Gama Aviation has secured two new aircraft management contracts after winning competitive tenders. The first is a three-year deal to oversee the delivery and management of a Bombardier Global that is expected to frequent the US, Europe and Asia.
MD for Europe Mark Gascoigne comments: "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 reduce risk for a complex logistical exercise was the primary reason for our selection and was something that no-one else, in the view of our client, could achieve."
The second contract is for a G650ER, which will grow Gama's Asia fleet. It will be the second Gulfstream aircraft to join the roster in Asia this year. "We are extremely pleased to add another tail to the fleet in Asia," states general manager Sergio Silva. "We are seeing an increasing trend among owners in Asia towards companies that can support the full capabilities of their aircraft, whether at its home base or down route. This simplifies the mission for the pilot, the executive assistant and the owner, as they understand they'll receive end-to-end support from us."
