At Alpha2Bravo we pride ourselves in getting your aircraft from A2B in the quickest, most efficient and cost effective way, not to mention the small matter of as safely as possible to both pilot and aircraft.
There are a number of things to consider when taking an aircraft on a trans-oceanic ferry flight.Whilst we do occasionally install temporary ferry tanks, we do so as a last resort so as not to compromise safety.
It is our feeling that it is almost impossible to restore an aircraft, especially a brand new aircraft to its pre-tanked condition because to remove seats, install framework etc to carry a large and heavy aluminum installation even in the most careful of installations will leave some very minor tell tale signs and in some installations I have witnessed, significantly more than that. When we tank, we use the widely renowned pioneers in this field to ensure damage limitation is kept to acceptable and calculated levels.
The other areas whereby some company's quotes appear cheap are in the hidden extras. Whilst we ensure the customer is kept up to date at every stage of events, sometimes extras are incurred but again our customers are always fully aware of proceedings. It may be that dependant upon time of year, it is necessary to keep an aircraft hangared overnight to avoid the risk of having to pay for aircraft heat and or de icing which can prove costly.
I can also guarantee that our pilots will not remove icing in a way that could adversely affect the condition of the aircrafts coachwork or screens. At Alpha2Bravo, we do not cut corners to increase our profit margin. The other significant factor that allows us to be more than competitive is that the company is owned by the pilots that fly your aircraft.
We don't pay out any agent fees or other commissions and we don't have expensive offices or other associated overheads which inflate the cost. In short we are pilots who love what we do and our roster of pilots have impeccable service records without incident, accident or violation. With this in mind, we hope you can make an informed decision and allow us to deliver your aircraft in the state it was meant to reach you.
