Rizon orders Learjet 85 the ‘aircraft for all seasons’ Four new Learjet 85s have been ordered by Bahrain-headquartered Rizon. Will Curtis, ceo, says: “The Learjet 85 will be an aircraft for all seasons for Rizon – serving the Middle East in the winter and Europe in the summer – mirroring the travel trends of Rizon’s regular clients. It has all the benefits of the excellent Learjet 45 which has been such a popular charter aircraft, only with more space.” Ultimately, he says, Rizon expects to base two of the Learjet 85s permanently in the UK. “The Learjet 85 is ideally sized for us to support our growing charter activity in the Middle East and to expand our activity into Europe. The UK is an important base for us.” Curtis points out that the Learjet 85 can fly up to eight passengers over a 3,000 nm range. The first is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2009 and will join Rizon’s three Challenger 605s. Rizon has also ordered a Global 5000 – due to arrive in 2011 – and a second Hawker 900XP, scheduled for delivery in April 2009. And, in September, Rizon will open a new $20 million MRO and FBO facility at London Biggin Hill. Rizon, which has offices in the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain, celebrates its second anniversary as a company in April. “We are focused on Asia, India, Russia and Africa as well as the Middle East and Europe,” Curtis says. The company will also expand its services establishing an aircraft trading and management arm and an aviation training college specifically aimed at growing the skills base of AGCC nationals, Curtis says. Plans to become an authorised service centre for various OEMs for operators in the Arab Gulf, Middle East and Indian subcontinent are being advanced in both Bahrain and London. Rizon also plans to bring five converted CRJ200 airliners into service to compete cost-effectively in the midsize and super midsize sectors.

Albena chooses TBM 850 as new turboprops compete with VLJs Prima Finance EAD, part of the Bulgarian group Albena Invest Holding plc, is acquiring a TBM 850 and Socata believes that the order will kick start demand for new generation turboprops in the country. Listed on the Sofia stock market, Albena is one of the five largest holding companies in Bulgaria with a capital of €60 million. The group manages 15 companies operating in sectors ranging from tourism to transport and from furniture manufacturing to building contracting. The company says that the TBM 850 will add to its business efficiency. “It is the fastest civilian single engine turboprop with a maximum cruising speed of 593 km/h at flight level 260 in ISA.” Albena confirms it has chosen an 850 hp version of the sixseat aircraft. “The TBM 850 combines the cruising speed and travel times of a light jet with economical operating costs and a lower environmental signature. Its ability to operate from small airfields, 1,500 nm maximum range and increased payload were factors in our decision.” The group is the legal successor of

TBM 850: cost-effective but Aviostart may acquire a jet.

Albena Invest Privatisation Fund created in 1996 to privatise stateowned companies. At its launch, 130,000 Bulgarians purchased stock. Veselin Nedev, marketing and sales manager for the Sofia-based Aviostart Airlines, confirms that the cost-effectiveness of turboprops makes them popular in Bulgaria. Aviostart, which operates a P180 Avanti and was established ten years ago, is considering acquiring an additional turboprop and perhaps a jet. Socata reports that it delivered 60 TBM 850s in 2008 bringing total sales to 148 units operated by customers since the model was introduced less than two years ago.

“It is a significant addition to the 323 TBM 700s delivered since the beginning of the program in 1990,” says Nicolas Chabbert, EADS Socata vp sales and marketing. European deliveries recently increased to 20 per cent share of the global total. Jean-Michel Léonard, Socata president, says: “A decline of the turboprop was predicted due to the advent of VLJs but more and more of the small and medium business jet owners are now considering the TBM 850 as the right alternative to a light jet or a VLJ which are more expensive aircraft to operate.” He predicts: “The current economic conditions will create some more opportunities for the TBM 850 which has an excellent quality-price ratio and very low operating costs.” Chabbert says Albena’s decision could open new doors for turboprops in the emerging eastern European business aviation markets. Meanwhile Aviostart’s Nedev adds: “We have a number of plans for 2009 and 2010 but they are not yet finalised. However, despite the popularity of turboprops we are considering adding a jet because the demand is there.”

