AIR ASTANA CELEBRATES 16th YEAR WITH OPENING OF NEW AVIATION TECHNICAL CENTRE IN ASTANA
May 24, 2018 – Largest aircraft repair centre in Central Asia offers services to national and international carriers across the region
Air Astana, the award-winning Kazakh flag carrier, marked its 16th anniversary with the opening of a new Aviation Technical Centre at Astana’s Nursultan Nazarbayev international airport today. The new Aviation Technical Centre enables Air Astana to undertake all aircraft engineering and servicing requirements up to heavy maintenance level. The project was financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development at a cost of US$ 19 million.
The Aviation Technical Centre’s energy efficient, single span hangar offers 5,556 square meters of floor space and can accommodate widebody types like the Boeing 787 or Boeing 767, alongside a single aisle aircraft like the latest Airbus A320neo family simultaneously.
The Canadian designed structure is built to a very high specification and designed to remain fully operational even under the extremely low temperatures experienced in Astana during winter months. In addition to the hangar, the Aviation Technical Centre incorporates a spare parts warehouse and a complete range of workshops for the repair and overhaul of aircraft components. An auxiliary building provides space for the existing Air Astana Engineering and Centre to significantly expand training of engineering and maintenance staff to international standards.
“With Astana, the futuristic capital of Kazakhstan, and Air Astana, the national flag carrier, respectively, celebrating 20th and 16th anniversaries in 2018, the opening of this new Aviation Technical Centre represents a shared cause for celebration,” said Peter Foster, President and CEO of Air Astana. ”For Astana, the added aerospace infrastructure contributes to the city’s standing as the leading air hub in Central Asia, whilst for Air Astana , it represents another significant step in expanding the carrier’s capabilities and boosting its international reputation for excellence.”
Harrods Aviation taps Flight Solutions as technology partner – Automated check in now live at London Luton and Stansted Airport FBOs
May 23, 2018 – Harrods Aviation is exhibiting at EBACE 2018 next week (stand A67) having recently gone ‘live’ with a new automated check in system for its VIP and group charter flights at its London Luton and London Stansted FBOs.
The system, from privately-owned British company, London based Flight Solutions, will help improve efficiency weekly speeding up passenger and ground handling (hitherto a manual process) through the fast capture of passport or other identity documents, automated generation of flight manifest and the issuing of baggage tags for tracking and baggage reconciliation.
The flexible (eDCS) system, designed specifically for FBOs, was installed in late February. Training was carried out in April and ‘it is up and running really well,’ said Harrods Aviation Sales and Marketing Director, Will Holroyd.
‘With this investment, we are well prepared for the stepped up requirements of electronic passenger and crew manifest data for Border Force that are being introduced and for UK Department for Transport (DfT) security compliance to the baggage process.’
This summer both FBOs are seeing bigger groups (music tours, sports charters, including World Cup movements) pass through its FBOs.
‘The eDCS solution is a simple but effective, off the shelf solution which is great for support out on the ramp too, enabling ground handlers to quickly deal with any bag changes required. It is competitively priced, fit for purpose and tried and proven, which is why we chose it,’ added Harrods Aviation Kerry Besgrove, Operations Director.
‘We’re delighted to be expanding our business aviation activity with the prestigious and busy Harrods Aviation’s FBOs at Luton and Stansted,’ said Paul Secker, founder and CEO of Flight Solutions. ‘Our technology will help them to be more efficient and give them time to focus on what they are so skilled at; excellent customer service.’
Flight Solutions’ CEO Paul Secker will be in Geneva for EBACE (28 to 31 May 2018) and is looking forward to meeting with expanding business aviation FBOs in Europe.
Their solutions have been operational at other FBOs including at TAG Farnborough Airport for three years and since 2012 at the Inflite Jet Centre at London Stansted.
