Second Annual Opportunities in Business Jets 2014 meets in Malta in April.

Monday 17th March 2014

The second Opportunities in Business Jets conference to be chaired by Fiona Healy, Legal Counsel, Aircraft Corporate Services (Malta) Limited will take place in Malta on 2nd April 2014. This one day conference is essential for anyone seeking to keep up with developing trends in the international business jet market and uniquely is focused on the operator's perspective. Over twenty operators are already registered to attend. The conference, to be held at the Westin Dragonara Resort, aims to tackle issues that challenge the development of business aviation internationally and will consist of panel-led discussions and industry leader led round tables. The conference also aims to link up issues from a number of different regions allowing delegates to share their knowledge and experience.

Discussions will focus on regulatory, financial, fiscal and legal issues, with the conference highlighting the main issues affecting financing, cooperation between financiers and operators and challenges facing large, medium and small private jet charter operators in the Middle East. The conference will also centre on technical issues that financiers, buyers and operators need to be aware of; the transaction impact the International Registry has, the extra steps it creates, the costs involved and the timing implications. It will also explore the practical side of insurance and repossessions and look at aircraft financing in Africa.

Following the panel discussions there will be a number of champagne roundtable discussions hosted by leading industry experts. To maximise the roundtable sessions conference delegates select the subjects of most interest to their specific area and use the opportunity for networking and debating the hot topics with their peers.

It is anticipated that some one hundred delegates will include jet operators, financiers, regulators, associations, registries, regulators, insurers, OEMs, brokers, lawyers and other specialist service providers to the business jet industry. The conference, which is being organised in conjunction with Quaynote Communications, will provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about business aviation particularly in markets such as the Middle East and Africa. Delegates will also benefit from networking with leading aviation experts from all over the world. This networking forum will offer delegates the ideal opportunity to meet with senior industry figures and update their knowledge of key developments in the sector.

ACS will further be supporting the business aviation community when it exhibits at this year's EBACE on booth 6240 in Hall 6.  Captain Mike O'Brien, Head of Flight Operations with the Maltese Civil Aviation Directorate will join the ACS team at the booth every day between 2pm and 4pm to take queries from operators looking to set up operations in Malta.
