Choosing the right aircraft
Based on your needs we help you getting everything right. Here are some of the factors we consider when choosing the aircraft for your assignment:
- Speed: Pressurised airplanes flies both higher and faster but in most cases the time difference for the entire flight is small.
- Pressurised cabin: These planes fly at high altitude, giving them a greater range, speed and resistance to adverse weather conditions. However, they also need longer runways – something not all African air strips can offer.
- Non-pressurised cabin: With a square-section fuselage, these planes have roomy cabins and large cargo holds. And because they fly at a lower altitudes, the view from the cabin is often more interesting.
- Number of passengers: The more passengers you have onboard, the shorter the range of your aircraft. At long distance, the weight of the fuel can reduce the number of passengers or cargo capacity. Alternatively intermediate fuel stop may be necessary.
There are both mandatory and non-mandatory costs such as: airport tax, fees for navigation, fees for landing and parking and in-flight catering. Also equipment for special missions such as medivac, evacuation and surveys may influence the choice of aircraft.