Falcon Aviation at Al Bateen Executive Airport, Abu Dhabi, introduced the system in 2016 (when it was white labelled as LocalCheck). It has helped the operator achieve regular on time performance with its 12 daily flights between Al Bateen to Zurku Island transporting 700 passengers a day. The operation, using Bombardier Q400 turboprops, supported 215,000 passengers in 2017.
Cobalt Air In-Flight Entertainment Goes Live – Fleet-wide IFE enhancement aboard expanding Cyprus carrier’s – Airbus A320/A319 fleet
May 23 2018 – Larnaca, Cyprus– Cobalt Air, Cyprus’ expanding airline, has enhanced its onboard experience for all its passengers with the introduction of in-flight entertainment (IFE) across its Airbus A319 and A320 fleet via portable wireless IFE platform, Bluebox Wow. Cabin crew training was completed last week in readiness for the system to go live this week, across Cobalt’s route network.
Bluebox Wow, from Bluebox Aviation Systems Ltd. in Scotland, delivers wireless media content streamed to passengers’ own devices – including phones, laptops, and tablets.
Cobalt passengers can enjoy Movies and TV shows, with music, games and magazines to follow later, all accessed simply through a web browser.
Cobalt Air has specified three Bluebox Wow boxes per aircraft, which are conveniently secured in overhead lockers, ensuring that every passenger can access IFE content throughout their flight.
Bluebox Wow is a discrete, portable, lunchbox-sized unit. Each box’s single, swappable rechargeable battery can deliver up to 15 hours of streamed video content.
“We are very pleased to be offering inflight entertainment on board our flights now, just ahead of the peak summer and family holidays,” said Cobalt Air CEO Andrew Madar. “From the outset we were clear that we didn’t want to have any disruption to our extremely busy fleet that a fitted system would incur. This solution from Bluebox was ideal for us – affordable and excellent quality – just like us. All our cabin crew have to do is turn it on and swap batteries when required. Families always travel with multiple devices so we are making sure that every passenger can access our movies and tv shows.”
“As Cobalt Air is an airline committed to offering its passengers exceptional service – we’re thrilled to be part of this latest enhancement on board,” said Kevin Clark, CEO of Bluebox Aviation Systems. “We’re delighted that Bluebox Wow will be engaging Cobalt passengers throughout the peak holiday season and beyond.”

Euro Jet To Celebrate 10 Years of Growth at EBACE
May 23 2018 – Euro Jet, the leading provider of ground support services throughout Europe and Asia is pleased to celebrate 10 years of continuous growth and development at EBACE this May 29-31, 2018 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Established in 2008, Euro Jet’s goal was to create a network of ground handling support stations throughout Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Ten years later and with over 200 stations manned by a team of aviation professionals, fluent in both their local language and English, the company has supported tens of thousands of flights for customers ranging from executive jet operators to commercial and cargo carriers.
“The overall interest of American, European, and Asian customers in the region of Central and Eastern Europe along with the CIS countries has been tremendous over the past ten years. The growth of tourism, manufacturing, along with other business investments from all over the world has contributed to the extraordinary growth of Euro Jet. We were founded right before the global recession, were able to work through it, and since then have been very successful as the world economy has prospered,” says Gareth Danker, Euro Jet’s Director of Global Sales and Marketing.
Over the past 10 years, the company has strived to improve the airport experience of all crews by continuously opening complimentary crew lounges throughout the Euro Jet network. Currently, new crew lounges and offices are opening in Sofia, Bulgaria; Warsaw, Poland, and Belgrade, Serbia. We also moved to a renovated lounge at the new General Aviation Terminal in Zagreb, Croatia. Euro Jet also has two lounges located in Prague, Czech Republic; Poprad, Slovakia; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic; Constanta, Romania; Tivat, Montenegro; and Bucharest, Romania.
In order to adjust to the significant increase in flights, Euro Jet has over the past year doubled the amount of people working in its Operations Control Center (OCC) located in Prague, Czech Republic.
