Static aircraft cohort at ACE'23 is growing fast
Air Charter Expo is a unique exhibition giving operators the opportunity to come and present their services to their most important customers. A few aircraft placements remain, booking is essential.
Read this story in our June 2023 printed issue.

This year the static display at the upcoming ACE'23 show promises to be bigger and more diverse than ever. To date there are spaces reserved for a Dassault Falcon 8X, a Citation M2 Gen2, a Leonardo AW109SP GrandNew, an Embraer Praetor 600 and many more from major OEMs.

King Air operator Isle-Fly is the European launch customer for the Beechcraft King Air 260 that it is bringing to the show. Its aircraft are owned in-house and are all fully available for charter, with no owner's release. The twin turboprops can operate into both large and smaller airports while producing fewer emissions than others in their class. Isle-Fly has bases on Jersey and at East Midlands, providing excellent charter coverage of the UK and Europe and, with access to over 3,400 aircraft worldwide, the team can meet the most challenging travel requirements.

Haute Aviation is a Swiss 'family boutique' charter company, where confidentiality and the highest personal standards are the main focus and passion of CEO and lead captain Alexander Tamagni, his wife Catherine Tamagni and the team. It offers charter, brokerage and aircraft management and will be showcasing its Phenom 300 at the show.

London Luton airport-based boutique operator Pen-Avia is bringing its Gulfstream G600 to the static. The company will also be talking about its factory-fresh Gulfstream G450, recently introduced into operation and with the range and capability to operate directly from Europe to the US and Middle East.

There is still time to join them, and others, at London Biggin Hill airport on Tuesday, 12 September. The extensive aircraft display is laid out both inside the hanger, among the charter operator booths, and outside on the apron. The benefits of registering to position an aircraft at the airport are no landing fees, no parking fees and only one day’s commitment.

Previously operators have acknowledged that as charter is at the heart of their business, the opportunity to meet other operators and clients in one place, over the course of just one day, is invaluable. They rely on brokers to bring them business, so its good to meet up face to face and see the aircraft. ACE, they say, is slightly smaller than other shows but everyone tends to enjoy it more. And as the show is boutique, so it tends to have the important aircraft and helicopters on show.

The ACE'23 dedicated conference and exhibition is a must-attend for all in the air charter industry. There remain a limited number of aircraft positions available in prime positions alongside the ACE’23 booth area. Prices are available on request, but generally the cost is £2,250 for The ACA members, and £2,750 for others.

All bookings include landing and fees at London Biggin Hill airport, but do not include ground power (typically between £500 and £1,000).
