Stuttgart's ProAir has added a Falcon 7X to its managed fleet. Elmar Monreal, md, says the aircraft was ordered for a client whose Falcon 900B has been managed by ProAir for more than four years.
He adds: "The owner of one of the first Falcon 7X jets to be produced had already been in negotiations with several European companies with regard to aircraft management. But, after an evaluation of all references and relevant experience, ProAir won the full contract for flight operation, maintenance and crews." ProAir, says, Monreal will handle the flight and crew planning, operations, catering, and the obtaining of overflight and landing rights. Monreal says one of the Falcon 7X's big attractions is fly-by- wire technology.
ProAir says the clients uses the aircraft for business schedules and meetings but also for family holidays. "The choice of aircraft depends on the itinerary," it adds. ProAir, which charters a Learjet 31 and a Learjet 45, has been looking at expanding its fleet.
