From the UAE…
Outside the world of Gulfstream, MD Helicopter chose Quest Aviation Solutions to be its exclusive sales agent in the United Arab Emirates, covering the Emirates of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Qaiwain, Ras-al-Khaimah and Fujairah.
“We very much look forward to securing new sales in the UAE, mirroring the success MD Helicopters has achieved in other equally demanding markets,” Mike Creed, commercial director of Quest, told Corporate Jet Investor. “After a slow couple of years the appetite for general business aviation and Multi-Mission Light helicopters has improved significantly in the UAE.”

Finally, Dassault Aviation announced that it is about to launch its new Falcon 2000S business jet in India. The jet was certified in India at the beginning of November. It previously was certified in Brazil, Mexico and Turkey. Bangalore is the site for the first Falcon 2000S to be delivered to its buyer in December.
“The exceptional short-field capability of the 2000S — particularly its hot-and-high performance and its ability to operate at London City Airport — combined with its spacious well-appointed cabin, makes it ideal for the Indian market,” Gilles Gautier, Falcon sales VP for EMEA, told Corporate Jet Investor.
