Marshall Executive Aviation, part of the Marshall Group, is advancing work to obtain a Canadian Foreign Air Operator’s Certificate (FAOC) to enable the company to operate flights in Canada with its Challenger 300. The move follows hard on the heels of the operator being granted an AOC extension this summer enabling its Challenger (G-KALS) to operate to North and South America, Africa, the Middle East and Russia as well as the popular European destinations.
“Our goal is to widen our AOC internationally as our business expands and also add to the managed aircraft fleet,” said Marshall Executive Aviation’s Managing Director Steve Jones. G-KALS joined the Marshall Executive Aviation fleet in June 2010 and is based at Stansted Airport.
Marshall is also expanding its footprint into London Luton Airport, where sister company Marshall Business Aviation (MBA) recently opened a base, providing technical support (including AOG and casualty support) for an expanding range of Cessna aircraft based there. MBA’s office is within the Harrods Aviation facilities.
G-KALS is one of three executive aircraft Marshall Executive Aviation operates, the others being a Cessna Citation C560 XLS and a Cessna Citation C550 Bravo; ideal for charters in Europe, North Africa and Western Russia.
Steve Jones added: “The extension of G-KAL’s AOC will enable us to operate over a much larger area and offer Marshall Executive Aviation’s clients our excellent service virtually worldwide.”
Marshall Executive Aviation will mark its 10th birthday next spring.