DC Aviation selects a 45XR to fill demand-led ‘Learjet gap’ Germany’s DC Aviation has added a Learjet 45XR to boost its private jet fleet to 32 aircraft. The Stuttgart company, which has given priority to expanding its Gulfstream operations (EBAN September 2008) has four Learjet 40s and two Learjet 60s in operation. “With its improved performance the Learjet 45XR fills the gap between the Learjet 40 and the Learjet 60,” says sales director Jonas Kraft. “With a maximum cruising range of 1,833 nm, it is a dynamic business jet that can carry up to eight passengers non-stop from Moscow to Milan in just 3:10 hours or three passengers from

London Luton to Istanbul in 3:20 hours.” Kraft adds: “What is so special about the Learjet 45XR, apart from the cruising range, is the high rate of acceleration and time-to-climb. In less than 25 minutes it climbs at 535 mph to 43,000 ft in less than 25 minutes and reaches a comfortable cruising height free of turbulence at 51,000 ft. What is more, with its so-called ‘hot and high’ ability it is also able to take off at high temperatures from very short runways, such as London for example. This unique flexibility is definitely much appreciated by our Learjet clientele. Dynamics and speed rank second only to safety for many of our business clients.” Steffen Fries, new coo, says the clients also like the Learjet cabins which include comfortable club armchairs, an open-plan kitchen, Air Show, satellite telephone, CD/DVD and a separate toilet. DC Aviation took delivery of a G450 and a G550 last year. “The expansion of our Gulfstream fleet to three G550s and two G450s, is in response to increased client demand for long-range services,” says Dieter Heinen, ceo.

Capital Aviation beats 11 rivals to land three-year aeromedical contract UK-based Capital Aviation has won a three-year contract to provide the Channel Island of Jersey with aeromedical charter services. Capital Aviation, which operates a total of eight PA31 Chieftains and Super King Airs, utilises the Lifeport Patient Loading System which is fitted in both types of aircraft. “This combination of aircraft and equipment allows us to safely and cost-effectively carry all types of patient, including neonatal and other paediatric patients and the attending medical staff in the most costeffective manner,” says Capt. Malcolm Humphries who launched the company in 1991. “Our service consciously addresses the issue of whether patients with specific medical conditions can support pressurised transfer or not.” He adds: “The company is proud and delighted to have won this highly prestigious contract and we are continuing to work with the Jersey health and social services department to provide a patient transfer regime which we believe will help to save even more lives and provide the ultimate in medical air transfer.” The department says it has worked hard to consolidate and formalise the aeromedical requirements for the transfer of Jersey patients to and from the UK. It says that 3,500 to 4,000 seats are booked annually on scheduled flights so that patients can attend hospitals in the U.K. for planned and elective care, including some outpatient consultations. For patients that are unable to travel scheduled, normally those whose condition is acute or

already an emergency, the only option is private charter or air ambulance flights. In 2001, 94 charter flights were used to transfer patients to and from Jersey but this increased to 238 flights in 2007 and around 300 in 2008. “It is anticipated that there will be year-on-year growth in this area,” the department adds. A working party was formed in 2004 to explore and develop Jersey’s aeromedical transfer service with particular focus on charter flights. The working party determined that Jersey needed a service that was more responsive, cost-effective and developed around the specific needs of the island. It was decided to appoint a single charter aircraft operator. “Since then a tendering process has taken place, which attracted interest from 12 aeromedical companies. This number was gradually reduced through a rigorous process and led to Capital Aviation being awarded a three-year contract,” the department says.

