Dagmar Grossmann celebrates an aviation hat trick.

Tuesday 19th June 2012

Building on a successful and distinguished international aviation career, Dagmar Grossmann, CEO of Grossmann Jet Service, founder of CEPA and accomplished aviation author celebrates a hat trick of success in the business this month.

Dagmar, an Austrian national is marking 30 successful years in aviation with the publication of her third book 'Group Dynamics and the Orientation of a Newly Formed Foundation'* and the third anniversary of CEPA (Central European Private Aviation Association).

Dagmar founded Grossmann Jet Service in the Czech Republic in 2004, establishing the first ever business aviation company within the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. Operating out of Prague's Ruzyne Airport, the company has become the leading business aviation operator in the Central European region. Grossmann Jet offers a breadth of expertise including broking, charter, and aircraft management services.

Its charter fleet includes an Embraer Legacy 600 and Hawker 900 XP. The company also runs a CEE Business Jet Set Up Centre, providing independent advice to the business aviation community in the CEE.

Calling on her expertise in consultation, aircraft management, recruitment, marketing, communications, operations management and sales, Dagmar launched business aviation platform CEPA (Central Europe Private Aviation) in 2009. CEPA supports the development of business aviation in the Central European Region and now embraces an impressive 80-strong membership.

Hard on the heels of CEPA's success, Dagmar is now working on the establishment of a sister business aviation association, SOPA (South East Europe Private Aviation), which supports the development of business aviation in South East Europe.

Dagmar's aviation writing career began in 2011 with the launch of German language version 'Mythos Pilot" (ISBN 978-3854852933) which she co-authored with Judith Grohmann exploring what makes pilots tick. Following its sell out success, she went on to write "The significance of changes brought about by The Very Light Jet" (ISBN 978-80-260-05070) analysing the impact of the VLJ on each segment of the bizjet market, published in English.

Published in German in 2012, her latest book, 'Group Dynamics and the Orientation of a Newly Formed Foundation' (ISBN 978-3-639-38943-2) explores the connections between Eastern and Western Europe from an aviation perspective. Dagmar's next literary piece will focus on the financial cycles in aviation exploring buyer behaviour and key decision making factors when it comes to purchasing an aircraft.

An accomplished speaker, Dagmar has taken part in a number of high profile forums and conferences including leading the panel discussion at the XXI Economic Forum in Krynica Zdroj, Poland in 2011 which focused on how economic innovations are seen by member countries of the European Union as an opportunity to boost economic growth; participating in the panel discussion entitled "Innovative Economy in Modern Europe" at The European Parliament by invitation of the Polish Government in 2011 and speaking at The European Business Aviation Conference (EBACE) in 2010 to provide insight into the development of the Central and Eastern European Business Aviation Market.

Dagmar will be speaking at this month's MIU Events' Irish Business Aviation Convention in Shannon during 27-28th June. She will participate in a panel discussion to address the issues surrounding air charter operations, such as regulations, harmonisation across Europe, fuel prices, security, technical issues, ETS, illegal charters, price fixing and criminalisation of accidents.
