Belgium's FlyingGroup plans to expand its fleet to at least 33 aircraft and develop its business in France with Million Air. FlyingGroup is acquiring two CJ3s, five Mustangs, an XLS+, and, under management, a Falcon 2000EX, three Falcon 7Xs and a Citation Sovereign. The current fleet is a mix of Cessnas, Falcons and Challengers.

"At the end of 2007 FlyingGroup will operate 20 business jets and has placed orders for 13 more aircraft for the next few years," says marketing and PR director Ben Paindavin. "We employ 150 people, 60 of them pilots and we have a fleet of 14 owned and managed business jets, five of which joined the fleet last year."

He adds: "We believe that our new aircraft will enable us to provide the right blend of range, comfort and price for our clients for the foreseeable future."

FlyingGroup's activities include aircraft management, shared ownership, aviation consultancy, maintenance and ground handling at its Paris FBO. It has also developed its own Flying Card formula.

Most of the aircraft are based at its Antwerp, Belgium, headquarters but FlyingGroup has other bases in Cannes, Paris and Rotterdam.
