This year it is Moscow-based Vnukovo 3 aviation terminal hosting the Jet Expo 2012, featuring some 100 companies from 27 countries.

Today’s trend in the market is high-pace development, especially taking into account that most jets are now used not to fly their owners on holidays but to business meetings, deal signings or large corporation inspections.

The Jet Expo showcases aircraft with great versatility and design. Bombardier, who have been operating in Russia for a long time, and consider the country a vital and key market brought four of its new business jets.

Italy’s Piaggio Aero is showcasing its new Piaggio P180Avanti twin-engine turboprop aircraft with a Ferrai logo which is often called Aero Ferrari.

158 business jets are registered in Russia and experts predict 525 jets to be imported up to 2020, while in 2021-2030 the number of jets is forecast to reach 1,700 machines.

Whilst looking at various business aviation products I came across a service from ARINC Direct that allows pilots to use mobile devices to access flight planning services – ARINC Direct Mobile. Pilots are able to manage most of the flight planning without a computer. They can create, amend or cancel a flight plan as well as send messages to and fro from the aircraft with the reliability we would insist on.

With these mobile devices pilots have access to real time text and graphic weather reports, are able to order fuel, have radar and have access to airport information -getting the most up to date information available for flight planning.

We can rest assured when we use the services from ARINC Direct for passenger & crew communications and flight support services of a first class service.
