Confirmed Go Ahead!
Sofema Aviation Services is pleased to confirm that the following courses are guaranteed to go ahead and we look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to the Training Program:
Steve Bentley, CEO of Sofema Aviation Services and SofemaOnline, explains the Rational behind the forthcoming Aircraft Technical Records and Aircraft Lease Management Training, taking place in Dubai at the beginning of February.
What is the reason for this training?
Simply it is to help operators reduce the losses which are suffered continually whenever an aircraft is returned at the end of the lease.
How significant are the losses suffered by operators returning aircraft?
Unfortunately – they are mouth-watering – Typically up to 2.000.000 USD for a Narrow Body Aircraft and up to 4.000.000 USD for a Wide Body Aircraft.
Can these losses be reduced or negated?
Absolutely & this is the reason for the training – to share understanding, best practice and opportunities which are available to help the Lessee take control of the lease relationship so it can be managed in the best possible way.
Is there a single piece of advice above all else which you want to share?
Yes for sure it is to start early on the journey to return an aircraft 18 months to 24 months out is absolutely not too early. The redelivery process needs to be managed in a controlled and professional way – and with so much at the state, it requires strong ownership of the lease return manager.
Anything else which would be considered as best practice advice?
Sure, the Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation (CAMO) Group should have visibility of the lease return conditions and should ensure careful consideration is given throughout the duration of the Lease.
Where is the training taking place?
Both courses are taking place in the Avenue Hotel Deira Dubai at the beginning of February running from Sunday February 2nd to Thursday February 6th.
How much are the courses?
Sofema Aviation Services and SofemaOnline issued a course completion certificate to our 25,000th delegate during 2019 – the reason we see a strong interest in our courses is a combination of professional delivery and competitive pricing. 675 USD for the Technical Records Course and 955 USD for the Lessee Course.
Combine them both for a minimum saving of 15% (2 delegates together on both courses will receive a 25% discount).
Note – Discounts are available for both courses as well as for Groups – Please email email@example.com to find out more regarding the availability of multi-course and Multi Delegate discount.
