“ATI (Air Transport International) needed a highly competent and multi-skilled approach to purchase, put back in flight and export two French Air Force DC-8 aircraft for our cargo business based in Arkansas. We worked with Christian Castang and Jean Semiramoth because it was an exceptionally complex project involving purchase negotiation, export administration and de-asbestos operations. Their knowledge was invaluable to the success of the deal.”James Hobson
