London Oxford Airport has continued to grow its business aviation activities over the past 12 months, while its tenants, such as Hangar8, also continue to expand their operations. To celebrate six years of running the OxfordJet FBO, the airport is making an offer for the duration of EBACE to halve landing and parking fees for the rest of the year for operators of business aircraft of more than 4 metric tons mtow, subject to availability.
Air Medical Ltd., better known as AirMed, has seen continued growth during the last year and is looking to replace two of its Cheyenne turboprop air ambulances with new equipment. The Oxford, UK-based operator’s current fleet comprises a pair of Learjet 35As and four Cheyennes.
Nextant Aerospace announced yesterday that Singapore-based air charter firm Asia Pacific Jets placed an order for 10 Nextant 400XTs, the remanufactured Beechjet 400A/400XP with new Williams FJ44-3AP engines, Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 avionics and other upgrades. At list prices, the order is worth more than $40 million. All 10 aircraft will be delivered to Asia Pacific Jets over the next three years, with some outfitted as air ambulances and the rest as traditional business jets.
