Dubai-based Empire Aviation Group is launching aircraft management services in Egypt and CAMO-only management contracts for third party operators. Empire continues to grow its managed fleet and global reach, with operations in the Middle East, US, San Marino, India and Africa.
The company recently launched aircraft management services in Egypt and inducted the first aircraft, a Global 6000 business jet, into its managed fleet of over 20 business jets. In addition to managing and operating the new aircraft for the owner's private use, Empire will offer it to the global charter market.
The Global 6000 has a range of 6,000 nm and accommodates up to 13 passengers. It has a well-equipped galley as well as a private stateroom, and is fitted with Ka-band wi-fi connectivity.
MD Paras Dhamecha says: “We are delighted to announce the introduction of our full service aircraft management in Egypt, which is a market with tremendous potential. The 6000 is an excellent aircraft and a great addition to our regional managed fleet and aircraft available for charter. We already have other candidate aircraft in the pipeline for Egypt and benefit from the support of our associate partner, Z-Aviation Services in Cairo. It's our ability to integrate seamlessly all these strands of private aviation, sales, management, operations, CAMO and charter, that means Empire Aviation can support owners and operators so effectively and make ownership a positive and rewarding experience.”
The company has also now launched CAMO services as a stand-alone offer for third party aircraft owners and operators. Two business jets are already on CAMO-only contracts, under which Empire takes responsibility for the quality management, auditing and records of each contracted aircraft. CAMO certification is a commitment to ensuring the airworthiness of an aircraft, culminating in a Certificate of Release to Service, without which an aircraft will not be able to fly.
