Very productive EBACE 2022 for TAG Aviation with at least two big news: reception of Air Operator Certificate by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands and extension of business aviation pilot training agreement until 2025 with CAE. 

TAG Aviation has already opened a dedicated Cayman office and registered its first managed aircraft which is a Gulfstream 650. Receiving the Cayman AOC will further enhance TAG Aviation’s aircraft management and charter service portfolio activities. The company also holds AOC’s from San Marino, Malta and UK.

Steven Young, President of TAG Aviation, commented:  “The Cayman AOC allows us to extend the scope of TAG’s capabilities and widen our range of bespoke services to our clients by providing the flexibility of various operating solutions.” 

“We are pleased to issue TAG Aviation (Cayman) SEZC with a Cayman Islands Air Operator Certificate. TAG has been a longstanding operator of Cayman Islands registered aircraft for private owners and we are delighted that they will now provide commercial air transport services under Cayman Islands jurisdiction. This evolution to commercial operations demonstrates mutual confidence held by our respective organisations in assuring safe and compliant operations. This also bodes well for the Cayman Islands Aircraft Registry with TAG being a leading operator of Cayman registered aircraft. We look forward to their continued growth and success as they serve the needs of this dynamic industry. ” said Director-General of Civil Aviation, Mr. Richard Smith.

CAE has signed a three-year extension to its pilot training agreement with TAG Aviation. As part of this agreement, TAG Aviation pilots will receive customized training on the Airbus A320, Bombardier Challenger 604, Challenger 605, Bombardier Global 7500, Bombardier Global Express, Bombardier Global Vision, Bombardier Global 6500, Dassault Falcon 2000Ex EASy, Falcon 7X EASy II, Gulfstream 450/550 and Gulfstream 650, at CAE Dallas, CAE Montreal, CAE London Burgess Hill and CAE Dubai business aviation training centres. CAE is the exclusive training provider of TAG Aviation’s entities in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Andrew Kilvington, Head of Training & Standards, TAG Aviation Europe, commented: “Safety is TAG Aviation’s number one priority, and CAE’s training gives our pilots the knowledge and confidence to deliver the peace of mind our customers expect when they fly with us. The quality of CAE’s training and their global training network have made them a trusted partner since 2010.”

Nick Leontidis, CAE’s Group President, Civil Aviation, said: “CAE is in the business of enhancing human performance and operational safety with the most innovative technology, and we are happy that TAG Aviation continues to place its confidence in us for their pilot training,” said Nick Leontidis. We have a valued relationship with TAG Aviation, and they can count on us to provide the industry-leading training experience they have come to expect from CAE.”