“Continuously growing the staff allows us to cover the high demand for our services during the busy Summer months as well as one-time events that often double the amount of business coming in. The next big event that our OCC team will take care of along with local staff is the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is hosted by Russia this year in 11 different locations. Euro Jet will be working with its carefully selected partners in each location, along with its own representatives on the ground to provide the most expedited and efficient service during what is expected to be a challenging event,” says Paul Lourenco, Euro Jet’s Director of Operations.
Euro Jet was also one of the first international companies to participate in the NATA Safety 1st training, having certified its ground staff in the program. Furthermore, all country managers and top agents gather multiple times during the year for continuous training. “Maintaining the highest standards is of the utmost importance to the company,” comments Euro Jet’s CEO Charlie Bodnar.
“While the first ten years brought an increase in staff, clients, and continued investment, the question is what will the next ten years bring? My answer to this is that we are planning nonstop business expansion, and for the next 10 years we will work every day to ensure our customers have the best possible experience,” continues Mr. Bodnar.

AfBAA to launch Commercial General Aviation Symposium at EBACE
May 21, 2018 – The African Business Aviation Association (AfBAA) will launch the AfBAA Commercial General Aviation Symposium (CGAS), at EBACE 2018, booth W43. Nairobi, Kenya will be home to the meeting that will take place 21-23 November 2018. This will be the Association’s first meeting focusing on flight operations in the turboprop hub of East Africa, as the spotlight shines on the CGA community.
Rather than a one-day conference, where attendees are seated in a single space, the event will take advantage of tailored, focused sessions and workshops discussing the operational needs of rotary aircraft, remotely piloted aerial systems, and business jets. The variety of missions, and the huge spectrum of aircraft serving the humanitarian, tourism, medevac, agricultural, and industrial sectors in East Africa have defined the parallel-session format. The symposium will aim to build a platform from which smaller suppliers and operators can interact with local, regional, national, intercontinental and international colleagues. Each session will address specific topics, and attendees will be encouraged to debate and discuss relevant issues currently affecting those operating in the sectors.
AfBAA is partnering with Nairobi-based The Aero Club of East Africa, which has been supporting aviation in Kenya since 1927. The members’ club serves those with an interest in aviation, and acts as a base for pilot training, air shows, safety seminars, and navigation education. It will provide the venue for the CGAS pre- and post-event networking activities, as well as hosting the table–top exhibition.
“As far as we know this type of format has not been undertaken previously for an aviation event in Africa, but the Association has a duty to represent the interests of these sectors in addition to business jets. We’re delighted that our first Kenya event will focus on the aviation workhorses of the region,” said Rady Fahmy, CEO of AfBAA. “Unlike West Africa which maximises the capabilities of longer-range jets, East Africa depends on the flexibility, versatility and “off-road” capabilities of the smaller turbo-prop and helicopter machines. We are very excited to set this event in motion.”

Brian Proctor, founder, President and CEO of Mente Group comments, “Colleen’s wealth of experience with talent acquisition and management services will add an extremely important service for our valued clients. As the overall business aviation sector faces a challenging time sourcing business aviation pilots, Colleen’s extensive relationships with flight operations personnel will connect our clients with qualified leadership candidates and help to nurture future talent. In order to have a well functioning flight operation, we know human capital is as important as the physical capital in having a positive ownership experience. For this reason, we are delighted to bring on the best in the business to help recruit the very best talent for our clients. We are excited that Colleen has joined the Mente team to add that critical element to our portfolio of services.”

TBM – Nicolas Chabbert’s viewpoint : Connectivity and longevity
May 17 2018 – Edito Newsletter DAHER TBM
As we approach the mid-way point of 2018, two themes underscore our evolution of the TBM during this year as Daher continues to meet – and exceed – expectations of the owners and operators who fly the very fast turboprop family.
The first theme is “connectivity,” which was underscored by our unveiling of the “Me & My TBM” app at Germany’s AERO Friedrichshafen trade show in April. This new smartphone application represents a true breakthrough for the general aviation sector, as it considerably enhances the TBM’s operating efficiency, optimizes maintenance management, and contributes to pilots flying their aircraft at the highest safety standards.
