Still hot air at present,it seems but space tourism looks to take off Saudi Arabian sovereign fund to invest in space tourism By Hilary Lamb Published Friday, October 27, 2017 The Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia is to back Virgin Group's space tourism venture with a $1 billion investment in Virgin Galactic and other Virgin space projects. Recent major investments made by the fund have supported technology companies including ride-sharing service Uber, innovative robotics manufacturer SoftBank and defence technologies giant Lockheed Martin. Saudi Arabia’s rich oil supply has made the kingdom wealthy, although there are serious concerns that its oil-dependent economy will suffer as reserves run dry in coming decades. In response to this, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is widely viewed as a modernising influence in the country, has established Vision 2030, a plan to diversify the Saudi economy. “The future of Saudi Arabia is one of innovation,” said bin Salman. “It’s through partnerships with organisations like Virgin Group that we will make active contributions to those sectors and technologies that are driving progress on a global scale.” Virgin Galactic is the arm of Virgin Group aimed at developing spacecraft for research and tourism. It owns the Spaceship Group, which designed SpaceShipTwo, a spacecraft intended to carry paying customers. In 2016, Virgin Galactic was granted a licence by the US Federal Aviation Administration to use SpaceShipTwo for commercial flights once safety tests are completed. This would make it the first space company to offer rides to tourists. Also owned by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group is Virgin Orbit, which provides rocket launches for small satellites. Virgin Orbit is currently developing a new launch vehicle, LauncherOne, which is capable of lifting off from the wing of an aeroplane, and carrying satellites into orbit around Earth. The $1bn investment will be shared between Virgin Galactic, The Spaceship Group and Virgin Orbit. There is also the option for a further $480m investment in the future, a statement published by Virgin said. “This investment will enable us to develop the next generation of satellite launches and accelerate our programme for point-to-point supersonic space travel,” Branson commented. “We are now just months away from Virgin Galactic going into space with people on board and Virgin Orbit going into orbit and placing satellites around the Earth." The statement confirming the investment was published as the Future Investment Initiatives conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, drew to a close. An illustration accompanying Brandon’s statement depicted a space-themed entertainment park in Saudi Arabia, although there are no details of such a project. According to Branson, Virgin will remain based in the US, and will not compromise on its values in spite of the generous investment from the ultra-conservative country’s sovereign fund.

Air Partner - 09 Oct 2017Conklin & de Decker, the independent aviation consultancy, has ranked Air Partner JetCard the most flexible membership programme in Europe. Conklin & de Decker evaluated the membership programmes of Air Partner, NetJets Europe and VistaJet before rating Air Partner's the best in the businessA similar study carried out in the US also concluded that 'Air Partner appears to remain the most flexible of the US jet membership programmes'.Information was derived from Conklin & de Decker research, the respective companies' websites and 'mystery shopper' data. The comprehensive study found that the Air Partner JetCard:• Has the lowest base costs (when all costs are taken into account)• Has the most flexible terms• Is the only jet card that is fully refundableThe Air Partner JetCard is a pre-paid card that buys 25 hours or more of flying time in the client's choice of six private jet categories, with guaranteed availability at any time, no peak-day restrictions in Europe, and dedicated account management 24/7. Funds loaded onto the card are fully refundable and it can be used to charter aircraft, ranging from turboprops to global business jets and helicopters, to anywhere in the world.The flexibility and transparency of the Air Partner JetCard have made it a popular choice amongst a range of clients, including HNWIs and corporates. There is no limit to the number of users that can be linked to a corporate JetCard account, which further increases its appeal to businesses.Of the three providers evaluated in the study, Air Partner JetCard is the only programme to offer flight credits that never expire and round-trip discounts (of up to 15%), setting it apart from competitors. It is also the only one to offer fully inclusive hourly rates: aircraft positioning, fuel, landing fees and catering are all included, and there are no monthly management fees or fuel surcharges.In order to enhance its client experience further, Air Partner is driving initiatives such as the successful partnerships with Camper & Nicholsons International, the global leader in all luxury yachting activities, as well as other luxury brands and services. In addition, it has rolled out bespoke Air Partner JetCard catering in 34 airports across the UK and Continental Europe to suit all culinary preferences, and recently launched a £1 million Air Partner JetCard.For all these reasons, Air Partner JetCard renewals were up 24% in the first six months of 2017 compared to the same period last year, and overall utilisation continued to be high.Commenting on the results of the research, Mark Briffa, CEO of Air Partner, said: 'Conklin & de Decker has ranked the Air Partner JetCard programme the best, most flexible and affordable private jet membership programme in the US for four years, and we are delighted to now see the same results in the Europe. We have been operating in the private jet space for over 50 years, and are committed to consistently improving the Air Partner JetCard service in order to deliver the very best VIP experience possible to our clients. We aim to exceed industry and client expectations in everything we do, and I am extremely proud that this has been recognised by the Conklin & de Decker study once again - in both the Europe and US.'David Wyndham, President at Conklin & de Decker, said:'Conklin & de Decker selected 11 characteristics to compare each of the three private jet membership programmes in the study and determined the Air Partner JetCard to be the most flexible. We thoroughly researched each company and are impressed with just how far private jet memberships have come in such a short period of time. The standard in the private aviation space continues to grow and the future remains bright for an industry built on luxury and convenience.'

