In 1994 pilot and passionate entrepreneur Bernard Van Milders founded ‘Flying Partners’ to manage the shared ownership of his first aircraft. The following year he offered charter flights launching ‘Flying Service’. In 1997, the company was certified and recognised to handle operations and maintenance. To consolidate growth, all activities were aligned under ‘FLYINGGROUP’ in 2001, also the year the first long-range jet was added to the fleet.
Expansion opportunities brought FLYINGGROUP to France in 2004 and to The Netherlands and Luxembourg in 2009. Thanks to its unwavering dedication to quality and safety, FLYINGGROUP was entrusted with a Cessna Citation Centre authorisation and became a certified operator in Luxembourg too. In 2011, a brand-new hangar of 5100m2 was constructed in Antwerp. Investments increase: in 2013 the first VIP airliner was commissioned and in 2014 the new office and hangar at Brussels Airport opened for business. 2015 and 2016 saw the takeover of Jet Management Europe and the incorporation of Hyperion Aviation Malta. Dubai hosted the first office outside of Europe in 2017.
The ISO 9001 certification in 2018 is another milestone in the aviation company’s rise to fame. FLYINGGROUP also established a division in Geneva, followed by Paris in 2019. Additionally, the office, hangar and FAA repair station in Kortrijk were opened. In 2020, FLYINGGROUP proudly inaugurated its fully renovated headquarters in Antwerp, the most recent jewel in the crown.
