Empire Aviation Group (EAG), a subsidiary of Air Works India, is the leading private aviation specialist in the Middle East, operating the region’s largest managed fleet of executive jets including models from all the major global manufacturers.
EAG focuses on aircraft asset management – helping owners acquire an aircraft and then optimise their investment by operating and maintaining it to the standards required to protect its long term value. EAG offers a flexible, integrated asset management approach to owners to meet different business models, such as owner-user; partial use and charter only. A clear understanding of the objectives of ownership is vital to create a tailored business plan to generate optimal value from the aircraft.
This is the basis of the EAG tailored approach; focusing on aircraft asset management and managing all other specialised support activities, such as physical maintenance and quality assurance - which is why the company has a team of more than 15 professionals just in this area, and more than 100 staff in total.
EAG actively encourages owners’ participation in management, forming close partnerships and with the company principals working directly with owners in a very transparent process. The basis of a successful aircraft manager-owner relationship is trust and the whole management process is open – with every dollar of cost itemised and books open to owner audits.
EAG is developing this core management service beyond the UAE, so that the company is able to support owners and aircraft from Europe to the Middle East and India.
