EUROPEAN BUSINESS AIR NEWS

Overall FBO rankings 1 Guernsey: Aiglle Flight Support 8.892

How the FBO Feedback system works EBAN magazine keeps track of every business jet, business twin and turbine helicopter in Europe and the Middle East, and builds its distribution database from individuals responsible for all these aircraft. Voting in the annual FBO Feedback survey is strictly restricted to this unique and valuable list of professionals. Each is able to use the survey form on the magazine mailer sheets throughout the second half of the year, or can vote online at any time through their own secure web page. Voters are excluded from ranking their own company’s facilities. Over 1,700 FBOs, handlers and agents are offered on the voting forms, and readers can vote for as many or as few as they like. A rating out of nine is given for facilities, service, staff and value, from which an average is taken. To minimise statistical aberrations only those facilities receiving at least point seven of one per cent of the total number of votes cast is included in our final league table. Many thanks to all those chief pilots, ops managers and aircraft owners who took the time to complete the survey – your votes have created a fascinating snapshot of FBO standards.

FBO NEWS IN BRIEF Signature is considering a worldwide version of its new Tailwins customer loyalty scheme, currently only available in the US, which rewards fuel purchases with luxury goods. The company opened its latest FBO in Frankfurt in December. Gama Aviation has taken responsibility for all business aircraft handling at Sharjah International airport with the creation of a brand new FBO. Ocean Sky at Prestwick is replacing its existing FBO with a brand new, carbon zero facility with two airside vip lounges and a duty free shop. The Dresden airport GAT is to have new hangars. Delta at Pisa plans to add its own passenger vip lounge. Universal at Stansted is about to fully refurbish its FBO, and a new state-of-the-art facility will open in late spring 2012.

Viviane Sigg (left) recently took over the management of ExecuJet’s Zurich FBO, but still has the support of Nicole Gut (right) who stepped up to become director of the company’s European FBOs. “Nicole shares her valuable insights with me through weekly meetings,” says Sigg. “Fortunately she is also based here in Zurich so I can go to her in case I have a specific question. I think clients can sense that we are not only very professional but we also really like doing our jobs. We are having fun delivering the best service we can offer!” ExecuJet Europe performed very strongly in our survey, with three locations in the top ten. In 2011 the company added new FBOs at Barcelona, Gerona, Ibiza, Palma, Valencia and Istanbul, plus a further German base in Frankfurt and its first full service base in the UK at Cambridge. It is currently evaluating further opportunities in Spain and the Middle East.

It’s tough at the top as readers rate the region’s FBOs highly This is the twentieth annual FBO Feedback survey, and EBAN’s aircraft operating readers have once again delivered some surprising conclusions. The top ten this year includes no fewer than nine new entries, and these are a mix of brand-new (DhabiJet) and long-established handlers; of single locations and members of chains; and of European and Middle Eastern companies. Aiglle Flight Support on the island of Guernsey triumphed well ahead of the field, having been placed

second last year, while Sardinia’s Eccelsa was the runner up – topping the creditable fourth place achieved in 2009. Overall scores were higher this year, as eight FBOs achieved over eight marks, compared with just three in the 2011 survey. Signature Flight Support at Luton finished twentieth both last year and this, but needed a very much improved score, from 6.635 to 7.281, to retain this position.

In this feature we report on some of the highest ranking companies, run through the latest news from FBOs and handlers, and provide our usual full survey of contact information and facilities.

Vnukovo – 3

is considered to be the biggest and the busiest airport for business aviation in Eastern Europe. It is one of the most popular and convenient airports for VIP passengers in Europe. After huge investment Vnukovo – 3 has become a highly developed FBO. It has its own operational apron with a full set of technical equipment and machinery. The FBO has two terminals which can serve up to 100 passengers per hour (40 for domestic and 60 for international flights), with a nice panoramic view of the apron. We are also glad to announce an extraordinary service called VIS. “Vipport Information Service” which has been created to provide the ability to track in real time mode aircraft ground handling status within Vnukovo – 3 facilities, such as flight status, ground handling, passengers and baggage handling. One of the most important advantages of the system is the ability to get actual current flight information distantly. Also you are able to see the volume of services provided for your flight. As the leading business aviation center Vnukovo – 3 will always do its best for its clients.

EUROPEAN BUSINESS AIR NEWS

General manager Ian Arnold and assistant general manager Roger Sweet, survey-topping Aiglle’s two longest serving employees.

Our top five FBOs invest in facilities, but it is customer service that remains key As experienced pilots and aircraft owners themselves, Aiglle Flight Support’s Simon Fawcett and fellow joint managing director Richard Battersby have a first-hand perspective on what it takes to provide top rated FBO services. But it is the hard work of their Guernseybased team that they credit with the company winning this year’s EBAN reader feedback survey.

Eccelsa Aviation’s Francesco Cossu has high hopes for 2012.