Capital Aviation has provided air charter, including aeromedical services, into and out of Jersey for over 17 years. The department says: “The high quality of Capital Aviation’s services, personnel, aircraft, maintenance standards and safety procedures – together with its ability to meet the fast turnaround times required by the nature of transferring critically ill patients – were all key factors in the company’s appointment.” Andrew Woodward, consultant for anaesthesia and critical care, says: “The new processes and the close working relationship with Capital Aviation is allowing the development of a state-of-the-art regime delivering the best possible care for Jersey patients and which we believe will become the benchmark for patient transfers across Europe.” The company’s major charter focus is medium haul, into and around Europe for executive charter and air ambulance. Its operating bases in Jersey, Exeter and Plymouth are well placed to service demand to destinations ranging from France and Belgium to Greece and Ireland, Capt. Humphries says.

Exceptional mission highlights rising demand for repatriation into Europe Demand for medical repatriation flights to Europe from postings in Africa are growing with European Air Ambulance (EAA) reporting a successful conclusion to a recent “exceptional” mission. A three month old girl, suffering from a life-threatening illness, had to be flown from Burundi to a clinic in Hanover for medical treatment with dispatchers of the Mission Control Center (MCC) in Rheinmünster organising the aviation and medical logistics. Patrick Schomaker, EAA director of sales and marketing, says that the daughter of a German family seemed in good health after being born but later caught an infection. “Due to the difficult medical situation in Africa, no paediatrician was available to make an exact diagnosis. As the condition of the child became dramatically worse, medical treatment in Germany was urgent.” The baby was repatriated on a Luxembourg Air Rescue (LAR) Learjet 35A ambulance accompanied by a paediatrician from the Children’s Clinic of Mannheim, a paramedic of the DRF Luftrettung and an intensive care nurse from LAR. The MCC checked flight-relevant information and then the dispatchers organised overfly and landing permits before the Learjet 35A left Luxembourg with the five crew members. The 10hour flight involved two fuel stops in

Djerba, Tunisia, and N’Djamena, Chad. The crew arrived in Burundi the following day and the medical crew was picked up from the airport and transported directly to the parents’ house. “The paediatrician and the paramedic from the DRF Luftrettung found a very weak, dehydrated infant suffering from an infection,” says

Schomaker. “Infusions were given and vital functions monitored. Without the infant’s medical stabilisation the repatriation to Germany would not have been possible.” The paediatrician said that a cardiac defect could not be excluded after a first examination. The medical crew kept the physician in the clinic in

Hanover in constant touch about the baby’s condition so that appropriate arrangements could be made ready for the arrival in Hanover. The baby’s mother accompanied her daughter on the flight and the MCC arranged an immediate transfer by an ambulance to the clinic where the baby underwent heart surgery.

Bonair looks ahead to Sovereign delivery Turkey’s Bonair expects business to slow in 2009 but is still confidently adding a Cessna Sovereign to its fleet in 2011 to join the XLS which became the 1,000th Cessna jet operational in Europe (photo page 1). Bonair president Ates Hanibu says: “Both aircraft will be a valuable additions and will complement our Bravo, Caravan Amphibian and three Cessna 172s.” The new aircraft will be deployed to meet demand in Europe, the CIS, Africa and the Middle East. “We chose the aircraft for their cabin size, ease of maintenance and competitive operational cost,” Hanibu adds. “Compared to previous years we expect the coming year to be relatively quiet and attracting new business might be harder work, but we are a strong company that is always able to count on having the pilots, cabin and ground staff that we need when we need them.” Bonair was established in 1989 as a flying school and launched its charter service in 1994. It orders new rather than pre-owned aircraft and the company believes that, despite the economic downturn, it can continue to grow business through hard work. “We enjoy a good level of referrals through brokers,” says Hanibu.

Royal Jet now offers highly trained chefs on board Royal Jet, headquartered in Abu Dhabi, has further upgraded its food and service levels after employing brand and service consultancy Performa Global. Shane O’Hare, ceo, says: “All cabin crew, sales teams and those working at Royal Jet’s FBO have been through special retraining. We have recruited highly qualified chefs with a pedigree from some of the world’s top hotels and restaurants. They have recently

completed a comprehensive review process of the on-board cuisine, resulting in newly introduced menus after months of brainstorming, experimenting with recipes, testing, tasting and finally training the catering staff as to the intricacies involved in each dish. “Royal Jet can even arrange for one of its highly trained and experienced chefs to travel with the guests for the duration of their trip.”

