ATLANTA, GA â€“ Associated Aircraft Group (AAG), a subsidiary of Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation, and Gama Aviation, Inc. a global leader in business aviation management, today announced that they have entered into a Cross-Referral and Joint Marketing Program Agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, the parties have agreed to provide joint referrals to the clients of both companies, providing customers with access to both corporate aircraft and helicopter solutions. The announcement was made today at the 62nd annual National Business Aviation Association convention in Atlanta.
â€œGama Aviation is pleased to be aligned with AAG to provide our clients a seamless solution that gives them the ability to step right off of their corporate aircraft at our Teterboro Facility and step right into an AAG S-76Â® helicopter and have convenient access to their final destination,â€ said Scott Ashton, Gama Aviationâ€™s Chief Commercial Officer. â€œAAG shares Gama Aviationâ€™s exceptionally high standards for safety and client service and this new relationship is a perfect fit for both companies and for our clients.â€
Gama Aviation is based in Stratford, CT, and has operations in Teterboro and West Palm Beach, Fla., and manages over 40 large and mid-cabin business aircraft at locations across North and South America, including Charlotte, Atlanta, St. Louis, Miami and Santiago, Chile and Guatemala.
â€œAssociated Aircraft Group is delighted to announce this new program with Gama Aviation. Integrating a short helicopter flight from a downtown New York helipad to a clientâ€™s waiting corporate aircraft at Gamaâ€™s Teterboro hangar provides the ultimate in door-to-door convenience and time savings,â€ according to Carolyn Marino, AAGâ€™s Director of Sales and Marketing. â€œWe anticipate that the cross-referral program will provide our clients with confidence that they will receive the same outstanding service on the Gama fleet of aircraft that theyâ€™ve come to expect from AAG. Both companies share the values of superior quality, safety, and recognized leadership in private aviation.â€
