Dubai-based Titan Aviation has placed a Gulfstream G-V, which it has been operating on behalf of a private owner since delivery in October, on San Marino’s register. Captain Sakeer Sheik outlines the advantages of the move: “Our decision was born primarily out of the convenience of intended operations in Europe.”
“We find from a day to day operational point of view that the staff in San Marino are a breath of fresh air to work with. The team has an attitude that nothing is too much bother.”
Captain Sheik has presented last minute requests in light of operational changes, and says that these requests are always accommodated. “Even if we contact them outside of working hours, or over a weekend, they are happy to help. When they do come across something that doesn’t quite fit the box, they seek clarification from the legislation, and are generally able to offer a solution, within 48 hours. They have a good team behind the scenes, with an extremely high level of experience.”
Titan now intends to transfer other aircraft onto the registry.
