51 North Group adds Falcon 900 to its fleet

Posted 27 November 2017 · Add Comment

The 51 North Group announced the addition of a Falcon 900 to the Executive Aviation Services fleet, which will be based at London's Biggin Hill Airport and available for charter from January 2018.



A popular jet for charter flights, its 4,000 nm range and 7.5 hours’ flying time makes it suitable for destinations including New York and Dubai. The Falcon 900 is also certified for London City Airport operations.
 
Offering a spacious cabin, it provides comfortable accommodation for between 8 to 12 passengers, featuring double club seating, a dining & entertainment area, and generous storage capacity.  

“Following our acquisition of Gloucestershire-based management and charter operator EAS last summer, we have been actively looking to add larger aircraft to complement our existing fleet, so are duly delighted to add this jet to our charter fleet,” 51 North Chairman Neil Cochrane said.
 
“51 North is well versed in operating large, privately-managed aircraft like our Gulfstream G550, but this will be EAS’ first long-range offering for charter. The addition helps us to further broaden our presence in the charter market and deliver the exemplary service Executive Aviation Services is renowned for.”
 
51 North, which is marking its 10th anniversary this year, is based at Farnborough Airport. It acquired long established management and charter operator Executive Aviation Services in August 2016, marrying up two family-run and managed businesses and gaining a UK AOC.
 
The 51 North Group fleet includes a Gulfstream G550, Citation Bravos and an Airbus Helicopters’ EC155B.
