Dili, 19 July 2023 (TATOLI) – Executive Director of Fly Timor Company, Pedro Carrascalão revealed that his company is interested to use small domestic airplanes, To do so, he is now in what he calls ‘the preparatory phase’ using a device that arrives in Timor-Leste on the 7th of this month.

speaking to Tatoli in Novo Turizmo Hote, Carrascalão informed that the company recently acquired three aircraft, one of which will be used to transport patients and tourists and the other will be used exclusively for training Timorese pilots for employers, professional aviation training is essential, adding that “more experience” leads to “greater knowledge” and, perhaps, in the case of pilots, to pilot larger aircraft.

“A VH-ZZV model aircraft has arrived in Indonesia and is capable of carrying four people. The other two are still in Australia. Regarding training, apart from pilots, we also invest in mechanics to ensure aircraft maintenance,” said Pedro Carrascalão.

He said this effort aims to promote tourism and get great travel deals, for example; if tourists wish to visit tourist attractions sites, they can rent a plane.”

Question about the travel cost, Carrascalão said he would only reveal it after the registration and acquisition processes for compatible licenses were completed, ensuring that, in both cases, “everything is under control”.

The leaders viewed positively the idea of ​​collaboration, between various airlines and mediated by the Government, to develop the aviation and tourism sectors in Timor-Leste. “When the Government expresses interest in developing the aviation sector, it is possible to invite related companies to present their programs and plans. So that executive decisions can be made according to the needs of the aviation industry,” he suggested.
