Montreal, Quebec-based ACASS has two aircraft on static display here at MEBA, a Bombardier Challenger 601 and 604. Both are available for immediate sale. In addition to these, the company is also offering the sale or lease of two Global 5000 business jets and an AgustaWestland AW139 helicopter.

While highly visible, the offering of the Challengers represents only one of the many aviation services that ACASS provides. Founded in 1994, the company also offers placement of flight and ground crews drawn from its network of more than 7,000 pilots, cabin crew, maintenance engineers and administrative support personnel.
Other services include aircraft management, charter services and interim lift solutions.

“Our close collaboration with major business jet manufacturers and large aircraft operators has fueled most of our growth through the provisioning of experienced, internationally certified pilots and crew,” said ACASS president and CEO Andre Khury.
“Our long-term presence in the Middle East has enabled us to become a significant organization in the management and operational support of private jets. ACASS is currently operating four widebody aircraft on behalf of prominent groups and high-net-worth individuals in the region.”

ACASS reports serving more than 2,000 flight departments in more than 25 countries and having long-lasting relationships with a client base that includes Fortune 500 companies, heads of state and VVIPs. It has 100 full-time employees.
