MOST mines sites are in remote areas and harsh environments, posing safety risks on multiple levels. It is therefore important to reduce travel risk as much as possible by using a reputable, safety conscious aviation company with intimate knowledge of the region.
With a growth in the mining sector, there is a growing need for aviation services, including executive transportation, shift rotation, aero-medical and spare parts delivery. It is important to select an aviation
operator which aspires to the same stringent safety policies as most mine sites.
ExecuJet Aviation Group undergoes regular internal and independent aviation safety audits and rates among the best in the industry. The independent safety audit organisations that have rated ExecuJet include: BARS, Wyvern, Hart Aviation and ISBAO.
ExecuJet has a long history of servicing Africa and Australasia’s mining sectors, which has involved flying senior management andexecutives from resource companies on an ad-hoc basis, via a range of aircraft
from turboprops to business jets – all managed under the most stringent safety standards.
As the leading global business aviation organisation, ExecuJet offers a diverse range of services including sales and acquisitions, management, charter, maintenance, completions consulting and fixed base operations. ExecuJet’s Australasian arm delivers tailored private and corporate aviation solutions including aircraft management and charter, fixed base operations, SimplyFly, and aircraft completions consulting, spare parts and brokerage.
With many Australian mining companies holding assets in Africa, it is worth noting that ExecuJet South Africa became the first ARGUS Platinum rated operator on the continent. ARGUS Platinum is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARGUS International, which is the leading audit organisation for aircraft operators around the world. The platinum rating is ARGUS’ highest level of quality ratings, awarded to charter operators that have demonstrated successful implementation of industry best safety practices relative to their operations and maintenance.
ExecuJet has recently added the Challenger 604 to its Australasian fleet, which is based in Perth. The Challenger has a reputation for being a workhorse that is able to handle long and short-range missions.
Furthermore, the Australasian arm is expected to gain four new Learjet 45s. The new jets will be available for charter and aero-medical flying after they have been refurbished and maintenance upgrades have been completed.
ExecuJet is headquartered in Switzerland, manages more than 150 aircraft and operates in six regions: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. The ExecuJet Australasian arm
has aircraft based in Perth, Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore and Wellington, New Zealand.