Comlux adds third AOC for ‘seamless’ services Comlux has gained a Maltese AOC which enables it to fly freely between all EU member states. “This third AOC complements Comlux’s existing Swiss and Kazakh AOCs,” says Richard Gaona, president and ceo. “Malta has a fast developing expertise in aircraft maintenance and other services such as banking and legal support.” The new Comlux Malta daughter company has registered an Airbus ACJ and is registering other vvip-configured aircraft for charter operations. The Comlux Aviation fleet currently consists of Airbus and Bombardier aircraft. Richard Gaona says: “We are now able to operate from any EU airport offering our customers seamless convenience and comfort. Our passengers will all benefit from the convenience with which Comlux can now arrange a fast and complex travel schedule, including EU and non-EU travel destinations”. Comlux Aviation, the VVIP charter division of Comlux, has ordered a second A320 for its executive operation. “The new A320 will help to meet demand from the important Middle East market, and complements an A318 Elite and an ACJ that are already operated on VVIP charters by Comlux,” says Gaona. Comlux has now placed orders for a total of nine aircraft, comprising four A318 Elites, two ACJs, two A320 Prestiges and one A330-200 Prestige. “We were one of the first to recognise the need for even more space and comfort than traditional

Greece’s MIG acquires large stake in FAI The Marfin Investment Group (MIG) of Greece has acquired a 49.9 per cent stake in German air ambulance operator FAI rent-a-jet AG from the Axtmann family holding company. Siegfried Axtmann, FAI ceo and founder, says that the company will also benefit from fleet expansion in 2009. FAI is expecting delivery of jet No. 11 in March. The factory new Falcon 900DX EASy will be offered to the high-end charter market and, says FAI, will be available for showing on EBACE’s static display in May 2009. The company has acquired a fifth Learjet 55 giving it a total of 10 Learjets. Four are operating in Africa under long-term NGO-charter contracts, one, a Learjet 60, is managed for its private owner while two Learjet 35As, two Learjet 55s and a Learjet 60, are operating as dedicated air ambulances out of FAI’s Nürnberg, Germany, home base.

business jets, and because the ACJ family has the widest and tallest cabin in its class, we can offer a lot more than other charter companies,” says the head of Comlux Aviation’s VVIP charter division Ettore Rodaro. “The outstanding reliability of

our Airbus ACJ family is another plus that our customers appreciate, and we can also offer them a lot of experience in managing their VIP Airbus aircraft,” he adds. Comlux Aviation has operated its first Airbus ACJ for several years, and

last year became the first to put the A318 Elite into service, flying it an impressive 1,200 hours in its first year. Rodaro says: “In addition to the widest cabin in its class, Airbus’ ACJ family also provides a very quiet environment.”

Swiss PrivateAviation goes for CJ3s and XLS+ Swiss PrivateAviation is taking delivery of two CJ3s and two XLS+ in March. “There might be other aircraft coming into our fleet but only the four mentioned are certain at the moment,” says Claudia Keller, postholder ground operations.

Austrian-based Avcon Jet has appointed an entrepreneur and a former finance minister to its supervisory board as it brings a Challenger 300 based in Kiev into operation. Alexander Vagacs, ceo, says the expansion of the fleet to 14 aircraft and the addition of former finance minister of Austria Andreas Staribacher and the entrepreneur Erwin Soravia will give Avcon Jet an added business edge. “We have made the right decisions at the right time, and have drawn our attention to markets like Eastern Europe and the Middle East which are still growing, even in the momentary situation”, says Vagacs. “The extension of our supervisory board underlines our effort to invest in the future of this company.” He adds: “Erwin Soravia is one of the most influential and successful entrepreneurs in central, southern and eastern Europe. The Soravia Group is a company with many years experience in the real estate development and investment sectors. Its many and varied projects, either already realised or currently in development, range from multi-purpose building complexes, hotels and innovative business start-ups such as Megaboard

