Signum Aviation specialise in delivering a multi-functional portfolio of aviation services to our customers throughout the globe from our offices in Europe and North America.
the future of aviation
Using industry leading flight planning software packages, we provide accurate, clear and concise flight planning data for any aircraft type. The intricacy of our systems allows for tailored and precise data accuracy when it comes to providing fuel burns, incorporating the flying characteristics unique to your individual aircraft. By evaluating enroute weather, performance, weight and balance constraints and permitted airspace, we provide the most optimum routing for your flight.
Ground Handling Arrangements
We believe it is imperative to give detailed attention to ground handling as well as inflight arrangements. Taking into account constant feedback from our clients, we have spent many years refining our list of approved handling agents so that your passengers can receive the best service upon arrival and departure from any airport.
Occasionally some airfields require special liaison with either local authorities or military bodies. Over many years, Signum has acquired channels of communication to enable the granting of airport slots, special arrivals, PPRs and parking permissions.
Should your crew or passengers require any form of transportation or hotel when they arrive at their destination, we have a list of safe and approved vendors, where we can meet the exact client requirements for both transportation and accommodation.
When offering passengers the highest level of comfort on your fleet, catering to their taste is of paramount importance. When you are down-route and require an extra special requested item for your clients, we will endeavour to source the highest standard of all types of cuisine through our network of tried and tested catering providers.
Permits are required to enable landing and overflight of certain territories. We have spent many years refining our contacts to enable us to easily and rapidly obtain these vital approvals. We offer clear fixed pricing for all permit requirements via our operations team.
When travelling to certain countries, prior arrangements must be made directly with government authorities to allow smooth and expeditious transit of passengers through customs and immigration formalities. We can handle all aspects of these complex processes to ensure the minimum disruption to your passengers and crew upon arrival. When visiting large amounts of overseas territories, it is necessary for crew members and passengers alike to obtain entry visas. Signum Aviation can pre-arrange visas for all your party either prior to departure or upon arrival.
Weather and Performance
A vital part of any pre-flight check is correct weather briefings. We provide a fully personalised suite of weather information including the following data: PIREPS, SIGMETS, Passenger Weather Brief, AIREPS, Surface Weather Analysis, Flight Level Winds (Graphical and Text), TAFs, METARs and NOTAMs. With safety a primary consideration of any flight preparation, Signum offers a complete airfield performance and runway analysis solution for all trips. These calculations, using state of the art software, consider and compute performance factors for all airfields making sure that no safety matter is left to chance.
Cost focused purchasing of fuel can save aircraft operators a vast amount of expenditure. By developing fuelling policies and selecting the most cost-effective fuel providers, Signum Aviation help save significant cost on listed airport fuel prices. In conjunction with our fuel provision partners we are constantly working to bring you the best fuel prices at worldwide locations.
An important part of any flight support service is to be able to keep our client’s team informed of where their aircraft is. We provide flight watch services that include reporting departure, estimated arrival and actual arrival times to specific contacts using constant updates from our live radar feed. We understand that sometimes circumstances out of everybody’s control can arise during air travel, and recognise the importance of offering an in-depth flight watch service to our clients so that they can plan and prepare effectively. The experience of the team ensures we will always be there to support you, whatever the situation.
Security is always a major consideration when travelling to territories with known issues. We are able to provide a full security brief for any country prior to departure and advise on the best methods of keeping your passengers, crew and aircraft safe during your time in any country.
Third Party Aircraft Charter
Private Jet Charter is not just a luxury, it is also an essential business tool offering extra hours in your day and saving cost.
The flexibility of private jet travel is unparalleled with the ability to fly directly to smaller, more conveniently located airfields, allowing you and your passengers to spend time more productively. With check-in times allowing you to report to the private jet terminal as little as fifteen minutes prior to departure, the time savings are huge. Private jet travel is also an excellent way to extend and further enjoy your valuable leisure time- allowing key flexibility and the ability to spend more of your time where it matters most, with your family and friends.
