Emerald Media and
BlueSky are delighted to confirm that they are
teaming with the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS)
as partner and hosts for the second SETops (Single
Engined Turboprop Conference).
The full day event
will take place on Friday, 29th September at 4
Hamilton Place, London W1J 7BQ.
This event follows
on from the well-attended
October 2016 Conference
at London Oxford Airport as the industry prepared
for a change in the EASA rules. On March 1st this
year the European Commission duly confirmed
amendments to the Air Operations regulation
approving commercial air transport operations with
single-engined turbine aircraft in IMC or at night
(CAT SET-IMC) in Europe.
The new EASA
regulation establishes a framework for CAT SET-IMC
operations to open in 32 European states and in so
doing, ushers in a new entry level business charter
market for aircraft such as the Daher TBM 950;
Pilatus PC-12NG and Cessna Grand Caravan, plus new
arrivals like the Denali and Piper M600.
2016 Conference & Fly-In at London
Oxford Airport - a sell-out event!
The new ruling
will be the catalyst to open up new routes from
smaller airfields which can be operated safely and
efficiently only by single-engine turbine
aeroplanes. The move is already spawning new
business models, several of which will be
represented at this forthcoming event. This
EASA ruling is a significant development since
several attempts in the past two decades has failed
to amass sufficient consensus among EU states.
the principal SETops manufacturers will participate,
and as we shape the programme, we would like to hear
from international SETops players who would be
interested in contributing.
