Jersey Business Ortac Operations Management Launches New Full Service Solution for Business Aircraft


Coinciding with the Ports of Jersey’s Aviation Conference Exhibition, Jersey-based Ortac Operations Management Limited today officially launches its full service offering for companies and private owners of business aircraft. It is successfully launching the product with four aircraft already under management, including Falcon 900LX and the new Citation Latitude.

Ortac Operations Management Limited (“Ortac”) provides full operational management services to the owners of business aircraft and is a fully functioning aircraft management organisation with three experienced aviation professionals as owner-directors.

Ortac’s location in the Island of Jersey permits them to offer aircraft Principals a unique alternative to Part NCC, allowing clients to retain their existing operational structures and current flexibility whilst still meeting the same safety and compliance standards.

This unique solution enables a smooth continuation of operation and significant savings, as there is no requirement to retrain crews or engage personnel to fulfil management roles associated with the new regulation.

Ortac deliver a credible and real operational management solution for owners and operators of aircraft from their base in Jersey and assume responsibility for the provision of Nominated Airworthiness Technical Representation, Safety Management, Flight Operations Representation, Compliance Monitoring and Accountable Manager Representation.  These services are rendered by experienced professionals who are known to and accepted by the various aircraft registries as suitable persons to fulfil these roles.

Ortac is in the exclusive position of being able to supply a real, commercially active flight operations management company from an offshore base with credible individuals able to provide the required Post-Holder Functions. The offering will therefore provide clients with a credible and tangible offshore operator, as opposed to a “brass plate” solution to the operational requirements.

Ortac also provides services and expertise in wealth structuring and management in connection with aviation.

Director and Head of Flight Operations at Ortac Philip Stott commented:

“At Ortac we aren’t only well-versed in the legislative changes impacting aviation in Europe, we also have decades of practical experience in the industry. With the recently introduced Part-NCC, we are ready and equipped to provide a one-stop shop that guarantees optimum compliance and flexibility, all while taking the complexity and burden of Part-NCC off clients’ hands.”

Director and Airworthiness Technical Representative at Ortac, Tobi Mathews, commented:

“Our low key base provides clients with exceptional and unique benefits including a secure and stable offshore jurisdiction, a highly-regulated financial services industry and a team on the ground with tried and tested experience across all areas of our operations. By combining our experience of aviation operational management with in-house specialist aviation legal know-how and expertise, we can demonstrate a robust and proven track record to clients.”
