Created in 1976 by Alain Regourd, Regourd Aviation quickly asserted itself as a major actor in the air sector in Europe and in Africa, combining security, high expectations and punctuality.
The group started with an aircraft purchase-sale activity, before widening its range to air operations and creating multiple dedicated subsidiaries. In 2019, the group decided to create Amelia to unite the group under the same banner.
Amelia (Regourd Aviation group) is an integrated and international aeronautics company. Business travelling is in our DNA :
An Integrated Group
We are a fully integrated aeronautics group, taking responsibility for the tracking and maintenance of our planes, the training of our pilots, commercialising and operating our flights, from our bases in Europe and Africa.
The African Imprint
EquaFlight and equaJet, our subsidiaries located in the Congo, are key actors of the air sector in the country.
EquaFlight, launched in 1996, operates scheduled flights — first between Pointe-Noire and Brazzaville and now also between Pointe-Noire and Port-Gentil, Gabon — with round trip flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The company also manages a separate flight activity dedicated to companies and governments in the area.
EquaJet, created in 2008, offers an activity focused on private on-demand flights. The demand for such services is booming, specifically because of the mining and forestry sectors present in this part of Africa.
The European Expansion
In 2012, the group bought Aero4M, a Slovenian company specialized in in-base and on-line maintenance for helicopters. Since then, Aero4M has greatly developed, becoming an IOSA-registered (an international Safety Audit by IATA) airline (AOC EASA) and a CAMO center.
In 2015 the group created Amelia Tech (ex-Airmain), its own maintenance subsidiary. Based in Saint-Brieuc, Amelia Tech is exclusively dedicated for the group’s planes, allowing Amelia to do a careful upkeep of its fleet and maintain the highest EASA PART 145 standards in maintenance, quality and European safety. Today, Amelia Tech is a constantly-growing subsidiary that follows the evolution of the group and the fleet thanks to mechanics who are trained for specific operations on each plane.
In 2019, in order to ensure the best quality training, the group decided to open its own flight school to certify and maintain the skill level of the group’s pilots.
Amelia Tech (ex-Airmain): taking care of maintenance to guarantee safety and reactivity
Last born, Amelia Tech (ex-Airmain) manages the Amelia’s fleet (Regourd Aviation Group) from the Trémuson airport in Brittany.
