first_imgExecuJet Africa, part of the ExecuJet Aviation group is exhibiting at Mining Indaba, February 8-11 in Cape Town, South Africa. ExecuJet is showcasing its full suite of business aviation services, including aircraft management, helicopter and fixed-wing charter.The company is expanding Africa’s managed and charter fleet with the addition of a Cessna Supervan 900, ideal for accessing locations with short, unprepared landing strips, such as mining sites.Gavin Kiggen, Director of Aviation Services, ExecuJet Africa, says: “We are proud to be exhibiting at Mining Indaba for the fifth consecutive year and look forward to discussing how ExecuJet supports the mining interests and opportunities within the region.“Private aviation underpins Africa’s mining sector because aircraft are often the only means by which to reach isolated and remote locations. Our missions range from transporting mining personnel and cargo to oil pipeline inspections and security surveillance support.“In line with the key role aviation plays in the African mining industry, we are excited about adding a Cessna Supervan 900 to our fleet. We anticipate it will be in very high demand, not only for mining operations, but also remote sightseeing and safari expeditions.”ExecuJet Africa provides access to a range of helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. The helicopter fleet includes the Bell 407, Bell 230, Agusta A109, Eurocopter EC130 B3 and B4, and the fixed-wing aircraft fleet includes Pilatus PC-12s, King Air 200/350/1900, Learjet 45s, Jetstream 41s, Bombardier Challenger 300s, Hawker 4000, Cessna Citations and Bombardier Global Express.ExecuJet’s Africa facilities have maintained International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) certification for many years and the company is the first in Africa to achieve International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) accreditation. ExecuJet Africa is also a Wyvern Wingman member and is the only operator to have received the ARGUS Platinum Rating as a charter operator on the African continent.last_img read more