Vagacs says the Challenger 300 is configured for up to eight passengers in a club and couch seating arrangement and a cabin with standup headroom. The aircraft which was financed by Hypo SüdLeasing joins the G150 and CJ2+ Avcon already operates. Peter Scholz of Hypo SüdLeasing says: “I am sure that the brand new Challenger 300 will have the same utilisation as the rest of Avcon Jet’s fleet – and that means far beyond the average of the industry.”

LEA offers in-flight spa service and calls in the ‘heavy mob’ to add weight to long haul service London Executive Aviation (LEA) says it is to become the first charter operator in Europe to offer in-flight beauty therapies and massages routinely to its customers. “Our new in-flight spa service, which is to be offered at no extra charge, really makes the experience of private air travel even more relaxing and refreshing,” says md George Galanopoulos. The company says highly experienced clinicians will be available on its Challenger 300 and Legacy 600 aircraft to provide treatments designed to relieve stress, boost circulation, recharge the immune system and fight any effects of dehydration. “Customers will be able to choose from a range of treatments designed for men and women alike, such as a head and shoulder massage to recover from a hectic day of meetings, or a facial and manicure to set the tone for a wedding anniversary trip or other special occasion. All beauty products to be used by LEA beauticians contain only naturally coloured vegan organic ingredients.” LEA has added a further Citation Excel to its AOC. “We sourced the new aircraft from another operator, acting on behalf of a long-standing charter customer who has made the step up to full aircraft ownership,” says Galanopoulos. LEA is to provide full aircraft management services for the jet which is being chartered from the company’s new base at Stansted. It is configured to carry up to nine passengers, has a maximum range of 1,800 nm and a top speed of 480 mph.

LEA’s ‘heavy mob’ – the Falcon 900EX with Capt. Paul Street, stewardess Sheila Greenwood and first officer James Welbourne.

The Excel joins three others presently operated by LEA. “The Excel is an excellent choice for an owner because it is so well regarded in the charter market,” says Galanopoulos. “The Excel’s success owes much to its versatility. Groups who need something larger than a Mustang are excellently served in an Excel, but at a price that still represents very

good value. Meanwhile, customers who typically use large cabin aircraft are also very much at home should they want to downsize for a particular journey.” He advises: “This is an excellent time to purchase a used private aircraft, as prices have softened significantly in recent months. We would advise anyone contemplating a

purchase to act now, because the savings you make on a lower purchase price will materially reduce your total ownership costs in subsequent years.” LEA has added non-stop transatlantic range to its capabilities with the addition of a Dassault Falcon 900EX to its fast growing fleet. It has entered service based at London Luton.

Icelandic Coastguard upgrades to Dash 8 The Icelandic Coastguard, facing growing threats to its environment and fishing grounds, is replacing its ageing Fokker F-27 with a specially modified Dash 8 Q300. Georg Larusson, director general says: “Compared to the existing aircraft, the Dash 8 Q300 will offer significantly higher mission availability at a much lower operating cost. Its speed and endurance will shorten transit times and give more time on station and the Q300’s proprietary Active Noise and Vibration Suppression system will provide a superior working environment for Iceland’s coastguard crews.” Field Aviation is outfitting the aircraft with maritime search radar, side looking radar and an electrooptical/infrared pod. All sensors will feed into an integrated data handling system from L-3 Communications – Integrated Systems. An air-operable rear door will allow crews to paradrop personnel, deploy location flares, oil sampling buoys and larger items such as inflatable life rafts while on mission patrol. Joar Gronlund, Field Aviation coo, says: “The aircraft is scheduled to be converted to the full Icelandic MSA configuration at our Toronto facility for completion in July 2009.” To date, Field Aviation, based in Toronto, Ontario and Calgary, Alberta, has sales or options for 29 MSAs worldwide using the popular Dash 8 series aircraft. A total of 17 have been delivered to date.

