Barcelona-based charter operator Corporate Jets XXI is targeting the Middle East after turbulence hit a key part of its domestic market - executives from the once-booming Spanish building sector. The company has relocated its Dassault Falcon 900C to Saudi Arabia in an arrangement with a business owner in Riyadh. Although the trijet's air operator's certificate remains in Spain, Corporate Jets XXI will offer the aircraft for charter as its main user will fly it only 40% of the time.


Embraer has appointed Johannesburg, South Africa-based AdoAir Maintenance as an authorised service centre. AdoAir, a division of the AdoAir Aviation, will provide routine checks and scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the Legacy 600 jet and Phenom 100 and 300 business jets.


Hangar 10 has opened its business aviation services complex in Kansas City, Missouri and is awaiting completion of an new 8,450m2 (91,000ft2) facility at the same site, which will provide a 2,600m2 executive terminal, pilot quarters and three hangars totalling 5,200m2.
