Posted 13 September 2016 · Add Comment

ExecuJet Africa is celebrating its 20th year at the Africa Aerospace & Defence (AAD) show, taking place on 14-18 September 2016 at the Waterkloof Air Force Base in Pretoria, by presenting its full range of aviation services and highlighting the core focus areas of the team for the next year.

ExecuJet Africa will be operating out of chalet no.11, and will be showcasing its expertise in aircraft management, maintenance, charter, FBOs and support operations. ExecuJet currently has 32 aircraft in its African fleet, of which 27 are available for charter.

Ettore Poggi, vice president, ExecuJet Africa, says “It is 20 years since ExecuJet’s first appearance at AAD and we are proud to continue our relationship with this outstanding event. AAD represents a great opportunity for us to profile our full suite of aviation services and to promote our world-class standards in safety and aircraft operations.

“AAD also provides us with the opportunity to present the initiatives we are involved in for the wider industry. Our team played a key part in introducing private aviation to the South-Atlantic island of St Helena. ExecuJet staff flew from Johannesburg to St Helena as part of the airport’s certification process and Lanseria Airport will continue its partnership with St Helena Airport over the coming years, managing its airport operations and air space, and providing reliable air services to the island.”

During the last 12 months, the ExecuJet Africa team has worked on a series of successful maintenance ventures. In March 2016, ExecuJet, in partnership with Maintenance Centre Malta (MCM), announced an extended Line Maintenance capability for EASA registered aircraft at its base in Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, Nigeria, to provide support to a larger fleet of different aircraft types.

In June, ExecuJet Maintenance concluded another successful Blackhawk installation on a King Air 200 aircraft. This installation, combined with a Garmin 1000, is a perfect mid-life upgrade to the King Air 200 series aircraft and provides the crew with exceptional situational awareness and improved safety combined with improved climb performance, and improved cruise performance at altitude to allow cruise in the RVSM range and therefore resulting in an improved operational range.

A further two King Air 200 craft have undergone major interior refurbishments and been installed with Garmin 1000 technology, while C-Checks on two Falcon 900Bs, incorporating major structural repairs, have been completed and delivered since January 2016.