Familiar pair once again top Europe’s league of champion FBOs EBAN’s qualified, aircraft-operating readers are nothing if not consistent, electing Mallorcair and TAG Farnborough as the top rated specialist business aviation handlers in Europe and the Middle East again. But it was a closer-run affair this year, with Multiflight putting up a brave bid for the top and the resort handlers Aviation Beauport and Eccelsa scoring highly to complete the leading five.

We report on some of the winners here, and in the following pages we detail the facilities on offer around the continent. We have included listings for all those which responded to our many requests for information, and we also offer basic information about every handler on our web site at www.handbook.aero. Between September 2008 and January this year our voters were able to rank any number of FBOs – some

taking the time to provide scores for over thirty! We’d like to express our thanks to all those who took part for creating, once again, such a revealing snapshot of the industry. We asked for a score out of nine for each of three categories; facilities, services and staff. To do well, an FBO must have good infrastructure, meet every customer need, and have highly trained and motivated people on the ground. The scores in our table are an

average of the three categories. There are excellent specialist handlers which do not feature in the list simply because they did not receive enough votes to meet our statistical minima, so for 2010 we are going to start the voting process earlier. Look out for our emails or for the voting form on the back of your mailing address sheet from June 2009 and you can help shape the rankings for the next EBAN survey!

In order to ensure that the voting system is fair and that every EBAN reader has the opportunity to vote for their favourite FBOs, each aircraft-operating reader was provided with a personalised web page as well as forms on our magazine mailing sheets, on which to cast votes. To be eligible for inclusion on the rankings table, each FBO had to accrue at least point seven of one per cent of the total votes cast, thereby minimising statistical aberrations. Although the high ranking handling agents deserve recognition for their excellent results, there were many FBOs which simply did not receive a high enough proportion of the votes to become eligible for inclusion.

Eccelsa team adds to island charm of Sardinia Private aircraft love visiting islands as evidenced by the top five popularity among EBAN readers of FBOs in Mallorca, Jersey and Sardinia. But Francesco Cossu, gm, says that it is the quality of staff at Olbia as well as the charm of Sardinia that has propelled Eccelsa to joint fourth this year. “We have a very good team here,” he says. “That makes the difference. My constant message is that ‘a man’s vision without a team remains a dream’.” Located on the north east coast of Sardinia, close to Costa Smeralda, Eccelsa Aviation operates a 24-7 dedicated private aviation terminal at Olbia airport. “The Eccelsa team is capable of assisting a vast range of aircraft from the smallest single piston engine to a Boeing 747 or Boeing 777. The airport does not control access by means of slots restriction or other

Eccelsa: investing heavily

limitations. And we are only minutes from world famous beaches, marinas, golf courses and convention centres.” Cossu says that Eccelsa will organise everything that is required down to the smallest detail. “Our concierge service coordinates

every aspect of the visit, including aircraft and helicopter charter, hangarage, hotel accommodation, inflight catering, limousine service, luxury car rental, security service and yacht rental.” He agrees that smaller FBOs have the advantage over those who handle much larger numbers but Eccelsa is also investing heavily in new facilities scheduled to come into operation in April 2009. “We obviously appreciate that 2009 is unlikely to be as good as 2008 but we have the utmost confidence in the private aviation sector,” Cossu says. “The new facility will improve ramp handling and expand our space available to 5,000 square metres which is much bigger than we have now.” Olbia regularly receives visits from Boeings that are configured with several bedrooms.


