FREMONT, CA: Netherland-based aerial services provider, Zeusch Aviation, has taken the next step towards its quest to earn its Air Operator's Certificate (AOC). On June 17, 2020, the company was named as a Continuing Airworthiness Management Organization (CAMO). The company operates a King Air fleet used for broadcast relay services, aerial surveillance, medevac, transplant flights, and aerial mapping. The first Zeusch aircraft to be managed under the CAMO is the PH-ZBZ, a King Air C90A. Currently, preparations are underway to add its Beechcraft B200 Super King Air in full swing. The remaining aircrafts in the fleet, a second King Air C90A, and a second Super King B200 will be migrated over within the next year.
"By taking airworthiness management in-house and establishing our own CAMO certificate, we are no longer dependent on a third-party CAMO service for which we are not the sole customer. Now we can determine when and where the maintenance of the King Air C90A will be performed. Our customers will benefit by having greater access to our aircraft as we plan and manage our own maintenance schedules. As a CAMO we can also be assured of increased fleet availability and reliability," said Managing Director Herman van Kranenburg.
Danny van Ieperen will join Zeusch as an in house CAMO specialist. As a CAMO, Zeusch Aviation will now be responsible for the management of every element relating to the aircraft's airworthiness, including handling maintenance schedules and ensuring all required certificates are valid at all times of operation. All the maintenance will be carried out by an external contracted maintenance company to ensure safety standards are met and to assure proper oversight.
Danny van Ieperen will manage the CAMO for Zeusch as an in-house specialist. Danny Van Leperen brings to the company 19 years of aircraft maintenance expertise. He started his career as a mechanic for Dutch airline Martinair. He has worked as a ground engineer, technical specialist, and duty maintenance controller with several Dutch aviation companies since.
"We have the AOC in our sights and are focused on developing the necessary personnel, assets and safety management systems to reach this goal. Bringing Danny on board adds real value to the business, and these latest developments highlight that we're working diligently towards our goal," adds van Kranenburg.
Our current fleet is 4 Beechcraft King Air aircraft:
King Air B200 -> PH- ZAZ (mapping & medevac)
King Air B200 -> PH-ZCZ (mapping)
King Air C90A -> PH-ZBZ (relay)