Initial reactions to “Me & My TBM” were extremely positive from the TBM community – and across the general aviation sector at large – and included feedback that went well beyond the app’s direct advantages. Daher once again was recognized for its continued efforts to remain at the forefront of innovation, as well as its ability to capture the “new and different” while adding capabilities to TBM aircraft and providing benefits to their owners/operators.
Daher once again was recognized for its continued efforts to remain at the forefront of innovation
The app builds on other improvements we’re introducing on a regular basis. As an example, “connectivity” on the latest TBM 910 and TBM 930 versions is further augmented with the implementation of Garmin’s Flight Stream 510 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth linkup to mobile devices that run the Garmin Pilot or Foreflight apps.
This follows other enhancements for Model Year 2018 TBM 910s and TBM 930s announced earlier in 2018, ranging from new heated seats to such improved pilot interface updates as backlighting on the cockpit’s central console.
Our steps in regularly evolving the TBM family bring me to the second theme of 2018: “longevity.” With our philosophy of constant improvement, we’re ensuring the TBM continues at the top of its class for owners/operators, and its value remains strong for the long term – an approach we apply to new aircraft and on earlier production versions with our growing catalogue of retrofit options.
“Longevity” also is an appropriate word that links our loyal customers to the TBM’s country of origin – France. I was pleased by the positive atmosphere during the recent French state visit to the United States, reflecting the historically strong French-American relationship. The pride of our owners/operators in flying their TBM underscores how avant-garde they are in choosing “the French lady” as their preferred aircraft.
Looking to the second half of 2018, “longevity” also will be one of our themes at the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh fly-in during July – where we’ll be exhibiting an aircraft that represents a true milestone in the TBM’s production run, while also celebrating the 30th anniversary of the TBM’s first flight in July 2008.
I wish you blue skies, good tail winds and safe flying.

Avantto and Air BP collaborate in carbon offsetting program for business aviation
São Paulo, May 17, 2018 – Avantto Aircraft Administration, in collaboration with Air BP, announces a pioneering program in Brazil to offset carbon emissions in the business aviation sector. The carbon emissions related to the use of all of the aviation fuel supplied by Air BP to Avantto for the next 12 months will be offset via BP Target Neutral, in line with the companies’ commitment to a lower carbon future.
“Through our partnership with Air BP, we have taken another step in our sustainability journey. Now, in addition to benefits such as safety, availability and convenience, our clients will also have the carbon emissions from the aviation fuel used in their flights offset, thereby responding in a practical way to the climate challenges,” says Rogério Andrade, Avantto’s CEO.
Avantto performs more than 750 take-offs per month, accumulating more than 4,500 flight hours per year, for about 400 users. Concerns about sustainability are at the heart of Avantto’s business model. Through shared flights between clients, it is possible to optimize aircraft occupancy by reducing fuel consumption and the number of "empty legs". Also, Avantto operates in one of the world’s most modern heliports – HBR Aviation, whose construction respected and prioritized a minimum environmental impact.
The program will be launched on June 1, 2018, and initially run for one year, with the possibility of being extended into the future. This is Air BP’s first carbon offsetting offer for business aviation customers in Brazil and complements its carbon neutral into-plane fueling operations at 250 directly operated locations around the world, including a number of locations in Brazil such as Sao Paulo Guarulhos and Rio de Janeiro Galeao international airports.
“In addition to finding ways to reduce our own carbon emissions, we work closely with our customers to develop innovative offers that support them in the transition to a lower carbon future. We are proud to launch this initiative in Brazil in collaboration with Avantto, which gives business aviation customers the opportunity to reduce the carbon impact of flying " says Ricardo Paganini, General Manager, Air BP South America.
