ProCharter Supports UK MoD in Oman

ProCharter supports UK MoD in Oman

‘ProCharter was delighted to support the Joint Helicopter Command with a multimodal logistics service in the Middle East for Operation Pinion Oman 21′. Our ability to provide rapid support and dynamic on the ground solutions was a key factor in our success. We look forward to supporting JHC and UK MoD in the future.’

– Steve Day, Managing Director

ProCharter was approached at short notice by UK MoD to arrange the supply, delivery and management of a wide range of support vehicles and equipment for Exercise Pinion Oman 21; Joint Helicopter Command’s (JHC) desert environmental training exercise. Having a geographical footprint in the region with our head office in Dubai, we were immediately able to divert resources and engage with suppliers in the region to source and deliver the required resources for the exercise in a timely fashion.

ProCharter’s Head Ground Operations Support Manager was immediately made available for deployment. All administration and central operations support functions were provided by ProCharter’s operations staff, from the geographically well-placed Dubai office. ProCharter’s operations staff and contractors are ex UK RAF Movements Controllers, with a wealth of global experience, covering aviation and multi-modal logistics, including ISO container loading and supervision, aircraft pallet building, cargo preparation, load planning and operational co-ordination, as well as being qualified and experienced in IATA Dangerous Goods (DG) and IMDG.

Our team was initially responsible for the provisioning and management of all vehicles and equipment per SOR requirements. However, our combined experience, military backgrounds and capabilities enabled us to offer additional valuable advice and support, through many discussions and observations both on the ground in Oman and in email correspondence and conference calls with JHC staff. This helped to improve operational and commercial efficiency of the exercise.

During the deployment, our team experienced temperature fluctuations between 27°C and 42°C and a cyclone that caused them to take shelter. Despite the challenges during the course of the operation, we effectively utilized (3) Antonov AN-124, five (5) wide-body freighters, twenty-one (21) flatbed and curtain siders, four (4) cranes, and delivered, sixty-five (65) vehicles, along with an array of supplies and equipment.

This was a thoroughly rewarding project. Our team enjoyed interacting with and supporting the UK military during Exercise Pinion Oman 21. We are looking forward to our continuing association with the UK MoD and, building upon this experience going forward as the UK Military develops its training program in the region. We consider and indeed realize that, with the world’s leading military nations, 3PL companies such as ProCharter need to offer a first class product that complements the deployed capabilities of the military and adds value within tight commercial constraints & budgets.

ProCharter, through its experience, network of local suppliers, geographical footprint and its cooperative approach, provided a ‘one-stop shop’ solution for the exercise. Our forward-leaning and logistically aware personnel and suppliers were ideally placed to fill any void or oversights that the exercise encountered.

About Joint Helicopter Command (JHC)

Joint Helicopter Command (JHC) is a tri-service organization uniting battlefield military helicopters of the British Armed Forces for command and coordination purposes.

The Joint Helicopter Command (JHC) was formed in 1999 to bring together under one command the Battlefield Helicopters and Air Assault Force Elements of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force (RAF).

The JHC operates 239 Forward Fleet aircraft including the Sea King and Lynx helicopters of the Royal Navy’s Commando Helicopter Force, the Chinook, Puma and Merlin helicopters of the RAF and the Apache, Lynx, Gazelle and Bell 212 helicopters and the Islander fixed wing aircraft of the Army Air Corps (AAC).

The JHC is unique within the Defence Organization, by remaining agile, interoperable, sustainable, resilient and affordable it will continue to be a vital element of the UK’s war-fighting capability. Combining all 3 services has shown that joinery works, the JHC formula preserves single-service ethos and pride, whilst capitalizing on the strengths of each service.

The JHC has cultivated a challenging and inquisitive culture, which embraces self-development and thrives on strong and intelligent leadership.

 

ProCharter’s Continuing Orphanage Support

ProCharter’s Continuing Orphanage Support

‘We rise by lifting others. Here at ProCharter we express that belief by trying to make a difference in the lives of everyone we touch.’

