An Embraer Legacy that arrived in the middle of March under the ownership and operation of Skyline and Kocoglu has already undertaken many domestic flights in Turkey and international flights to Kosovo, Moscow, Greece and Iraq.

"Thanks to our experienced pilots and organised system, we are able to perform flights all over the world." says Efvani Aybike Koc.

"Skyline is proud of being the owner and operator of the first Legacy 600 in the world which is designed and used for emergency medical services."

Based in Ankara, the aircraft has space for four intensive care patients with its professional medical stretcher systems and medical equipments approved by international aviation authorities. It will also serve as vip air taxi, as Skyline says it is the only jet in its category that creates a comfortable environment for 14 passengers with three separate cabin zones.

Skyline Transportation Trade Inc has been a subsidiary of Kocoglu Group, which is involved in various sectors including construction, tourism, energy, healthcare and aviation, since 2008. Its fleet includes an EC130, an EC145, ten EC135s, nine AW109s, a Bell 407, a Bell 230, two Bell 407, two Bell 206s and two Hawker 400XPs.

As such, Skyline is the owner and operator of the largest civilian helicopter fleet in Turkey, and serves the Ministry of Health for EMS operations across Turkey with 19 helicopters in 15 cities.