All the carbon emissions related to use of the aviation fuel supplied by Air BP to Avantto will be offset through BP Target Neutral. The carbon emission reductions from its global portfolio of projects are independently verified and monitored in line with the ICROA (International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance) Code of Best Practice. Projects within the BP Target Neutral portfolio have been assessed n the basis of their contribution to reducing carbon emissions and their potential to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, for example, through their potential to help improve livelihoods for the communities they are based in through various educative, economic and social benefits.
Air BP to offset carbon emissions of fuel supplied to Teruel Airport in May
Madrid, May 17, 2018. To mark the fifth anniversary of Teruel Airport, Air BP and PLATA (Plataforma Aeroportuaria de Teruel) have launched an initiative where carbon emissions related to the aviation fuel supplied at the airport will be offset through carbon reduction projects around the world.
Carbon emissions from the JET-A1 and AVGAS 100LL supplied at the airport by Air BP during May 2018 will be offset through BP Target Neutral, a programme designed to help customers reduce, replace and neutralize carbon emissions. BP Target Neutral will balance the emissions from aviation fuel at Teruel by purchasing carbon credits from projects around the world that have reduced emissions. This process nets the emissions from aviation fuel at Teruel to zero for the month of May.
Valerio Ferro, General Manager Air BP West Med, said: “This initiative demonstrates Air BP’s continued commitment to Teruel Airport, providing it with leading-edge, innovative aviation fuel solutions and helping with the transition towards a lower carbon future.”
The aim of Plataforma Aeroportuaria de Teruel has always been to provide aviation services while respecting the environment it is operating in. It has achieved this through closely monitoring what best practice is in this area and then implementing it. “Minimizing our environmental impact has always been a priority and guided us in the development of multiple initiatives,” says Alejandro Ibrahim, General Manager of Teruel Airport. “Because of that, we are leading the Spanish airport
industry where carbon offsetting programmes are concerned.”
To balance emissions from Teruel BP Target Neutral’s global portfolio includes a variety of offset projects ranging from the installation of hydropower plants in rural China to biogas initiatives in Karnataka, India. All the projects are selected by an independent forum, independently verified and monitored in line with the ICROA (International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance) Code of Best Practice. The projects are chosen based on their contribution to UN Sustainable Development
Goals, which includes their contribution to reducing carbon emissions and improving livelihoods for the communities they are based in through various educative, economic and social benefits.
AVIAÂ appoints Clive Prentice as Consultant – MRO leadership specialist will identify partners, provide mentorship
May 16, 2018AVIAÂ , the expanding global group purchasing organisation for business aircraft owners and operators, has added to its team of experts with the appointment of UK-based Clive Prentice as Consultant, specialising in MRO and technical services. In his new role, he will advise on suitable independent maintenance partners and mentor the global maintenance team as the business evolves.
Clive brings two decades’ experience running large maintenance organizations for business jet companies to AVIAÂ – originally supporting OEMs and then moving to third party independent MROs working in a consultancy role, – from Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group, JETS (Bourmemouth) through to Gama Aviation PLC. Previously, Clive served as Finance Director, BAE Corporate Jets; MD of Raytheon Aviation Services and VP and General Manager for Hawker Beechcraft, responsible for Customer Support in the EMEA region.
Typically a smaller business aircraft operator will invest nearly US$200,000 per year on MRO per aircraft. Working with established and leading independent maintenance suppliers in Europe and the US, AVIAÂ aims to help save its members 15% upwards on MRO costs, contributing to an overall US$100,000 saving per jet, per year, based on 520 flying hours.
The fiercely competitive MRO business has consolidated, and the independents face very slim margins. The original manufacturers are more involved in supporting their jets now, duly creating MRO slots at leading independents who hold existing or expired authorised service centre status. “This is the area we are looking at, working with reputable, established players. AVIAÂ’s offer is very attractive for both operator and owner and supplier,” noted Clive.
“I bring a good understanding of the traditional methodology that can be utilized to benchmark the services provided and ensure the regulatory framework is understood,” he added
