Although already rated as “the best handling service in the world,” Universal Aviation (Booth No. 347) wants to make sure its customers are not keeping the secret to themselves. Accordingly, the division of Universal Weather and Aviation (Booth No. 337) is here at EBACE to give away a year’s worth of ground support at any of its worldwide locations to the winner of a drawing on Thursday morning.

Aircraft with a takeoff weight up to 45,000 kilograms (about 100,000 pounds) will be eligible for as many as 60 visits. Universal Aviation vice president Adolfo Aragon said, “This promotion is an opportunity to introduce our facilities and services [to operators that] may not have been previously exposed to [them].”

Founded in 2001, Universal Aviation has expanded from the U.S. to Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. The parent company is showcasing its European presence and comprehensive services for Europe-based operators, wherever they travel.

Universal’s booth offers interactive demonstrations of the company’s enhanced online services and includes a limited amount of free print and CD-Rom editions of its “UVTripPlanner” pre-flight reference tool with data for over 25,000 airports worldwide.
