Empire Aviation Group builds on San Marino AOC to develop global management and charter business
May 25, 2016 (Geneva)

San Marino AOCproviding EAG with a global base for the operation and charter of its growing managed aircraft fleet

May 2016 (EBACE, Geneva):Dubai-based Empire Aviation Group (EAG) subsidiary - Empire Aviation San Marino–is building its registered fleet in San Marino, following the award in 2015 of an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for aircraft management and charter by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Republic of San Marino. EAG currently has two managed aircraft registered in San Marino with four further managed business jets in the pipeline for mid year registration.

In September 2015, EAG became the first aviation company from the Middle East to be awarded an AOC by San Marino, where the company now has a dedicated office supporting tworegistered aircraft – Dassault Falcon 7X and a Bombardier Challenger 300.

The San Marino AOC enables Empire Aviation’s registered aircraft to perform worldwide commercial air operations, regardless of the aircraft base. EAGalso holds a United Arab Emirates AOC and the company currently manages a fleet of 25business jets with bases in the UAE,Oman, Nigeria, India and Hong Kong.

Commenting on the San Marino operations, Paras Dhamecha, Executive Director of Empire Aviation Group, said: “We were very pleased
to be granted an AOC by the San Marino CAA and our local operation is working very effectively in attracting and supporting managed aircraft owners. The AOC provides Empire Aviation the flexibility to offer our owners various operating solutions and bases for their aircraft and also includes the option of placing their aircraft on commercial charters. Our fleet is growing, with strong interest from owners to bring additional business jets under the AOC. San Marino is proving to be a very attractive jurisdiction for owners to register their business jets, with a well managed and regulated aircraft registry and the reassurance of compliance with all the appropriate international standards.”

The Republic of San Marino is a member State of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialized agency of the United Nations, created to promote the safe and orderly development of international civil aviation throughout the world. San Marino is also member state of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC).
Ing. Marco Conti, Director Generalof San Marino CAA, added: “The CAA is working to support Empire Aviation in building its San Marino Aircraft Registry and we are pleased to supportthe company’s international development. EAG is expanding strongly and is currently adding business jets to the registry at the rate of one per month, which is an outstanding performance.”
Empire Aviation Group has rapidly expanded its international operations over the last three years, with the group’s first fully fledged overseas branch in Bangalore, India; a dedicated US aircraft sales office in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA; and new operations setup in Hong Kong.
