On 15th and 16th August Ravenair hosted Aerobility and Heswall Disabled Children Holiday Fund for a day of fun and exploration at Liverpool John Lennon Airport including experience flights in light aircraft.
Specialised Operations regulation entered into force on Friday 21st April 2017. Ravenair is PART-SPO Declared in addition to maintaining our CAT AOC.
EASA Air Operations Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 Part-SPO (Specialised Operations) applies to any aircraft operation, other than commercial air transport, where the aircraft is used for specialised activities such as agriculture, construction, photography, surveying, observation, patrol and aerial advertisement. Operators engaged in commercial specialised operations or engaged in non-commercial specialised operations using a complex motor-powered aircraft must submit a declaration to the UK CAA about their operation. In addition, a commercial operator conducting a high-risk specialised operation must also apply for and obtain an authorisation from the UK CAA.
We are pleased to announce that we have reached agreement to manage and operate a new Daher SOCATA TBM900 Aircraft. We are working with the U.K. CAA to include the aircraft onto our EU PART-OPS Air Operators Certificate (AOC) Single Engine Turbine (SET-IMC). The aircraft will be based at our Liverpool John Lennon Airport facility.
We have purchased a PA28-201RT Turbo Arrow IV G-GFRA. The aircraft has been delivered to Liverpool and it is being prepared for service. Further details to follow, see fleet page http://www.ravenair.co.uk/fleet/
