On behalf of Metrojet, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to AsBAA for organising the Icons of Aviation Awards & Charity Gala Dinner on 10th November, 2017. The event provided the business aviation community in the Asia Pac region the opportunity to gather and celebrate a memorable year. I would like to extend my appreciation to the organising committee for all of their hard work in putting on such a wonderful event. The Metrojet team thoroughly enjoyed the Gala Dinner and we have already committed to being one of the major sponsors for next year’s event. We look forward to another great event next year. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas & a joyful 2018 and may the upcoming year be full of good health, much happiness and a bunch of prosperity!
I was pleasantly surprised and in awe at the wonderful job the AsBAA team has accomplished in such a short space of time, it was a wonderful evening of acknowledging all that is great about our industry. The IOA Awards is quickly becoming the must attend social event of the year in Asia, very good networking opportunities, everyone was represented and all for a great charity cause in Orbis.
A special thanks to the AsBAA team for this special honour, and also for staging the popular industry event — the Icons of Aviation. Events and activities such as these raise the profile of business aviation across Asia and also to underline the importance and value of General Aviation with civil aviation agencies, government agencies, media and other key stakeholders.
The AsBAA Icons of Aviation Awards are one of the most important events in the business aviation industry. They recognise the success of industry leaders and provide a great platform for companies to increase brand awareness, expand their business networks, and explore B2B opportunities. But what makes them even more meaningful is their part in AsBAA’s CSR program supporting the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital. VistaJet is proud to be part of such a good cause.

Orbis is honored to partner with AsBAA in two consecutive years. We were overwhelmed with the generosity of the guests at the AsBAA Charity Gala Dinner. With your kindhearted support, blind people can finally escape from the dark and experience the warmth from seeing again. We look forward to a fruitful relationship with AsBAA to transforming lives of the underprivileged.”

It’s an honour to be invited and spoke at the Icons of Aviation charity gala dinner this year. What better way to meet and greet our supporters from the aviation industry than in such an entertaining and enjoyable evening. The Star War theme was a blast. Thanks for the generosity of all the guests who donated to Orbis and thanks AsBAA for organising such a wonderful event.

Our first Industry Awards Gala in 2015 was a great success all round, it was a sell-out event in which we celebrated the stars of the industry, and also gave back to the community in which we all operate. The 2016 Icons of Aviation was better than we could have ever hoped for – with over USD50k raised for Orbis and 300+ guests from our industry gathered in collaborative spirit. Thank you to all that sponsored, attended, and an supported the IoA, see you in 2017!