“We are absolutely thrilled to win this prestigious award,” says Fawcett. “Taking second place last year made our small, close-knit team more determined than ever to go that extra mile. There has been a real concerted effort over the past twelve months on delivering service excellence to our customers and it is a real credit to all that hard work and dedication that we’ve won this award.” The company’s facility offers 30,000 sq ft of modern, climate controlled hangar space and a range

FBO NEWS IN BRIEF BIRK Reykjavik plans on opening an FBO at Keflavik airport (BIKF) in summer 2012. Biggin Hill Executive has a new 50,000 sq ft parking hangar now open at the terminal, up to BBJ/ACJ size. Coventry Airport is under development with hangarage and office opportunities for private and business organisations.

of premium facilities to passengers, including lounges, a conference room, weather and flight planning computer, baggage handling and customs and immigration facilitation, slot co-ordination, ramp access for vehicles, hotel, taxi and hire car booking, fuelling assistance, aircraft washing and valeting. “One feature that is always welcomed is Aiglle’s crew car which is available free of charge to crews on a lay over,” says Fawcett. Aiglle was formed in 2000 when a consortium of the hangar customers took the business over following the death of the hangar’s founder. The Eccelsa FBO at Olbia was voted second by EBAN readers this year. “In 2010 and 2011 we registered interesting positive growth again and the expectations are positive also for 2012, although the situation in Italy appears to be rather uncertain,” says manager Francesco Cossu. Business on Sardinia is strongly seasonal, ranging from over 150 aircraft movements a day in the summer to only a few movements in the winter. Coping with such a large swing provides considerable challenges. “We work very actively on personnel selection, training and motivation,” says Cossu. To improve all-weather access Geasar SpA, which owns both the airport itself as well as Eccelsa Aviation, has started work extending the runway to 2,700 metres, and expects this to be completed by summer 2014. The Eccelsa terminal features a Oxfordjet will extensively upgrade its capabilities for the 2012 Olympics period, including 06:00-midnight capability. Later in the year, the longer hours and higher fire category as standard is anticipated. ATA Milan will add a crew rest room (to help with flight time limitation rules) and crew shower. The company is planning further locations at Venice and Catania. Euro Jet Intercontinental at Prague expects the upcoming

business centre, crew resting room, passenger lounge, elegant restaurant, bar and coffee shop, vvip lounge, private car parking, and six luxury shops including Royal Cashmere, de Grisogono, StarDust, Cucinelli and Ermenegildo Zegna. London-Stansted FBO Inflite is delighted to have been ranked in third place, but is not resting on its laurels. A new terminal is due to be completed in May this year. Says director of the family-run business Penny Stephens: “Even though we enlarged and redecorated our existing facility three years ago, it is important to keep up with the times and to maintain or improve standards. It has always been my belief that arriving at an FBO for either passengers or crew, should be the same experience as arriving at a 5+ star hotel. With this in mind, we have designed our new terminal to enable us to deliver that luxury hotel experience.” Such investment in facilities has seen newly-formed DhabiJet at Al Bateen Executive airport make its European Football Championship in Poland and Ukraine to contribute to its growth. The company says it is the only ground handling support company located in Pristina, Kosovo. Westair at Shannon is expecting at least a 200% increase in traffic since teaming up with JetEx. The European Business Aviation Association is to update its handling code of conduct. A final working group will be held at the FBO Forum in Cascais this month.

survey debut at number four. “We are thrilled that DhabiJet, less than one-year old, has entered the premier league of FBO operators, a ringing endorsement for the investment we have made to enhance our services and facilities for flight crew and the commitment and dedication of our team, led by senior director Pauline Smith,” said Al Bateen general manager Steve Jones. Al Bateen’s accomplishment comes hard on the heels of a record year which saw it record more than a 50% increase in visiting business aviation traffic. The airport attracted 124 new first time international business aviation customers too. DhabiJet’s modern two-storey crew lounge, inaugurated in November, is now fully operational. The new facility combines work areas to carry out crew briefings and flight planning, and lounge areas to entertain and relax. The top floor is occupied by Al Bateen’s flight operations department and a briefing room. The ground floor is entirely dedicated to crew, featuring a lounge

