Gravitas Aviation Limited is a privately held company whose management has specific expertise in the fields of DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft and seaplane airline development and operations. The company acquires aircraft for its own operations and lease fleet needs in addition to providing clients with aircraft procurement, upgrade, lease and financing service. Gravitas also provides comprehensive business development services for parties wishing to develop seaplane operations in both new and existing markets.
Gravitas Aviation is not an aircraft broker. Gravitas works with aircraft brokers globally and uses its own capital to acquire aircraft, transport them back to select approved maintenance facilities for overhaul and preparation for deployment by subsequent Purchaser or Lessee operators.
Steve was co-founder and former CEO of AirSea Lines International (Canada) Limited. ASL was successful in developing the first scheduled service seaplane operation in the EU. As no scheduled seaplane operations existed, this process involved the entire development of the regulatory framework, the design and operation of the physical infrastructure including aquatic aerodromes and the recruitment and training of the required human resources. It also involved the branding and marketing of the entirely new concept to the flying public, the sourcing and acquisition of specialized aircraft and funding of the enterprise with over €25,000,000 in private equity from individual and institutional investors.
As founder and President of Gravitas Aviation Limited Steve continues the acquisition, lease and finance of DHC-6 Twin Otter aircraft and, through Gravitas Aviation advisory services, the development of seaplane aviation operations on behalf of client/partners worldwide.
