“[New billionaires in fast-growing countries] have to buy longer-range airplanes. If you’re flying from Mongolia to Nigeria, it’s either a three-day journey flying commercial or a nine-hour flight on your jet.”
Overseas Maintenance Service Launches
Single Point of Contact, based in Corona, Calif., has introduced an aircraft maintenance service exclusively for overseas locations. Pricing depends on the regions where an operator needs coverage and the length of the contract. A map at
www.singlepointassist.com shows airports covered and the support available at each. Areas not in the network may be added by request. Single Point isn't a directory service, said president Richard Gardner, but "an on-demand, hands-on solution to your maintenance issue."