– Andy Fleming, CEO

The challenges of the pandemic have weighted heavily on the school as it struggled with lengthy lockdowns. Despite these restrictions and inevitable setbacks caused by school closures, The Abode Project orphanage charity in Uganda has not lost its can-do spirit to provide vulnerable children with long-term access to a quality education. After a prolonged absence, the children have finally returned to school and resumed their regular routines, as best they can has the virus continues to challenge us all. As a part of ProCharter’s continuing support and commitment, we have provided a new set of school uniforms for each and every child, in addition to the sport’s kits we provided in 2019.

The Abode charity was founded in 2017 and its main aim is to help some of the poorest kids in Uganda gain a decent education. The charity has already funded a new school and is doing some fantastic work. ProCharter’s CEO Andy Fleming commented ‘we are very happy to do our little bit to help these kids, Africa is a market we work in and have experienced first hand the hardships they endure on a daily basis, remarkably, often with a smile on their faces’

The Abode Project

‘When worlds collide at the most basic, instinctive and primal point of contact; amazing things happen, and the opportunity for exponential development ignites like an untameable wildfire.’

The Abode Project is a non-profit organisation born from the essential pillars of the house music community, sourcing funds via private and public donations along with raising money through the medium of hosting large-scale club events/festivals around the world.

In 2017 the charity built its first school and orphanage in the Kabale region of Uganda (predominantly know for being one of the poorest and unprivileged parts of Africa). Unfortunately, due to complications, the project collapsed, and it left a large number of orphans & students back at square one with no education or residence (many returning to their local communities 2-3 hours away with shattered dreams).

In November 2018, the charity returned to Kabale to visit a newly purchased plot of land with 39 eager volunteers. Among the volunteers were tradesmen and women, DJs, Promoters, Nurses, Artists, Photographers and Videographers. Some friends, some total strangers.

Throughout the eight-day period, those 39 volunteers became a very personal and emotional family; they worked harder than they even knew they were capable of at times for hours and hours on end with a no-nonsense attitude.

What was achieved in that space of time is something that has had an internal and external impact on everybody it has touched. An abandoned School, Orphanage, Outhouse and tired piece of land now shines brightly as a beacon of hope for an entire community and many generations to come. It is now home to The Abode Project School & Orphanage; a place of education, shelter, opportunity, security, humility and unity; a project that will continue to grow and expand into one of the poorest parts of an entire continent.

Several classrooms, dormitories, offices, a community hub where technological knowledge will be provided to help integrate these children into western society and give them a slice of the life we are so undeserving of in comparison, a music centre where children can nurture their talent for natural rhythm, the list goes on and on…

This is still the very beginning, but with the help of your compassion, affinity and funding we genuinely believe there is no limit to what we can achieve.

This is still the very beginning, but with the help of your compassion, affinity and funding we genuinely believe there is no limit to what we can achieve.

For the price of a pint of beer or some new mascara you can feed an entire family in Kabale for a week, for as little as £20 a month you can pay for a child’s education and board at our school and orphanage. That’s the same price as a round of drinks on a night out that you probably can’t even remember anymore!

Who says the poorest of the poor can’t become scientists, doctors and more? Just because it hasn’t been done before doesn’t mean we can’t be the generation to open the door…

ProCharter’s CEO Andy Fleming commented ‘Everyone involved in the supply, transportation, and handling of the equipment is working tirelessly to ensure the flights operate on schedule to combat the Corona Virus.’

ProCharter recently completed a series of cargo charter flights from Cologne-Bonn, Germany, to Banja Luka for the Republic Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina, to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 virus pandemic. The 500-bed field hospital transported by ProCharter, manufactured by the German company Kleh Systems, and donated by Tehnički Remont Bratunac and Elvaco MetPro, two Bosnian Serb engineering companies owned by the locally raised entrepreneur CEO Slaven Ristic.

Critical Air Cargo On Schedule

The initial flights were met at Banja Luka airport by Government representative President, Milorad Dodik and philanthropist Slaven Ristic. Additional flights are scheduled to take place, transporting further elements of the field hospital, as well as much needed ventilators that have been procured in Russia. As the chosen and preferred charter service provider, ProCharter will be completing an additional series of flights during the coming weeks to further support this effort.

‘Rapid delivery of time-sensitive life support cargo can be the key to any mission success. ProCharter’s legacy in these environments allows us to anticipate operational challenges and swiftly react to customer needs.’
