Fractional ownership and aircraft management company Jetfly, which has a 50-strong Pilatus fleet, now offers its members domestic UK flights on board newly re-registered PC-12NG (G-OJFA) following an announcement of its new partnership with UK PC-12 business aviation operator Ravenair.
According to Jetfly’s Sales Director UK Jonathan Clough, two more Jetfly PC-12s are planned to join Ravenair’s UK Air Operator’s Certificate to realise increased demand for flights from destinations such as Oxford to Cornwall, Fairoaks Airport to Jersey and Goodwood Aerodrome to the Isle of Man.
Liverpool-based Ravenair oversaw the export of a Jetfly Luxembourg-registered aircraft to the UK and the airworthiness, registration and AOC formalities included a 300-hour scheduled maintenance check undertaken at Jetfly’s Part 145 maintenance facility at Bournemouth Airport, overseen by Ravenair’s CAMO.
Wayne Barrett, Ravenair Operations Director, extended his thanks to his Operations teams, trainers and examiners for handling the project, which completed at the end of May.
“This convenient arrangement with Ravenair provides more flexibility for Jetfly members, who can now fly from the UK to the EU, intra UK and intra EU through the Luxembourg-headquartered Jetfly Group,” said Jonathan Clough.
Jetfly says it has four fully trained UK pilots already supporting G-OJFA and is training more in line with G-registry rules as demand escalates.
