Air Partner helps eagles soar

June 27 - They were neither high, wide, nor heavy, but a recent project shipment by Air Partner, saw the air charter broker work with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Scotland to fly a very different kind of important cargo; live sea e

Air Partner Freight flew six live white-tailed sea eagle chicks from Alesund in Norway to Edinburgh, Scotland as part of a major translocation project.

Now in its sixth year, the East Scotland Sea Eagle Project is a partnership between RSPB ScotlandScottish Natural Heritage and Forestry Commission Scotland, and aims to reintroduce the species back to the east coast of Scotland following successful reintroductions to the west coast in the 1970s and 1990s. The 2012 year reintroduction was financed by Heritage Lottery.

Air Partner account manager Lindon Cooper said, "Aviation logistics are never easy, and when you've got live cargo to transport, it is particularly important to ensure that everything goes smoothly. We adapted the aircraft to ensure that the cabin was kept as dark as possible, and that noise was kept to a minimum. The cabin temperature also had to be controlled at 14 degrees Celsius to maintain optimum conditions."

Bruce Anderson, RSPB Scotland, said: "Attention to detail and the timely operation of these flights are key to the project's success; the service we received from Air Partner helped to us to achieve this."
