Logbook Has Entries For 11,000 Hours In 142 Types
Veteran airline pilot Arthur Stevenson has been appointed to
the position of Chief Pilot of AvStar Aviation Group by its wholly
owned subsidiary, Twin Air Calypso Limited.
Stevenson is an Airline Transport Pilot having flown over 142
different types of aircraft while accumulating over 11,000 flight
hours. Arthur's experience includes more than 11 years as point of
contact with the FAA in the development and continuing operations
of Part 135 Air Carriers. Positions previously held by Arthur
include Line Pilot, Chief Pilot, Company Instructor, Company Check
Airman, and Director of Operations with air carriers operating
aircraft up to 19 passenger seats. Arthur also developed the
"Operations", "Maintenance", "Training" and "First Responders"
manuals for the Monroe County Florida Sheriff's EMS helicopter
operation based in the Florida Keys.
"I am pleased to have someone with Art's credentials join Twin
Air Calypso Limited, Inc. His experience with larger aircraft and
commuter operations will make our transition into these areas
quicker and more efficient. We will be able to develop the required
manuals and procedures 'in-house' thereby making their
implementation easier and more cost effective," said Clayton
Gamber, CEO of AvStar Aviation Group, Inc.
In December 2010, AvStar announced a Letter of Intent had been
signed to purchase 35% of Aircraft Charters, LLC. Aircraft
Charters, LLC is the owner of the aircraft currently leased to and
operated by AvStar's wholly owned subsidiary Twin Air Calypso
Limited, Inc. The purchase is expected to close this month.
"The purchase of Aircraft Charters, LLC will improve the balance
sheet of AvStar while the addition of Art will improve the Income
Statement. With Art's experience we will be able to expedite the
transition to the 'Commuter' operator designation as given by the
FAA. With the 'Commuter' designation Twin Air Calypso Limited, Inc.
will gain worldwide exposure through the airline industry's
established marketing services available only to 'Commuter'
operators," said Clayton Gamber, CEO of AvStar Aviation Group,
