TAG Aviation Asia Joins AsBAA Leadership:

AsBAA, the Asian region’s non-for-profit representative trade body for business aviation has announced Phil Balmer, Director Maintenance, of TAG Aviation Asia as the new Chairman of its Hong Kong Committee. The announcement was made at the Hong Kong Committee meeting, 19 January, hosted in TAG’s new offices, Harcourt House, Wan Chai. The meeting was attended by around 30 AsBAA members representing: operators, business support services, [Insurance, Legal, FBO etc.] and included a presentation ceremony to recognise the long-standing contribution of Hongkong Jet CEO, Mr. Denzil White who stood down as Chairman of the committee at the end of 2016.  

AsBAA Chairman, Charlie Mularski shared, “We welcome Phil as Head of the AsBAA Hong Kong Committee. Phil and the team at TAG play a prominent role in supporting local business aviation priorities. We are confident that the AsBAA HK Committee can continue to make improvements on behalf of the wider membership under his leadership. We also take this opportunity to thank Denzil for all the great work he’s done leading and supporting the Hong Kong Committee over the last two years.” Phil shared, "my goal is to continue the excellent momentum which was created from persistence and hard work by the volunteers of AsBAA.

I believe the best way to maximize the opportunities for the business aviation industry is through a unified approach, and AsBAA is now clearly being recognised as the voice of the industry."   The announcement was made on the same day that AsBAA attended a 5th meeting with HKCAD and the Airport Authority in order to take steps forward on the current capacity issues at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

With parking and slots limitations at HKIA recently causing significant problems to business aviation owners, users and service providers, AsBAA has been working closely with the authorities on an action plan to maximise resources, booking software (OCS) and BAPs , and raise awareness of the economic benefits of business aviation to Hong Kong. Mularski said, “The third runway will not be available for 8-10 years, therefore our focus now is on working with the authorities to implement practices that maximise resources and create tangible change.

We were encouraged to see that AsBAA’s recommendations relating to penalties and cancellation guidelines made at earlier meetings have already been implemented. When looking at the statistical impact of the suggested changes, we can see positive change with around a 25% reduction in wasted slots. We will continue this work with the authorities, members and the media to ensure that Hong Kong does not miss out on the economic benefits our industry brings to the city.”

AIRCRAFT OPERATING COST – PLANNING AHEAD

AIRCRAFT OPERATING COST – PLANNING AHEAD

There are a multitude of aircraft operating cost articles written over the years including the occasional quarterly or annual reports describing current state of affairs for a variety of aircraft. If I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times, "no one offers a product that really captures the true cost to operate my aircraft." I couldn't agree with this sentiment more, but that's about to change.

The fact of the matter is there is no one set cost benchmark for any aircraft model on the planet. There are many reasons why operating cost subscription service providers, OEMs or economic cost guides don't capture true operating costs that can be universally applied to a particular model aircraft. Here are the five key reasons why:
