AIR CHARTER OPERATOR
An air charter operator is authorised to operate air charter flights, due to having been granted an Air Operator Certificate (AOC). This is the party in charge of the maintenance, licensing, safety and operations of private aircraft, be it a single business jet or a fleet. The operator is not necessarily the owner of the private aircraft that is available for charter.
AIR OPERATOR'S CERTIFICATE (AOC)
An Air Operator's Certificate is the official authorisation of an aircraft operator by a national aviation authority (NAA) to permit it to use aircraft for commercial purposes. Requirements vary depending on country but generally include aircraft airworthiness, adequate personnel and operating systems and proof of sufficient finances, amongst others things. LunaJet's only uses the most reliable operators with the highest level of certification for its clients.
AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL (ATC)
Air traffic control is a service which manages the flow of air traffic through specially trained ground-based air traffic controllers. Each country generally provides this service to all private, military and commercial aircraft operating within its airspace and the primary role of ATC is to ensure the safe and fluid circulation of aircraft.
The commonly called 'ATC Slot' message is provided by Air Traffic Control in order to delay an aircraft departure time, when necessary for regulation reasons. The CTOC (Calculated Takeoff Time) will be the new identified, planned time. Understandably, passengers do not like ATC slot restrictions, as they often cause delay. However, they are provided for the safety of air traffic and can sometimes improve over time as Air Traffic Control will always try to accommodate traffic as much as possible.
The term 'avionics' refers to the electronic systems with which aircraft are equipped. These serve a variety of purposes, ranging from communications and monitoring to collision-avoidance and navigation.