area with satellite TV, snooze room, work station, meeting room, pantry, shower facility and a prayer room. But work is not yet finished. The coming year is expected to see the refurbishment of several large hangars for MRO stations for large or very large business aircraft; the completion of a second DhabiJet passenger lounge; the completion of an on-site executive in-flight catering centre operated by Executive Gourmet, part of the Gate Gourmet Group; and the development of high end retail sales within the vvip lounges. “What matters most is the attention to detail and no stone is left unturned to ensure that whatever the customer’s needs and expectations are, we go that extra distance to exceed their expectations,” says Pauline Smith. “I am optimistic that, based upon the foundations laid in 2011 and the new projects already planned, we will continue to increase our market share in the coming year. The challenging international economic environment and tough competition means we have to continue to improve everything we do if we are to increase our growth and reputation internationally, which is our stated aim.” Completing our readers’ favourite five is Biggin Hill Executive Handling. Robert Walters, business development manager, says: “Our Executive Handling team are thrilled by this recognition of their dedicated efforts to provide a high quality and personal FBO service. The highranking result in the survey is all the more encouraging as it exclusively reflects choice and preference directly from the customer.” The FBO service at Biggin Hill Airport has been boosted with the opening of a 50,000 sq ft hangar, with a range of serviced offices in support, which now offers secure short or long term hangarage up to BBJ or ACJ size. “We shall not forget that customers have a choice – a driving force for any service-related business,” adds Walters.

Penny Stephens’ Inflite is investing in further facilities this year.

EUROPEAN BUSINESS AIR NEWS

CHARTER BROKER NEWS... PJC recruits managing director for Middle East Private Jet Charter has appointed Ross Kelly as managing director for the Middle East. Involved in the aviation business for the past 11 years, Kelly worked for Aer Arann in operations for four years and until recently for Starair in Ireland. He is based in Dubai.

Air Charter Service charity funds IT in India In 2011 Air Charter Service says it raised more than $77,000 for its chosen charities – HEAL, Cancer Research UK, The Shooting Star Children’s Hospice, The Willow foundation and The International Youth Arts Foundation. ACS has a dedicated committee helping to organise an array of fund-raising events. All the money raised by staff is matched by the company, doubling the total amount. One of the charities that benefitted from the money raised, HEAL, provides shelter, support, education and healthcare to some of the world’s poorest children, with the aim of helping 10,000 young people ‘escape the poverty trap’ by 2015. ACS funded the building of an IT block within HEAL’s new selfsustaining village for orphans in Thotapally, India. Chris and Tina Leach, respectively ACS chairman and company secretary, recently visited the site and described what they saw as “absolutely inspiring”. Looking forward to 2012, Tina, who heads up the ACS charity committee, is confident that ACS can provide yet more support to

HEAL and the company’s other charities: “We are immensely proud that we can contribute to such wonderful causes. 2011 was a brilliant year for ACS, but I believe we can do even more this year.”

BACA roster reaches an all-time high The Baltic Air Charter Association now has an all-time high number of members, reports chairman Dick Gilbert in his annual review. Approximately a quarter of attendees at the association’s lunch event now fly in from elsewhere in Europe, reflecting a particularly sharp increase in international membership. BACA plans to host open days at Biggin Hill and Oxford airports during 2012, and will repeat its popular golf tournament in June. During the coming year it will also be looking for ways to increase the use of its escrow financial service, which has had a lower utilisation than expected so far.

Marianne makes a Smart move Smart Aviation has appointed Marianne Irving to its broking team as senior sales executive. Irving has worked in the air charter industry for over 20 years and has executed hundreds of successful charter contracts on behalf of a wide range of clients, mainly from the conference and incentive, automotive, government and military sectors. Smart Aviation sales director Matthew Savage comments: “The added skills, expertise and credibility that Marianne brings to complement the team makes this a very exciting appointment.”

Air Partner, the global private jet specialist, is sponsoring Everton Football Club’s Russian midfielder Diniyar Bilyaletdinov. “Air Partner has close links with various sectors of the sports industry and a long history of organising private charter flights to and from Russia,” said David Macdonald, Air Partner Private Jets director. “As we are very active in Russia and have Moscow-based account management providing local personal services for the company’s private jet ad hoc and JetCard membership clients, it seemed appropriate to sponsor a popular and prominent Russian player in support of our many clients who follow Diniyar in the English Premier League.” Stop Press: In the January transfer window, Diniyar moved back to Russia – but Air Partner’s relationship with Everton continues.

The concrete for the foundations and apron will be ready for pouring in February and the steel for the building itself will be arriving in March in time for completion in late summer 2012.

Holroyd seeks your support for double marathon In April of this year Will Holroyd, Harrods Aviation sales and marketing director, will be tackling his toughest personal physical challenge to date. He plans to run the Brighton Marathon one Sunday followed by the world famous London Marathon the next. “I reach the grand age of 40 this year and wanted to celebrate this milestone by doing something I would remember for ever,” says Holroyd. “I also wanted to see if I could raise as much money as possible for a great charity. I chose the UK-based charity Whizz-Kidz as I believe they make a real, long lasting difference to the lives of thousands of disabled children. “The biggest challenge is that I have given up drinking for four months to help with the training, so that’s a sober NBAA IOC and Cannes for me this year.” Holroyd is appealing to all his aviation friends to consider making a donation in support of the 52.2 miles he will be running, and the hundreds of early morning hours he will be putting in during the training.
