Meeting new companies, sometime you have a clear impression, people are trying to invent the wheel once again.  This time and this conversation, made us see very clear – it is already there for centuries, so no need to try to reinvent, when you can do something better.

There is a brilliant saying – these are all familiar faces. Exactly that was our great surprise when we met two co-founders of Steering Partners.

For many peoples in business aviation word names of Christophe Gibert and Vladimir Velebit have the meaning, which is the same a high quality brand name.

First question 50skyshades had to both of co-founders was very simple – how many years of experience in the field they have together? Can you imagine – 30! If we  must say in two words – very impressive.

So l et us share some basic points we discussed with Steering Partners regarding changing business aviation market.

“There came a moment, when we both realized it is time for some changes. We are in the same business. The  only difference now – it is our own company , which let us to offer clients our approach and our vision. It is in the same time a luxury and huge responsibility” – commented Christophe Gibert.

“ It is logical and obvious – globalization process. Operators are doing everything possible to be more effective, to reduce costs, to have global presence. We see our way different. We are the real “personal touch” – told Vladimir Velebit.
