they are diversifying into a new business sector with the lease of BAe RJ85 G-LENM

The Chevron aircraft with 82 all leather seats and a generous seat pitch is capable of
reaching most European destinations and has the RJ characteristics of being able to
operate into and out of airports where runways are short with steep angles of approach

most successful ever British designed and made aircraft. Working with Cello Aviation

  Cello who operate predominantly in Europe has made its name as a VIP charter operator,
using G-RAJJ BAe 146-200 in a 46 seat configuration. This will remain at the core of the
Cello business but the company is also expanding into the A.C.M.I. sector

Cello will manage all aspects of the aircraft's operations including providing flight deck and
cabin crew as well as on board catering. The Chevron aircraft's primary utilisation will be in
the field of ad hoc charter and A.C.M.I. work as well as being available for "Wet Lease"

Chevron Aircraft Maintenance will support both G-LENM & G-RAJJ assisted by Chevron
