FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Basta Holdings Corp. (OTCBB:BSTA), an aviation and logistics management company, today announced that it has assumed management of revenue-generating contracts in the field of heavy helicopter long-term leasing as well as private business aviation operations.
The Company now manages revenue-generating, long-term ACMI leases of heavy rotary wing aircraft commissioned by significant government, non-government organizations (NGO), UN and commercial contractors internationally. Additionally, the Company has been hired to provide services in the field of private business aviation operations. As part of the engagement, Basta Holdings anticipates entering into long term aircraft leases, which will be used in FBO operations as well as acquiring other assets which may increase the efficiency of its FBO services.
Management of Basta Holdings is in negotiations with several major aviation companies in China and elsewhere in Asia as well as Africa. The Company plans to expand its long-term heavy helicopter leasing business and establish joint ventures in the acquisition and development of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities and private business aircraft sales, management, charter and maintenance.
President of Basta Holdings Corp., Jacob Gitman, Ph,D., commented, "We are very confident that our experience and reputation, earned over years of operating various successful companies in the aviation industry, will ensure a prompt start and the successful development of Basta Holdings' commercial operations."
"In fact, since the new Board of Directors has taken over the company's operations, we've already begun generating revenue and anticipate significant growth in both our existing lines of business. Basta Holdings expects to quickly develop partnerships with new customers and joint ventures due to management's skill set, assets and corporate know how when operating in the most difficult and unforgiving aviation markets of the world such as Afghanistan and Africa," added Dr. Gitman.
"In particular, we look forward to working with several large potential partners in China, where one of our board members, Mrs. Shufen Xue, has connected our company with a major aviation industry player. Our Chinese expansion plans include addressing the enormous demand of that market for helicopter services, MRO facilities and private aviation where the Chinese government has approved long-term, specific goal-oriented programs funded with multi-billion dollar government development allotments," concluded Dr. Gitman.
