Took Tiger 8 months to get a AOC for 3 Aircraft. Proving flight was the night before operational launch. They are the only operator who got it first go. They had a Singapore operation to walk the Safety body through which helped build confidence with Canberra. Any new operator might not have that luxury and will face a 12-18 month start.
