“We appreciate the direct lines with the knowledgeable engineering and production people plus their hands-on way of working. The whole project team is focused on delivering a great end-result”, says Erik Scheidt, Managing Director and pilot at K5-Aviation. “We have been accustomed to their skills in previous projects and will need the same during the ACJ330 outfit.”
