Eviation Partners with Clay Lacy Aviation for Alice All-Electric Aircraft Charging Stations
Eviation Aircraft, a global manufacturer of all-electric aircraft, today announced a partnership with Clay Lacy Aviation to provide electric charging as part of its Fixed Based Operator (FBO) network of services. The partnership is the first FBO agreement for Eviation that will allow for the charging of Alice, its all-electric aircraft, at all Clay Lacy Aviation FBOs in preparation for the plane's expected entry into service in 2024.

For more than 50 years, Clay Lacy Aviation has offered aircraft management, charter, maintenance, avionics, interiors, aircraft cleaning and FBO services which will now include electric aircraft charging. In 2020, the company developed a comprehensive sustainability strategy to reduce its carbon footprint and the environmental impact of Clay Lacy Aviation facilities and its clients. Adding charging services for the nine-passenger, two-crew member, emission-free Alice is another step toward the two companies' shared vision for a sustainable aviation industry.

Clay Lacy has long prided itself on industry firsts and we are now adding yet another through our partnership with Eviation, One of those firsts was introducing the first carbon offset program and a robust sustainability strategy in the aircraft management industry. We are proud to take that a giant step further with charging the zero-emission Alice at our FBOs.

This partnership is just the beginning for Eviation as we look to build out the supporting infrastructure needed to bring electric aviation to life, With a network of visionary FBOs, we can ensure accessible, quick and seamless charging as we march toward a cleaner aviation future.

Optimization of Air Cargo Handling Processes thanks to AI and Telematics

INFORM Institut für Operations Research und Management GmbH | May 19, 2020

Keeping track of unit load devices (ULDs), containers, and dollies has been a major challenge for ground handlers over the years. The difficulty that involves gathering real-time information on the status of such assets has led to several inefficiencies when trying to control them. The result: Excessive costs due to inadequate manpower and ground support equipment (GSE) allocation. To address this problematic, INFORM GmbH teamed up with Blumenbecker Technik GmbH. In a joint effort, they developed the industry’s first solution that facilitates managing and maintaining dolly fleets. This smart tool helps to answer the most critical operational questions: Where exactly is the ground support equipment located? What are the current maintenance requirements? To what extent is the overall dolly fleet being used? How does it work? By combining AI and telematics, ground handlers can track and locate every ULD and dolly on the apron within seconds. This allows operators to plan and manage their GSE´s capacity utilization based on the respective task more optimally.

test Q&A WITH ED BREAULT

aprimo | March 31, 2020

MEDIA 7: What’s your superpower? ED BREAULT: I would say it’s applying the full spectrum of art and science that is required in marketing today. Not just left or right brained, but whole-brained strategy. Being human yet data-driven and really understanding numbers and (the right) metrics to make connections to business drivers. Add storytelling to that, so I can effectively communicate to my team, the CEO and CFO as well as my Board of Directors on those metrics, and connecting all that we are doing in marketing to the mission of the business. Then quickly shifting gears to the art and creative aspects of marketing that are required to engage an audience and tell great commercial stories that take complex concepts and craft them in a way that is interesting for people to pay attention to. I have to be the ultimate point of truth for the brand.

ATPCO introduces new Reassurance UPAs at no cost to airlines

TravelDailyNews International | April 08, 2020

ATPCO has embarked on a pro-bono initiative to help airlines, sales channels, and people who fly, and we thought you might be interested in knowing about it. While most airlines have cut back schedules significantly or are even grounded at the moment, it’s a fluid situation. There are still many flights operating, some scheduled flights are being brought back into operation already, and there is still flight shopping for the future. Those traveling now - and those who will fly again in the future - are rightfully concerned about their health and safety when they travel. ATPCO saw an urgent need to help convey the measures airlines are taking to protect passengers when they are considering flights to purchase.
