Great start to 2014! This is the first newsletter for some time, after having had a challenging but ultimately successful 2013. 2014 got off to a flying start for Skyworld Aviation, having delivered ten aircraft at the back end of December / early January. This came as a welcome ‘new beginning’ after the first few months of 2013 falling short of expectations! Whilst most were winding down, the last week of December was a hive of activity at Skyworld, and during the first quarter of 2014 we delivered three ATR 72’s, three Saab 340B’s, two Airbus A320’s, one ERJ 145 and one Jetstream 32.
