Dragonfly acquires AOC
DragonFly, the Cardiff-based charter company that in 2014 celebrated its 10th anniversary, has been granted its own AOC.
Chief Executive, Howard Palser said that he was most grateful to Peter Turner and his team at Executive Aviation Services Limited, who have hitherto provided AOC support, but the time was ripe for DragonFly to become autonomous, as the company entered its second decade of charter operations and continued to grow.
DragonFly also announced the acquisition of another King Air B200 that will come on line this week and is to be operated from Blackbushe Airport in Hampshire. This aircraft (G-OLIV) is a well-equipped 2003 aircraft that was previously operated by the RAF and has been converted to a VIP configuration, fully refurbished, and repainted in DragonFly’s livery.
With much of its charter work emanating in the Home Counties this expansion will enable DragonFly to eliminate or reduce positioning legs and provide even more competitively priced charters from the London area for its direct and broker clients.
