History

Eclair Aviation - established in 2012

History

Eclair Aviation was established in 2012 with the aim to operate a single Piaggio P. 180 Avanti II for its owner. Shortly afterwards, the Company was granted the AOC licence and started commercial operation. 2013 saw Eclair Aviation add a second aircraft to its fleet, a Gulfstream G-200, and start operating worldwide.

In 2014 Eclair Aviation launched a project of providing operational support to Praga Aviation, a King Air C-90 and Let L-410 fleet operator, and sold the Piaggio Avanti. 2015 was a year of major expansion: the Company extended its fleet with another Gulfstream G-200 plus a Cessna 525 CJ2 while hiring several new employees, including a certified technician, with the ambition of forming a team prepared for all challenges posed by the world of business aviation. Later that year, the Company rented new offices and a new site used as a planning & operations centre.
