Industry-first AOCs

Our Air Operators’ Certificates (AOCs) are tailor-made to optimise commercial aircraft leasing by allowing lessors to consider more lease destinations than previously possible. Through the AOCs, lessors can benefit from increased asset use, additional revenue and a reduction in preservation costs.

Lease transitions

We’re experienced at managing lease transitions from beginning to end and are trusted to do so by some of the leading players in today’s leasing industry. During lease transitions we oversee the process of removing the aircraft from the lessee at the end of a lease agreement and returning it to the lessor.

3

New delivery

When lessors make a new aircraft purchase, they depend on us to deliver their asset. Apart from the necessary paperwork and fuelling, we operate every aspect of the operation to deliver the plane to its new owner.

4

End of service flights

Once an aircraft has reached the end of its valuable leasing life, we can assist in its transition to a buyer or other destination.  We can also finalise any paperwork associated with this process.
5

Distressed recovery

Our experience in delivering leased aircraft to new destinations helps aircraft lessors to recuperate their assets if needed.  Operating with the utmost discretion and keeping to tight deadlines, we have the skills and network needed for conducting a full recovery process.

6

Demonstration and functional check flights

During a lease transition, there may be a need to carry out a demonstration or functional check flight. Our pilots, who are experienced in carrying out check flights, operate to an approved demonstration flight profile and are available to assist and advise on the design of the flight.

7

Observation flights

We provide qualified and experienced pilots to observe and independently evaluate the performance and operation of an aircraft at the end of or during a lease transition. We regularly assist lessors and airlines with this requirement on a global basis.

We can coordinate a variety of ground handling services from tried and tested providers, for your aircraft and /or passengers at any location. Whether you require first-class catering, aircraft cleaning or VIP transport, we can organise exactly what you need.

Robust liability insurance

We understand that the investment made in purchasing aircraft is enormous. That’s why all our flight operations are covered by a robust, industry-approved Aviation Liability Insurance.

RVSM LOA

RVSM (Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum) decreases the standard vertical separation of aircraft flying between FL 290 (29,000 ft) and FL 410 (41,000 ft) from 2,000 ft to a minimum of 1,000 ft. This allows more aircraft to fly safely in a particular airspace. An RVSM LOA (Letter of Authorisation) grants aircraft operators the FAA’s authorisation to practise RVSM.

There are some ambiguities surrounding RVSM and our knowledgeable team can clarify the correct way forward in this area.

14

TSA Waiver

The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issues waivers for various aircraft to fly within U.S. airspace, which includes the airspace above the United States and its territories. Whether your aircraft requires a waiver depends mostly on how large it is, country of registration, and whether you’re flying to/from, within, or over U.S. airspace.

We have a clear understanding of the scenarios where a TSA Waiver is required and we’re able to assist operators to obtain this document.
