Construction underway at Red Deer Regional Airport Terminal

Published

Construction has begun at the Red Deer Regional Airport to convert the existing terminal into a full-service FBO (Fixed Based Operator), in partnership with Tucana Aviation.

The term FBO is given to an organization granted the right by an airport to provide a variety of ground support services, such as fueling, maintenance, catering, transportation/accommodation logistics, etc. In addition to their operational expertise and experience, they are also service orientated with an unwavering commitment to providing the best customer experience possible for both the passengers and flight crew, as they transient the airport.

Our partner in this endeavour, Tucana Aviation, is a well-established organization with a combined 30 years leadership experience in the aviation/oil and gas business. Their knowledge and experience, along with their unwavering commitment to safety/security as an existing tenant at the Red Deer Regional Airport, makes them an ideal partner. Tucana Aviation will be tasked with increasing the Charter and VIP traffic that utilizes the Red Deer Regional Airport, through various marketing and collaborative efforts with the Airport Authority.

Jim Freake, Operations Manager at Tucana Aviation states: “As the airports newest partner, we see huge potential for both oil and gas companies and private aircraft operators looking for VIP service while at the same time saving thousands in operating costs. We are truly thankful for this opportunity and look forward to helping grow the Red Deer Regional Airport”.

Graham Ingham, CEO of the Red Deer Regional Airport states: “We are very excited to be partnering with Tucana Aviation, and for the opportunity to further grow the airport by leveraging their experience and relationships. Focusing on service and making sure our customers have a positive experience while at the airport is also extremely important to us, as we attempt to capitalize on an already thriving charter market currently running along the Edmonton – Calgary corridor”.

The development of the Red Deer Regional Airports FBO partnership with Tucana Aviation is a vital step towards growth at the airport, and a big part of their future strategic planning. This, in addition to the recent unveiling of their land development strategy, and continued pursuit of scheduled air service, will ensure the airport is capable of achieving its vision of becoming the “Aviation Gateway and Key Economic Driver for Central Alberta”.

GM DEXOS MOTOR OIL – Why does it matter to you?

GM DEXOS MOTOR OIL

Why does it matter to you?

What is dexos oil?

Dexos oil is an engine oil that meets a specific set of stipulations. The stringent specifications dexos oil meets help your vehicle meet the latest standards for emissions and improve fuel efficiency. Even if emissions standards and fuel efficiency don’t rock your socks, you should use dexos oil for any engine that calls for it. The rationale being that the engine is designed in such a way that dexos oil specifications help it work as it should. Dexos oil is also specially developed for proper lubrication, sludge reduction, friction level moderation and controlling temperatures – the latter being especially important in vehicles with turbochargers or superchargers, as they create more heat. Coincidentally, due to the engine downsizing trend, the number of vehicles with forced induction (turbocharged or supercharged) has expanded quickly.

The dexos oil specification for GM vehicles also provides a global framework that enables GM vehicle owners anywhere in the world to know which oil is right for their vehicles, instead of making different blends for different regions as was often the case in the past.
 
Dexos goes beyond that.
 
Aside from meeting the current API (American Petroleum Institute) and ILSAC (International Lubricants Standardization and Approval Committee) requirements, dexos oils were developed through additional testing to provide a reduction in piston deposits of up to 28% and a slight improvement in fuel efficiency when compared to the API and ILSAC requirements.
 
What Is the Difference between dexos1 and dexos2? Can I use either?
 
No! Even though many of the features are very similar, dexos1 oils are designed for gasoline engines and dexos2 for diesels. Due to the inherent differences in operations between gasoline and diesel engines, using the intended oil is of the highest importance.
 
Can Dexos Be Used in Vehicles Older than 2011?
 
Even though you do not have to use Dexos oils in vehicles that were made before Dexos became the standard for GM, Dexos is compatible with older vehicles as well.
