nov 27, 2019 | Nieuws

MAG Aerospace is pleased to announce its teaming partnership with Schiphol based NL EASP AIR in pursuit of the Netherlands Coastguard Air Reconnaissance Capacity Tender.  The Netherlands Coastguard Tender replaces aging Dornier 228 aircraft with modern, multi-mission, Maritime Patrol Aircraft capable of providing long-endurance and long-term support. 

“It’s a privilege to be able to team with NL EASP AIR on this effort,” said Matt Bartlett, MAG Chief Growth Officer. “Their existing experience in flying coast guard missions combined with our experience delivering surveillance solutions worldwide and in managing all aspects of aviation operations around the world, made for a natural team. We are excited about the ability to establish MAG Netherlands and to provide the Netherlands with a technically strong, uniquely capable airborne solution that meets and exceeds the requirements of the Coastguard.  Our focus is on making this a successful Dutch operation and consequently we’ve focused on partnerships that take advantage of that expertise and mission knowledge.” 

“This teaming provides a great solution for the Netherlands,” said Pieter Voeten, Director of Operations of NL EASP

AIR, “We take our Schiphol based operation and our experience in and working with the EU FRONTEX Border and Coastguard Agency operations. As a Dutch company we are literally used to working with Maritime Surveillance experts from all over the world. This partnership allows our team to produce a Dutch mission focused organization and to provide an EASA certified, exclusively technical solution that provides a better, quicker, and much more capable response to any incident.”
