GFS plans second Learjet for Biggin Hill fleet
Following management changes last year, Biggin Hill-based Global Flight Solutions received its new AOC during January.

Following management changes last year, Biggin Hill-based Global Flight Solutions received its new AOC during January. Owner and director Milan Radman is now accountable manager, while Lee McConnell continues as chief pilot.

The company, which reports a busy start to the year, is in expansive mood and actively looking for more aircraft management opportunities. It believes its Learjet 45, which has been on the fleet since the company's inception in 2009, remains the newest Learjet in the UK, and has plans to be operating a second in the near future.

"It has been to many places, but the furthest is Beirut and the closest is Jersey," says office manager Lauren Coetzee. "We have settled in very well at Biggin Hill (which became home base for GFS in 2010). Our customers can fly in via helicopter from London, and can walk straight onto the aircraft. Our facilities are at a very high standard of luxury and our vip room is perfect for those who want to relax a while before boarding the Learjet."
