Gama Aviation leverages global team to win two new aircraft management contracts
Gama Aviation, the global business aviation services company, is pleased to announce it has secured two new aircraft management contracts after the completion of competitive tenders for both.
The first, a three-year contract, will see the company oversee the delivery and subsequent management of a Bombardier Global. The aircraft, once delivered from Bombardier, will fly extensively within the US, Europe and Asia.
Mark Gascoigne, European Managing Director commented: “Our client will use the aircraft intensively for time sensitive missions. On understanding the mission requirements and logistics, we determined how we could reduce single point failures via our global network to minimise schedule risk and downtime during each flight. Our passion to simplify and de-risk an otherwise complex logistical exercise was the primary reason for our selection, something that no-one else, in the view of our client, could achieve.”
The second contract awarded this month, sees the addition of a new type to the fast-growing Asia fleet. The Gulfstream G650ER will join the fleet on delivery, making it the second Gulfstream to join the Asia fleet in the first six months of this year.
Sergio Silva, General Manager commented: “We are extremely pleased to add another tail to the fleet in Asia. We are seeing an increasing trend amongst knowledgeable owners in Asia, towards companies that have the capability to support the full capabilities of their aircraft, whether at its home base or down route in say, Las Vegas. This simplifies the mission for the pilot, the owner representative, the EA and the owner, as they understand they’ll receive end-to-end support from us locally and via our comprehensive global network.”
