Covid-19 Measures and Service Levels

Information valid as of Tue 24-Mar-2020 for operations in Finland.

Due to the situation with the Corona virus, Aeropole has also had to adapt its service delivery accordingly and is trying to do its best to slow down the propagation of the virus and to mitigate the various consequences it has on the company operations. As of this writing, Aeropole continues both practical flight training as well as theory instruction, and services are provided at almost normal levels, bearing in mind we need to take special measures under these special times.

As a general rule, we are declining visitors during these times, but one-on-one instruction on a confirmed appointment is possible.

Flight Operations and Maintenance

Aircraft Rental

Aircraft rental is still possible almost as usual—only flights abroad are forbidden until further notice. This applies to PIC flights by Diamond Cadets, any skill tests/proficiency checks/assessments of competence, as well as any other aircraft rental. We have lowered the daily reservation minimums for most aircraft and are not charging for even last-minute cancellations if made for health reasons.

Practical Flight Training

Operations continue normally, with regular disinfection of cockpits and shared computers, larger separation of flight planning desks etc. Luckily, in the kind of 1:1 tuition that flight training is, a single instructor instructing only a handful of clients, each one by one, we are not in the highest risk.

Maintenance

Our aircraft maintenance organisation continues to operate as normally as possible, given the circumstances.

Theoretical Instruction

Now it is obviously a good moment to catch up on theoretical studies at home. Theoretical instruction continues as much as possible, given instructor availability.

Ground Schools

Physical attendance is strongly discouraged and instead, now is a great time to try out the virtual attendance option. We will limit the number of physical attendees to 4-6 case by case and depending on classroom size.

However listening-in attendees, i.e. those who have not fulfilled the necessary GS prerequisites to get the attendance mark, are not allowed to participate: neither in classroom (to lower the contamination risk), nor virtually (in order to preserve the bandwidth to those in bigger need).

Registration in advance is required as usual, but we reserve the right to prioritise attendees based on their stage of studies and real needs and hence to refuse attendance in some cases.

Last-minute cancellations due to instructor availability (or more stringent health measures later on) are of course possible and more likely than normally.

Examinations

Final Exam opportunities will be provided on a limited, prioritised, as-needed basis. First-attempt candidates will be prioritised. Please make extra sure during these times that you have a high likelihood of passing the exam on the first attempt!

By default the responsibility of organising the CAA (Traficom) exams rests with the CAA, who have on 17-Mar suspended offering them at Kumpulantie in Helsinki until 14-Apr and informed they would provide extra opportunities on 15-16 April. The convenience option of sitting CAA exams at Aeropole’s premises is more or less suspended and reserved for really high-priority cases only.

This information is valid on the date above written and may change without prior notice, especially if competent authorities mandate compulsory other measures. We hope you can focus on your flight training even in these difficult times, knowing that your health and that of our staff is of paramount importance to us all at Aeropole.

Cessna 152 II’s Available

There just aren’t enough Diamonds around, so we added the venerable C152 to our fleet — or actually, six (6) of them. For the Sunday drivers and others who’d rather just spend time in a thing that flies slow and low, but still do that in a real aeroplane, the two-seater Cessna 152 II  is the cost-effective choice. Initially available for rent in Helsinki (180 €/h) and Jyväskylä (210 €/h) in Finland, and soon also in Roskilde Denmark. Prices are wet, based on airborne time plus a fixed 8-minute taxi surplus (not the whole block time or let alone Hobbs time) in autonomous rental activity, inclusive of all taxes, insurance, etc. We keep them all in a hangar where ever they are based, under a CAMO (Continuous Airworthiness Management Organisation) and don’t do any pilot-owner stuff for maintenance, only Part-M Subpart F or Part-145. They do have decent instrumentation and radios, and are approved for Night VFR, and are generally kept nice and tidy so they may not be your average club planes though. It’s a journey back in time, but still, we want to do that in style.

Price Changes – Roskilde, Denmark

As of 09-Jul-2019, we are happy to offer the DA40NG in Roskilde for rental to qualified pilots at a lowered price of 1992 DKK/h (VAT 0%) based on airtime + a fixed 8-minute taxi time. Furthermore, for initial type checkouts in Roskilde, a reduced rate of 396 DKK (VAT 0%) per instructor’s hour will be applied. VAT is added or not, as applicable. See our Denmark price list.

Aeropole Denmark får en 2017 DA40NG i Roskilde!

Aeropole Denmark ApS har netop fået sin nyeste Diamond, den bliver permanent baseret i Roskilde, hvor Aeropole Denmark har styrket sin tilstedeværelse med investeringer i hangar og kontorområder af højeste kvalitet.

Denne DA40NG, OH-WOW fra 2017, kan lejes af kvalificerede piloter efter endt checkout, og så er den i øvrigt vores primære maskine til alt Single Engine IR træning i Roskilde. OH-WOW har Garmin G1000 glass cockpit, Garmin GFC700 autopilot, WAAS, Avidyne Traffic Advisory System, WX-500 Stormscope, og Jeppesen Flitecharts for at nævne nogle af goderne. Den cruiser 140 knob ved FL100 takket være dens økonomiske 168 hk Austro Engine, hvilket giver DA40NG over 7 timers endurance og mere nyttelast end de ældre TDI-varianter.

Til alle interesserede IFR piloter, har den praktisk talt alle PBN-godkendelser i dens kategori (B-RNAV, P-RNAV, LNAV/VNAV, LPV, osv.).

En DA40NG som denne kan blive din om et års tid hvis du bestiller en nu (pris ca. 480.000 €). Kontakt os allerede nu! Aeropole Denmark er officielle Diamond forhandlere i Danmark. For er du interesseret i at leje vores maskine, så er den tilgængelig for 2280 DKK/t (pris uden moms). Vilkår og betingelser er gældende. Prisændringer kan forekomme.

Aeropole Danmark får en mere Diamond!

Igen en ny fugl i en af vores reder – denne gang er det især Aeropole Danmark og Aalborg (EKYT), der også kan tilbyde den velkendte DA40-TDI / G1000 til udlejning samt et alsidigt VFR- og IFR-skoleprogram. Afhentning af OH-KAN er planlagt til midten af februar på Diamond fabrikken i Wiener Neustadt. Selv om flyet oprindeligt stammer fra 2008, er det i lige så god stand efter en meget grundig renovering på Diamond fabrikken, der kulminerer i frisk maling og leveret i Aeropole-farver. Motoren er en meget nylig Technify (a.k.a Thielert eller Centurion) 2,0 liter med kun 100 timer på den, propel er som ny, og flyet har også KAP140 autopilot. Det er unødvendigt at sige, at vi nu er meget glade for at få vores hangar fuld af Diamonds,nu er der noget for enhver smag (DA20-C1, DA40-TDI, DA40NG, plus den besøgende DA42-VI som er der efter behov).
