The UK’s Gama Aviation has established a new maintenance operation at its Farnborough Airport headquarters to comply with pending European JAR Subpart M requirements for supporting its charter/management fleet. It can also now offer line support to other operators at the London-area airport. Gama has just added a Challenger 601 and a Hawker 800XP to its fleet and says that several of its management clients plan to replace their aircraft during the next 12 months.

For the July 2 Live 8 rock concert, Gama set up and ran a temporary heliport in London’s Hyde Park. The heliport–the first of its kind in one of Britain’s “Royal Parks”–transferred performers to and from the London event and other Live 8 concerts being held around Europe.
