News and Updates – Launching a More Agile and Efficient FAA Flight Services Service

| FAA News | August 22, 2017

August 22 The Federal Aviation Administrations Flight Standards Service (AFS) plays a vital role in making the U.S. aviation system the worlds safest. But even the best can get better.

On August 20, AFS made organizational adjustments that will enable it to operate with greater accountability, better use of resources, and more readiness to adapt to change. The FAA expects the Flight Standards restructuring to yield benefits to both the agency and the U.S. aviation community. It will strengthen the organizations ability to keep pace with changes in the aviation industry, increase the Services ability to derive maximum benefit from the fixed resources allocated to the agency, and make sure AFS employees develop and interpret regulations and policy consistently across the organization.

To enhance the AFS safety culture, interdependence, critical thinking, and consistency will now embedded in every AFS employee’s work requirements. And to facilitate a more agile, efficient, and consistent organization, the service is reorganizing from today’s structure, see current org chart, to one based on function, see new org chart.

The FAA issued an Information for Operators bulletin (InFO) on July 26 to provide industry with information to help prepare for the AFS reorganization. The agency has also established a web page to give the aerospace community more detail on the AFS changes.

You’ve heard this old bromide many times. We all have. There’s probably a bumper sticker with it printed between images of a map of the world and a cuddly puppy. There are certainly similarly worded inspirational posters slapped up in classrooms and office spaces all over the country. But have you really thought about it? […]

K.C. Firm Takes Majority Interest in Executive AirShare

| Aviation News | August 22, 2017

Kansas City-based investment firm Curran Companies has taken a controlling interest in Executive AirShare through an investment that company executives said will enable the regional fractional ownership provider to grow into new markets. Executive AirShare founder Bob Taylor and investor Dave Murfin maintain “significant ownership” in the enterprise but Curran will control the business, reformed under a new LLC. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.

“Executive AirShare’s business is poised for substantial growth, especially to new cities near our existing geographical footprint,” said Curran president Wiley Curran. “We see significant opportunities to leverage technology on top of the current business model to produce an even better service for our customer base. We want to be the middle market’s flight department.”

Curran Companies, a father-and-son venture, became Phenom 300 shareowners through Executive AirShare in 2013. They complete their investment as Executive AirShare takes delivery of its 10th Phenom 300 and a Beechcraft King Air 350i.

“The Curran group brings enthusiasm, business experience and capital to support the company’s expansion into new markets,” said Taylor. “I have truly enjoyed the last 15-plus years and look forward to future participation.”