EUROPEAN BUSINESS AIR NEWS

Pilots and crew enjoy a ‘home from home’ in Leeds, Jersey, Sardinia and Mallorca Smaller FBOs took this year’s EBAN survey honours by storm although TAG London Farnborough again proved that companies with very much larger throughput can compete through a combination of top facilities and high service standards. But third-placed Multiflight (Leeds Bradford), fourth-placed Aviation Beauport ( Jersey) and fifth-placed Eccelsa Aviation (Olbia, Sardinia) reinforced the impression, established by the ever-popular Mallorcair over five years, that smaller FBOs are providing an almost unbeatable level of personal service. Mallorcair was voted best FBO for the fifth year running and TAG London Farnborough preserved its second place but the delight of the top two was at least equalled at Multiflight which moved up to third from 17th last year. The secret of success in gaining the edge in voting is to make pilots and crew feel that the FBO is a home from home and they are welcomed as part of a happy family. “A strong focus on service and always going that extra mile for clients is what helped secure the Multiflight FBO at Leeds Bradford International Airport third place in the latest EBAN FBO survey,” says handling manager Heather Cawthorne. “Being voted third makes us extremely proud and is testament to the dedication and hard work of the Multiflight FBO team and our great attention to clients’ needs.” Multiflight’s FBO team staff, determined to beat growing competition from airports in its UK catchment region, are prepared to turn personal shoppers for clients. She adds: “Nothing is ever too much trouble for the Multiflight FBO team. They will search the length and breadth of Yorkshire for a particular wine for a client and have even sent a taxi to collect a preferred newspaper when they were unable to locate it locally for another client.” Cawthorne points out: “We are a small, dedicated FBO team and we are able to react and respond quickly to the needs of clients. We do get a significant amount of repeat business and this means that we establish a relationship with clients and many have become Multiflight friends over the years.” But Cawthorne stresses that it is

vital to continue to maintain a strong customer focus and offer that personal touch whenever it is required. “We always aim to please and our continuing growth and traffic numbers are an indication that our clients value the quality of service we provide. While many of the flights we deal with are for pleasure and business, we also handle emergency ambulance flights and it is imperative that we offer a responsive service,” says Heather.

TAG Farnborough ceo Brandon O’Reilly: master plan.

The Multiflight FBO, which caters for all sizes of aircraft, from light aircraft to vip business jets and 757s, features a dedicated taxiway from the apron and two barrel-vaulted hangars covering 6,300 square metres that are able to house four Boeing 737-800 sized aircraft. Established for over eight years, the FBO has been transformed as part of a multi-million pound investment by Multiflight and Leeds Bradford international airport on the airport’s south side. The facilities were refurbished, providing luxury lounge facilities and the Multiflight café bar and the flight training centre were established. “Our third place in the EBAN readers’ survey confirms that Multiflight is now one of the finest facilities of its kind in the country,” says Cawthorne. TAG Farnborough, however, proves that the larger FBO can provide the highest level of service despite the challenge of much bigger volumes of business. It is building further on some of the most spectacular facilities in Europe and working hard to gain permission to almost double the limit on its aircraft movements. Brandon O’Reilly, ceo, says: “The

airport’s master plan issued for public consultation details the upto-date history, current operations and economic forecasts. Essentially we are forecasting increasing demand for TAG Farnborough and will make a planning application to our local council during 2009 for an increase to our current limit of 28,000 movements, which we are virtually at now, to 50,000. The decision on any increase is determined by the local council, so it is difficult to tell when a decision will be made but it will not be until 2010 at the earliest.” O’Reilly explains: “The airport/ FBO is special for many reasons, not just one. It’s the combination of a “no compromises” service ethos and a bespoke business aviation infrastructure that is integrated – terminal, hangars, engineering, FlightSafety International training centre, Aviator Hotel and of course the TAG brand. We recruit, train and manage our employees to these requirements. This is why a relatively large FBO like ours can be as successful as the smaller organisations.” These facilities, and the no compromise service ethos, enabled TAG Farnborough to compete with the “family FBOs” such as Mallorcair which topped the readers’ poll for the fifth year running.