Could be a combination of some of the fund managers filling their boots after waking up to what a great set of interims we just had, some 'rescue effort' business for the Monarch problems... and how well the auto clients business is progressing from Germany... and very importantly how it's projected to continue to progress, according to the release of the article that speedagh has posted today. Seems the auto industry is a major player in the airplane charter business... AND growing at a fantastic rate! My overall impression is AIR are having to be super organised and move at supersonic speed in order to meet the needs and provide the service to the volumes of business clients that are pouring in... and by all accounts being demanded! Nice to be wanted and can't be bad folks! Thanks speedagh!

Edison considers current value as "undemanding" ! Strong H1 results AIR reported a strong first half with underlying PBT of £4.1m, up 34% y-o-y, on GP up 12% to £18.1m. Net cash up 104% at £10.6m. Management signals that full-year expectations should be met (we suspect they may be exceeded) and the interim dividend has been raised by 6.2% to 1.7p.

Dozey3... couldn't agree more with your sentiments about the divi pay out, I wondered if there would in fact be a 'special dividend' this time around! But on the other hand it's undoubtedly a case of it being first things first IMO. The dividend is now back on track to being well covered, which is important... and the debt is being cleaned out, so I think it's fair to be said that the background is actually looking lots more stable and in a much stronger position to cope with any unexpected downturn. The way this lot are going with such a massively strong upward curve across all divisions even in the prevailing European and global uncertainties... makes me quite excited for the future. It's a pretty good yield in the general scheme of things anyway... my intention is to keep acquiring in dribs and drabs on any share price weakness... and if it keeps on as it is, a larger payout could be on the cards sooner rather than later. I would love to see some reports of how the analysts view them.

Hi Dozey - The company have been flagging a slow down in dividend growth for some time. The following was contained in both today's and last year's Interims... "As previously announced, the Board has determined that to pursue our acquisition strategy as well as invest in the future organic growth of the Group, the Company should continue to pay a progressive dividend while at the same time aiming to build cover to between 1.5 and 2.0 times underlying EPS."

Thanks for that Dontay, it's persuaded me to stick around though I've gradually been migrating to AIM iht-exempt holdings. Been in AIR for years, since large special dividends turned up every couple of years. Today's 6% increase seems a bit miserly to me.

All systems go as expected, particularly like the big increase in the USA client lists. I would like to see how the analysis view the new acquisition... but they are projecting immediate earnings enhancement so all to the good.It may be of some interest (for some) to know (or is a Buffet enthusiast) that Air Partner is currently one of the top ten holdings in the U.K. Buffetology fund. This is a fund that adopts Warren Buffett's investment principles and has almost doubled investors' money since it launched.http://www.castlefield.com/media/1943/cfp-sdl-uk-buffettology-september-2017-final.pdf(Please note figures below and related article refers to the 2011-2016 period)Buffettology has returned 98pc, turning £10,000 into £19,980. By comparison, the average "UK growth" fund has risen by 37pc over the same period, while the FTSE All Share index has gained 30pc.Keith Ashworth-Lord, who manages the portfolio, describes his investment philosophy, names his best-performing shares and explains why he does not fear a "Brexit".The portfolio has just 27 shares.The fund's methodology is "business perspective investing". All I am trying to do is buy ownership interests in the very best companies I can find, irrespective of size or sector, at a price that makes business sense.I have a checklist of attributes that I look for, but the main one is a favourite of Mr Buffett's, the "economic moat" – anything that makes it hard for competitors to encroach on a company's position. I also look for companies with consistent operational performance, high returns on equity and strong free cash generation.When I find an ideal candidate, I will invest only if I believe that I am getting more in economic value than I am being asked to pay. I regard economic value as the future stream of cash flows I can expect to receive. Several of the holdings might be termed "recovery plays", as their share prices have been beaten up for one reason or another.Mr Buffett buys and holds for the long term. Do you do the same?My investment horizon is five to 10 years, so I am very much focused on the long term. In the first month of the fund's existence, April 2011, I bought 16 shares, and 11 are still held. One holding was bought by another company, so I have sold only four of these original holdings. I haven't sold anything since 2015.
