ProCharter has completed a test flight for one of its customers to a remote site airfield to prove the capability of the infrastructure on the ground and identify the most suitable aircraft to meet the requirement.

Faced with many challenges during the flight planning and operation, the ProCharter team worked tirelessly to prove and overcome all the obstacles and complete the flight.

Speaking from the ProCharter Dubai Office, Steve Day, Managing Director said; “ This was a great team effort involving our staff in Kuwait, Dubai, USA and UK, and is further evidence of our capability to operate to remote areas. This was the first flight of its kind to this airfield, and we are pleased our efforts were rewarded with the extremely smooth operation. Our customer is also really pleased, which is extremely important. We have developed significant experience in remote site operations, and this flight is another example of what we have achieved.”

Instrumental in the planning and successful operation was Anthony ‘Taff’ Wood, Operations Manager for ProCharter in Kuwait.  Taff remarked,

A multiagency airlift to a hostile environment is coordinated and planned over a period of months. The Operations team all played their part team in this mission which involved interface between two International Airports and an austere location with an extremely limited capability in aviation terms. Patience and Tenacity allowed the team to overcome all obstacles and receive great customer feedback.

All In a day’s work for ProCharter

AN-12 Photo: ProCharter © 2015

ProCharter was approached by a key client and leading multinational plc to move time critical supplies to a remote site location. Due to the nature of the consignment of life critical supplies it had top priority and needed an urgent airlift solution. The delivery location being both hostile and remote would only be available for a short ‘daylight’ time frame which would make normal airlift and ground turn-around times impossible to meet.

Procharter, rising to the very difficult task in hand and utilizing our highly experienced ‘ex-military’ team established that we could only operate to such tight schedules by employing a tried and tested military method of an ERO (engine running offload). To make this solution viable and to ensure operational integrity Procharter sourced specialized loading equipment and worked tirelessly over a 10 day period to get the correct clearances and ‘buy in’ from the key stake holders to put the plan into operation.

Utilizing the correct aircraft, configured internally to allow the rapid extraction of 15tonnes of cargo was key and working with one of our main suppliers and employing our ‘in-house’ specialist knowledge to the task allowed 10minute ‘turn arounds’ to become operationally attainable. During the entire process the commercial requirements ran side by side with the tough operational detail and despite such strict ‘mission critical’ obligations, Procharter were able to ensure the solution met both our client’s operational requirements and commercial budget.  The proving flights launched and operated to the planned tight schedule, the proof of concept has now been accepted and we continue to operate weekly flights.

Commenting on this, Robbie Collins, Procharter Operations Manager

The Operations team worked extremely hard on the planning and preparation for this project. From our extensive military experience operating in hostile and austere locations, we know how important it is to be able to be resupplied by air, and these missions provide much needed life support as well as a morale boost.

Adding to this, Steve Day, Procharter Regional Director

Being able to plan and execute such highly complex and challenging missions, and receive laudatory praise from our client and end user, is testamount to the calibre of staff we have on board, striving to achieve operational excellence in extremely challenging circumstances and environments.

Our ethos of ‘customer first excellence always’ is clear to see so if you have a specialist airlift requirement, passenger or cargo, please get in-touch today.

Nepal aid logistics challenges continue

Mike King reporting from Kathmandu | Published Thursday, 07 May 2015 by Lloyds Loading List

… Dean Dawson, Aviation Manager for Pro Charter, said obtaining a permit had become harder in recent days. “The agency that’s receiving the cargo now has to be provided with a huge amount of detail about the cargo and the aircraft,” he said. “It’s a far lengthier process to get approval.”

“We’re bringing cargo in for the International Red Cross and World Food Programme. So this is delaying the arrival of their relief supplies.”

“Getting cargo trucked here is very difficult, but once the monsoon season starts it will get even worse. So it’s absolutely vital to get supplies in as soon as possible.”

ProCharter Asia wins exclusive mandate

ProCharter Asia have been awarded an exclusive mandate to sell two Boeing 747-200F with a stock of 7 spare engines by the owners of the aircraft.

Regional Director Asia, Derek Meikle, said “while we are aware that the market is awash with -200 F aircraft this represents a fantastic opportunity for anyone operating this aircraft type.” The aircraft are both converted combi’s meaning that they have the -400 BCF configuration offering 30 pallet spaces rather than the usual 29 for the type. Furthermore they are powered by RR, RB211-524D4 engines which represents approximately 6% greater fuel efficiency than the GE or P&W equivalent. We have a stock of 7 spare engines in addition to those on the aircraft with between 826 and 2826 cycles.

The aircraft are stored in the US and offered for sale on an as is, where is basis. We can also offer the airframes and engines separately for sale. At the price the owners want to achieve for the package this is an ideal opportunity for any buyer to take the aircraft and operate them through to the end of their commercial lives.
