3

reasons (of many)

For which it is worth
having your own plane

Independence

Your own airplane is ideal for those who need to travel a lot for business. W these days, traveling by car is becoming increasingly cumbersome, time-consuming and unfortunately unfortunately dangerous. Cruise planes, on the other hand, do not fly everywhere and at all times, time is also often lost for connecting flights. Having your own plane, therefore, you can be fully independent, as well as quickly and safely reach even distant travel destinations.

Save

Time is money, and while this statement seems to be often misused these days, it is fully justified in the case of companies with their own aircraft. Low operating costs operation costs, favorable leasing, high flexibility in travel planning and time savings for of executives are obvious advantages of the “company machine” that translate into the finances of the enterprises.

A dream come true

Who among us has not dreamed as a child to imitate pilots - those military and those airline pilots - to feel like a bird and take to the skies? Now these dreams are within reach, owning your own plane, you can fully enjoy the feeling of freedom and unlimited space.

News

GB Aircraft has delivered to a private user a new Cessna T182T Turbo Skylane with SP-THD identification markings. This is the first turbocharged version of the aircraft in Poland after Textron Aviation resumed production of the model last year. The aircraft is equipped as standard with Garmin G1000NXi avionics (glass cockpit), heated propeller and oxygen installation, and the delivery took place at EPRU Częstochowa Rudniki Airport. GB Aircraft, a long-time representative of Cessna in Poland, has delivered nearly 30 new Cessna aircraft of Skyhawk, Skylane, Stationair and Grand Caravan models to customers in its 18 years of operation.

The Goldwings Flight Academy flight school has taken delivery of another new PS-28 Cruiser aircraft. The aircraft with registration marks SP-CFI certified for VFR Day flights under the EASA Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) category is the fifth such aircraft at the center. Currently, the school’s fleet consists of three PS-28N Cruiser (VFR Day & Night) and two PS-28 Cruiser (VFR Day) aircraft. The PS-28 Cruiser has a class-leading airframe residual life of 11,000 hours and is equipped with an advanced Dynon SkyView HDX1100 glass cockpit avionics, Sensenich propeller and additional cabin heating and ventilation system. PS-28 Cruiser aircraft have already flown more than 40,000 hours in training in Poland.

The PS-28 Cruiser aircraft with SP-GBC markings has flown 6,000 hours in training pilots for PPL(A) licenses during its nine years of service at Warsaw’s Ventum Air Flight Academy. The SP-GBC is the first aircraft from Cruiser Aircraft to be imported by GB Aircraft in 2014. Since then, the PS-28 Cruiser aircraft fleet, now numbering 14 aircraft at 4 aviation centers, has already flown nearly 40,000 hours in training. CS-LSA-certified PS-28 Cruiser aircraft are offered in two versions: PS-28 Cruiser for VFR Day flights and PS-28N Cruiser for VFR Day & Night flights.

The PS-28 Cruiser features the longest airframe life in the class at as much as 11,000 hours. Aircraft of competing companies have this parameter significantly reduced, it is only 6,000 – 7,000 hours. This not only demonstrates the high durability of the PS-28 Cruiser aircraft’s design, but also affects its higher resale value.

The extraordinary ease of piloting, simplicity of operation, reliability and significantly lower operating costs than competitors have resulted in several hundred of these machines flying around the world.
