ProAir Aviation, the AOC operation of Stuttgart, Germany-headquartered ProAir Group and sister company of charter brokerage ProAir-Charter-Transport, has made additions to its fleet, changes to its management team and relocated to Wildau, near Berlin Brandenburg International airport. The ProAir Aviation fleet currently comprises 27 aircraft with more additions in the pipeline.
“The demand for business jet flights and private jets has grown very strongly in recent months, both chartering of private jets for individual flights and demand in terms of aircraft purchase and management,” says founder Elmar Monreal.
Managing director Stefan Wuske adds: “In addition to the first single engine PC-12 registered commercially in Germany and long haul jets such as a Global 5000, we operate the largest CitationJet fleet in Europe. Supplemented by two brand new Phenom 300Es, we have a fleet that is in very high demand and attractive to our customers.”
In recent years, the requirements of aviation authorities and the complexity in terms of technology, crews and qualification of ground staff have constantly increased. The ProAir Group is responding to these changes through the continuous training of its personnel base, strategic cooperation with experts and specialist companies, as well as changes to its management team. Stefan Wuske and Michael Reisenleutner now lead its further expansion within the ProAir Group as managing director and accountable manager. This, and other personnel recruitment, has necessitated a relocation of the business premises from Leipzig to Wildau, near Berlin Brandenburg International airport.
“With our own CAMO (Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation) and over 25 years of experience as an aviation company, we can offer aircraft owners and those who want to become one an attractive total package of flight operations, engineering and charter sales,” says accountable manager Michael Reisenleutner.
Against the background of economic challenges coming from rising costs in areas including fuel, handling, proceedings, maintenance and financing, the ProAir Group offers attractive cost models for aircraft owners due to its broad positioning.
“The owner company of Northwings, currently with two brand new Phenom 300E as well as further aircraft in the pipeline, will transfer the overall responsibility of flight operations to the ProAir Group and will pursue further development together with ProAir,” says Northwings owner René Strothmann.
“We thank René for his trust in our many years of flying experience and look forward to the further expansion of the joint fleet,” adds Monreal.
