ProCharter is pleased to announce we’ve moved into a brand new office at DWC Business Park. As one of the first tenants to commit to the new facility, the ProCharter team is well placed to continue providing the region with Aviation Solutions. “We recognize the future of aviation in Dubai will be at DWC, and we want to be part of the growth and development,” said Steve Day, Regional Director. “The business park is attracting a lot of interest from existing companies in Dubai as well as new customers, with Expo 2020 a focus for many. We have had excellent service from DWC authority and the move was completed right on schedule.”

“2014 was an extremely busy year for the Dubai Office, with some exciting projects keeping the whole team totally engaged and committed. One of our strengths is the quality of our staff, who are motivated to provide creative and effective solutions to our customers’ requirements,” said Steve. “We are already busy working on several new initiatives and look forward to continuing the momentum throughout 2015.”

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.