Sunshine idea hatches into high-flying Jersey operation The inspiration for the launch of Jersey-based Aviation Beauport, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, can be traced back to a beach in Sardinia. The company’s two founders – Jerseymen Tom Clarke and Patrick Harrison – had travelled there to take delivery of their newly-acquired twin-engined Piper Aztec D. As they basked in the sunshine, they decided that the aircraft could be usefully and profitably employed as an air taxi. The new company’s early

Prize winning pilot praises Signature and Landmark Pilot Bertrand Busin, who flies for Lyreco, likes Signature in Birmingham and Landmark in Paris and Nice because they make him feel at home and look after his passengers with great attention to detail. Busin, who wins the Jeppesen flight bag in the random draw which EBAN conducts annually among readers who vote in the survey, is chief pilot with global office supplier Lyreco which operates a Citation XLS.

passengers included 3,000 day-old chicks en route from Jersey to St Brieuc in Brittany. “However, a snowstorm forced the aircraft’s return to Jersey with the chicks still on board and, as a result, they were obliged to take up temporary residence in the Aviation Beauport offices,” says md Capt. Greg Graham. “Since then hundreds of thousands of passengers have passed through its doors.” He adds: “The company now operates a long-established air charter business and our corporate management division offers everything from hangarage, flight planning and maintenance to a complete turnkey operation.” Aviation Beauport was acquired in 1984 by the current chairman, businessman Michael Bell. At the same time, he also acquired the air taxi division of Air Atlantique. The two companies were merged under the Aviation Beauport name. The company now owns or manages five aircraft, including a Citation Excel, with a further two jets due in the next 12 months. For more on Aviation Beauport’s service ethic see page 8.

Mallorcair proves again that small is beautiful Small continues to be beautiful for Mallorcair which has now topped the EBAN readers’ FBO Survey for five years in a row. Miguel Mudoy, manager, says: “We are a very small FBO in comparison with TAG Farnborough which has wonderful facilities but a lot of pilots say that they love coming here and are very happy to be in Majorca. Our staff always ask the client if there is anything that can be done to make their stay happy. If they want a particular Spanish wine, we will find it and obtain good discounts for them. We are like a family at Mallorcair and we make our customers feel very much at home. But there are some superb handling agents in Europe and we are so pleased and delighted that we continue to generate such appreciation among our clients.”

Despite the global economic recession Ocean Sky is promising what its chief executive Kurosh Tehranchian (pictured) is calling a year of “aggressive expansion.” The company, which already has FBOs at Manchester and Glasgow Prestwick, is to create a new FBO at Luton which is scheduled to open for business in April. Tehranchian (pictured) says Ocean Sky has taken over an “exceptional site” formerly occupied by Harrods Aviation. “In addition to a large parking area, the FBO will have a luxury lounge for clients provided by a major overhaul of the former Harrods centre.” Ocean Sky, he adds, plans to open a string of new FBOs across Europe during the next 18 months. “We believe the current economic climate is an opportunity as much as it is a challenge. There are great opportunities out there for wellfunded companies like ours to make acquisitions at good prices.” Steve Grimes, former head of Harrods Aviation, will have overall responsibility for all three FBOs. rooms within FBO (dedicated crew lounge with refreshments, TV, internet, work space and reading materials). 10 mins to preferred hotel.

Grimes says: “The Luton FBO will give us crucial access to London through its most important

money will be directed towards upgrading plant and machinery. “Although the current climate is not right for other kinds of private jet investment, if you are in maintenance then supply and demand are relatively constant,” says Tehranchian. He is confident that the worst is over for private aviation, despite a downturn which, he says, has seen charter bookings drop by more than 50 per cent for most companies. “We are luckier than most because we don’t rely on charter, but are diversified into brokerage, maintenance and FBOs.” He also sees improving prospects for the industry as a whole. “As we see it now, sentiment is definitely going in the right direction. The backbone is solid for private aviation. There are even signs of some returning confidence from banks.” Ocean Sky is bringing into service a 12-seat Global Express XRS, which it believes is the only Global Express with a commercial licence available in the UK.