With over a century of combined aviation staff experience and with an extensive network of over 5000 approved charter aircraft, we can provide the best aircraft solution for all your charter requirements no matter how complicated and wherever in the world you need it.

Award Winning International Trip Planning
Jonathan and his team have exceeded our expectations in every way possible. As we expand our operation we have every confidence that Signum will remain the best choice of Flight Support provider.
Al Hudson – Chief Pilot. KJet
Just wrapped up our sixth international trip using SIGNUM. What a great team. In each instance the SIGNUM team has been professional, precise, and courteous. Most importantly communication has been perfect.
Reliable, efficient, cost effective, honest, and above all never any mistakes. All qualities you want your trip planning company to have and all accurately describe Signum and Jonathan's team
Signum are an integral part of our mission to deliver an exceptional experience to our clients and passengers, we couldn’t imagine traversing this complex process without them
Signum has been an invaluable support in the growth of our business. A trusted partner, during a period of rapid expansion, working alongside our own operations team. With it, an unrivalled professional approach to international operations. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for any of the Signum team, and I have nothing but confidence in the job I entrust them to do – ensuring we maintained our high safety standards, being commercially aware, incorporating them within our Management System, being part of our team, and ultimately - helping us maintain our exceptional reputation. Jonathan should be very proud with what him and his team have built
Signum Aviation are an incredibly reliable organisation when it comes to flight planning services and managing every aspect of a trip. I’ve never called them and not had the phone answered within seconds, night or day. In addition to the day to day aspects of trip planning, I have found Signum to be proactive in solving potential problems, long before flight crews even know that there ever was an issue. They really have your back, regardless of where you are in the world. If anyone is seeking a company to handle their flight planning and trip support... Signum has my recommendation without a single reservation.
The flight planning services provided by Signum were terrific! As a small flight department, I was reluctant to try a new flight planning service but I am glad I did! Kyle and the staff at Signum could not have been more helpful or professional. From the initial contact, regular check-ins and follow up, I was very impressed by the service, professionalism and thoroughness. If you are in need of flight planning, overflight permit and/or handling services contact Signum- you will not be disappointed!
Ford Peterson - Chief Pilot, Bernatello's Foods
A career in the airlines preceded by many, many years of single pilot ops cannot prepare one for the potential bureaucratic nightmare that is exit and entry to and from the USA to Mexico. Cancun and Tulum in particular are truly beautiful places and we would not have made it without the support from your flight ops team. After numerous last-minute changes to our itinerary including travel dates and ports of entry, all paperwork arrived at the right time and place and was complete in every detail. Transit through the FBO in Cancun was seamless (which is more than can be said for the times I operated commercially through there). Re-entry to the USA was equally trouble free with US Customs and Border Patrol officers in possession of all the paperwork to actually help us!! I had previously wondered what the experience of flying independently, without a Company flight operations department to back me up, would be like. Answer, it’s a breeze with you guys there 24/7, at the end of the phone or by email. And all of this amid the COVID complication. Please keep up the good work.
Andy Ridings - Owner/Pilot
From my side, I have to say what a great team you have. The response to queries & problems has been some of the best I’ve had in 25 years of commercial aviation. Particularly a couple of days ago in Paros. They were on it in every respect.
Chris Le Moignan
Jonathan and the entire Signum team provide not only top of the line customer service, but continued professionalism and dedication, even after the trip is complete. They allow our team to focus on pertinent flight items while handling the back-end arrangements to ensure our passengers have a smooth transition to their destination and return home. I would want no other company assisting us in worldwide operations
Josh - G550 Captain
We used Signum Aviation for a crossing from Germany to the USA. Their staff were on the ball every step of the way and the response time was second to none. Any questions we had, they got right back to us instantly, 24h service every day. And a friendly and professional team to work with. Thanks for your help.
