Posted 2 March 2016 · Add Comment

Abu Dhabi Aviation (ADA) – the Middle East's largest commercial helicopter operator – is gearing up for expansion in Saudi Arabia following the competition of a financial feasibility study and business plan by its joint venture ADA Millennium Consulting (ADAME).

ADA is now to formally start an application to the the Kingdom’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) for a Part 135 license.
ADA has successfully conducted helicopter operations in Saudi Arabia for a number of years under end user licenses but says on GACA approval of a Part 135 license, it will expand its subsidiary in the Kingdom by operating under its own license.
ADAME’s Chief Executive Officer, John Bowell said: “ADAME’s credentials in providing this service, derives from the fact that a number of our consultants have previously applied for and set up Air Operator Certificates in the UK, Germany, Iceland, Nigeria, Afghanistan and Libya.’’
ADA Millennium Consulting – the recently established consultancy is a partnership between Abu Dhabi Aviation and jcba Limited; a British management consultancy, specialist in aviation and hospitality. To date, ADA Millennium has the experience of working with over 60 companies around the world.
Abu Dhabi Aviation operates globally including in the UAE, KSA, Jordan, India, Afghanistan and Spain and conducts 3rd party maintenance through its AgustaWestland Aviation Services subsidiary.
