Delivering value and benefits to Europeans since 1927

The sector connects distant and remote regions, spurs investment and business, and acts as an enabler for regional and national economic development. The numbers speak for themselves: BizAv accounts for almost 380,000 jobs (direct/indirect), EUR87 billion in output, significant time savings when compared to commercial aviation and provides critical connectivity across Europes’ cities and regions.

It's exciting and ever-changing

I always dreamt of being a pilot, but my career path didn’t take me there directly, says Cecilie Oyas, Head of US Operations and Pilot at Stratajet.


My business depends on access

When I started with Channel IT in 2003, I was using commercial aviation. Four years later I switched to Business Aviation, and it has now become indispensable to my business. Here’s why, explains Bassim Haidar, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Channel IT Group.


Combining a passion for flying and a desire to save lives

An intensive care anaesthetist in a hospital, I am also incredibly lucky to work in an air ambulance team. I have done this for nearly 40 years, starting out as a young medical student and now I am Medical Director, responsible for medical evacuations. My job allows me to combine the best of both worlds: a passion for flying and a desire to save lives, explains Dr. Hamida Chaouky, Medical Director at Airlec Médical.


I get to work with the most advanced aircraft on the market

I’ve always had a strong interest in aviation and started working in that field when I was 17. I spent 23 years in military aviation before joining NetJets in 2008 as an avionics manager. In 2015, I became the head of engineering, explains Paulo Pestana, Head of Engineering, NetJets.


Passengers are my priority

I’ve been working in Business Aviation for the past 10 years. I started off as a Customer Service Agent (CSR) with Universal Aviation, and since 2014 I’ve been with Signature Flight Support, based at Dublin Airport, says Fiona Madden, Customer Service Agent at Signature Flight Support.


Every mission is special

I’ve been working in aviation for 10 years. After managing a major flight school in Belgium, I joined Business Aviation in 2013 both as a pilot and as a safety manager for ASL / JetNetherlands – and I’ve never regretted that decision, explains Maxime Wauters, Pilot and Safety Manager at ASL/JetNetherlands.
