Showtime – the magic word for every musician, actor or artist meaning that the spotlight is on and it’s time to perform. While the professionals before the show spend hours, days and weeks rehearsing before stepping onto the stage, the Premium Jet team gets thrown directly from their everyday work into the 3 days frenzy of the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE). And that’s exactly the way we want it to be as they’re not there for acting but to represent our company with its values and achievements.
Next to a plethora of announcements and media releases covering all aspects of the business aviation industry there were 2 product improvements of existing aircraft to be noted:
- Bombardier worked on the whole Global Express product line. As the name says, both the Global 5500 and Global 6500 will have a longer range than their respective predecessors. At the same time, the Global 7000 developed into the Global 7500.
- By raising the fuel capacity and weight improvement, Honda managed to improve the range of its HondaJet by more than 200 nm. In its newest version the aircraft needs less runway length for take-offs and landings and also incorporates numerous further upgrades. The new model will be marketed under the “Elite” label.
EBACE as seen by Premium Jet
It goes without saying that we couldn’t have a personal conversation with every show visitor. Nevertheless there was a steady flow of guests at our booth during the whole 3 days – maybe a few more when the traditional Customer Champagne Mingle took place on Wednesday evening.
The signature of the agreement between Premium Jet and Osprey Flight Solutions (see picture) found good media coverage.
We would like to thank all our customers and partners for the interesting discussions and fruitful meetings. The date of EBACE 2019 (21st to 23rd May) is already entered into our agenda. We hope that the same stays true for you – and if there’s anything we can do for you in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us.
