Centreline Air Charter (CAC) has added a Dassault Falcon 2000LXS to its fleet and has also gained an EASA-approved worldwide Aircraft Operating Certificate (AOC), which enables CAC to operate long-haul services to a wide range of destinations.
CAC, part of the full service business aviation company Bristol Flying Centre Group (BFC), is currently one of Europe’s leading operators of the CJ525 aircraft and the addition of the Falcon 2000LXS increases its managed, charter fleet to seven. The Falcon will be based in Guernsey.
Phil Brockwell, director of BFC, commented “We have stated very clearly in recent months that we are targeting the management contracts of larger, longer range aircraft and gaining the management of the Falcon 2000XLS, and an expansion of our AOC to include worldwide operations, is a huge step into this market.
“We hope to announce soon that we have added more aircraft of a similar range to our fleet and look forward to offering our customers an even wider choice of destinations as well as an enhanced capability to our aircraft management services.
“The versatility of the Falcon 2000LXS allows us to operate into a vast range of airfields not available to similar aircraft and in turn enables CAC to demonstrate its flexibility as an Aircraft Management organization.”
CAC secured the management of a new CJ525 earlier this year, has another which will be added to the fleet by the end of 2015 and has the commitment for the management of an additional large aircraft in early 2016.
