 - May 13, 2012, 9:30 AM

Ocean Sky (Stand 1669) is upgrading its 46,000-sq-ft hangar at London’s Luton Airport as part of the development of a new FBO complex. Tooling is being upgraded to provide support for the latest Bombardier aircraft, while the company’s interiors workshop and showroom is also scheduled for a facelift. The refurbishment and improvements call for recruitment of an additional eight qualified engineers by the end of 2012, said the company.

The business aviation services group also has FBOs at Manchester and Prestwick in the UK, as well as in the Spanish Balearic islands of Ibiza and Menorca. It manages a fleet of mid-sized business aircraft throughout Europe, Russia and the Middle East.

Here at the EBACE show this week it is also offering a new iPad case it has developed for pilots that can carry and simultaneously charge up to 10 iPads. It connects, via USB, to a MacBook or power source to facilitate charging and syncing.
