2017-11-16: Request for ground handling from Handling Companies
Dear members,

Please read carefully and contact us for any further information or clarification.

Request for ground handling from Handling Companies


Due to the fact that the Ground Handling companies invoice sometimes the Aeroclub, even though they are paid by a pilot-private person and they are not order to invoice the Aeroclub, tax and accounting problems are incurred. It has been agreed between our Aeroclub and the Ground Handling companies to follow the procedure below:

In addition to contacting by telephone, the pilot who is about to visit an airport, for which handling is requested, will send an email to the Ground Handling company (email address per airport is provided by the handling companies) 24 or 48 hrs before landing to the destination airport, in which email the following information shall be provided by the pilot:
  • Date of Arrival
  • Estimated Time of Arrival
  • Airplane and type
  • Registration
  • Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW)
  • Number of passengers
  • Name and Surname of Pilot-In-Commant (can be followed by the pilot's AOPA ID and/or Aeroclub Mesogeion Member ID)
  • Date of Departure
  • Estimated Time of Departure

Note: If for specific reasons (and after consultation and approval from the Aeroclub's administration) the cost of the handling is to be paid by the Aeroclub (ex. Ferry flight, test flight, etc) and not by the pilot, the pilot shall explicitly state this to the email that will be sent to the Ground Handling company and an Invoice to the Aeroclub must also be requested. In this case, during the payment of the handling costs at the airport, the pilot is advised to remind to the handler that an Invoice to the Aeroclub must be issued and the proof of payment is received, which is later submitted to the Aeroclub's airport base (Tatoi) so that the respective amount is returned to the pilot.

Contrarily, in case that the handling cost is to be borne by the pilot, then the pilot pays the handling cost to the handling company and receives by default a simple payment receipt (not invoice). By no means should an Invoice be issued to the Aeroclub when the pilot is to bear the handling c.

For your convenience, please see an email template to use when contacting a Ground Handling company (the information to fill each time are marked with bold):

2017-11-16: Payment methods of flights, discount programs and services
Dear members,

Please read carefully and contact us for any further information or clarification.

Payment methods of flights, discount programs and services


  1. The acceptable payment methods are:
    a) Cash
    b) Credit/Debit Card (VISA, American Express, MasterCard)
    c) Bank Transfer to one of the following Bank Accounts:

    • ALPHA BANK IBAN: GR4001402160216002002002019 BENEFICIARY: AEROCLUB MESOGEION
    • PIRAEUS BANK IBAN: GR2901710070006007127442874 BENEFICIARY: AEROCLUB MESOGEION

  2. Payments received via bank transfers, e-banking, or any other banking applications (e.g. Viva Wallet), need be made directly by the member (or the candidate member), whose full name will be clearly indicated on the transaction receipt, otherwise the transaction will not be accepted. In case of a new member or student pilot application, transaction receipts need be attached to the membership application form or be sent to our email address info@mesogeion-aeroclub.gr

  3. Related banking costs are borne by the applicant (please, choose OUR when making a bank transfer). In case the depositor has not chosen to bear the transaction costs and the final amount received by the Aeroclub is less than the amount expected for the service being purchased, the related service will not be activated until the total payment of the due balance.

    Example:
    Bank transfer of 650€ to purchase a "Discount Program of 5hrs Prepayed with no time restriction" but OUR was not selected by the depositor. The Aeroclub receives 647€ from the Bank. The service will not be activated until the depositor pays the 3€ due.

  4. In case of out-of-base refueling, the cost of flight is modified according to the difference of fuel cost per liter.

    Examples:
    a) Suppose the current MOGAS price in Tatoi is 1,66€ per liter and the pilot is refueling in Megara Airport with 30ltr of AVGAS at 2,82€ per liter. The pilot is paying to the fuel supplier 30 X 2,82€ = 84,60€. The Aeroclub returns to the pilot 30 X 1,66€ = 49,80€. In essence, the cost of the flight is increased by 84,60€ - 49,80€ = 34,80€.

    b) Suppose the current MOGAS price in Tatoi is 1,66€ per liter and the pilot is refueling in Skopje with 100lt AVGAS at 1,25€ per liter. The pilot is paying to the fuel supplier 100 X 1,25€ = 125€. The Aeroclub returns to the pilot 100 X 1,66€ = 166€. In essence, the cost of the flight is decreased by 166€ - 125€ = 41€

    Note: The pilot should tell the fuel supplier to issue an Invoice with the customer data of the Aeroclub and the pilot should receive a proof of payment. Upon arriving at our airport base (Tatoi), the pilot must submit the proof of payment to the Aeroclub in order to calculate the fuel difference and be given the respective amount.

The Administration Board


2017-10-27: Safety Letter - Personal Electronic Devices (PEDs) use on board aircraft
Technological progress is constantly influencing facets of our society and especially our industry, which is a technological intensive one. General aviation is also subjected to such changes and therefore we have to look into any challenges associated with such changes. For us, this is certainly an exciting process since it offers a range of new possibilities and simultaneous access to a range of products, making our life - and our flights - a lot easier. But every change is capable of introducing a number of new risks to our environment, or can potentially release a number of latent risks already present.

This short publication aims at presenting safety material relevant to the use of such devices with a commentary which we consider to be an amalgamation of best practices. With respect to our own safety management system, we are making an effort to analyse and understand potential risks associated with the use of such devices.
