Base: Antwerp
Fleet: 1x Casa 212 (OO-FKY)
History: Hawa-Air (Helicopter Aircraft World Association) was initially established in Switzerland during 1959 by Dr. Ahura Khaleghi Yazdi to collect worldwide aviation information and to keep that information updated for the global use of airman. Later this initiative was transferred to World Aviation magazine while Hawa Air was reinvented as a pure aviation company composed of a flying school, air taxi, charter services and maintenance. Besides operating some small aircraft (like Cessna or Piper), a Casa "Aviocar" was delivered at Antwerp on May 20 1986, initially to start up services on behalf of Antwerp Air to run services for the Belgian Post Office but this project failed and a couple of months later the airframe was returned to the lessor. Eventually, it found new life with European Air Transport.
