About Us

 To explain who and what G.A.S.E. is can be simplified to one small statement…

‘We are a group of enthusiasts who wanted to foster General Aviation in Egypt by offering assistance and services to visiting/transiting pilots of light aircraft’.

This may be an over-simplification of what we were but it does lie at the core of our organisation.

Little did we know back in 2010 how big we would become by keeping to our original ideals of caring about the pilot and his aircraft above all else.

 G.A.S.E. came into being following the successful handling, hosting and support for Norman Surplus, the Autogyro circumnavigator, when he passed through Egypt on his amazing adventure. A few friends got together and were able to help Norman cope with the bureaucracy and special needs that flying in Egypt can throw at you. He was very gratefull for the help received from us and praised us to fellow pilots. One of these pilots, Peter Kelsey from FerryAir then contacted us and suggested that we create a ‘company’ to offer similar services to other pilots heading this way.

This seemed like a great idea and two of us set about creating G.A.S.E., with the sole objective of being able to offer the best services and assistance that we could.

The main difference between us and other agencies in Egypt and around the world is that we are volunteers and do this for the love of aviation and the hope that we can coax more pilots to come to fly that extra mile.

 Although created and run by two people, G.A.S.E. is a much bigger organisation than that statement suggests. We have a considerable collection of contacts from the world of aviation throughout Egypt and the rest of the globe, as well as many enthusiastic volunteers who all give their time and expertise free of charge. We also use valued 3rd party agenices where necessary, who will offer their services at a much reduced rate to our clients.

 Our army of contacts/experts/enthusiasts consists of commercial pilots, air traffic controllers, flight dispatchers, ground handlers, doctors, airline caterers, drivers, photographers, media people and most importantly…enthusiasts, all more than willing to help us help you, the GA pilot, make the most of your flying in.

The two co-founders and powerhouses behind the running of G.A.S.E. are…

 

Eddie Gould

 Eddie is a British ex-pat living in spitting distance of Cairo International Airport. He has had a lifelong love of aviation and started working with aircraft after leaving school in 1970. His first job saw him maintaining a fleet of PA-28’s at Keenair Services/Liverpool Flying School. A number of other aviation related posts came along through the years and he also had time to fit in a bit of glider and microlight flying.

Always a keen aviation photographer, this hobby would find him at airfields around Europe following his love of aircraft whenever he got the chance.

A member of the P.F.A. for many years would see him at fly-ins and rally’s chewing the fat with pilots and enthusiasts from around the world.

Moving to precision engineering at the start of the millennium also saw health problems finally dictate a move to warmer climes. His love of aviation has never waned and is stronger than ever.

A powerhouse in the Egyptian aviation community, his love of aircraft is obvious to anyone who knows him.

Of course, there are many more people who make up G.A.S.E. and we will add names as they are requested. This list also includes a number of contacts in other areas of the world who have offered their services to us. Some of these have links to their websites on the links page.
