Edwin is both a private and commercial pilot who has learned from the discipline, rigour and safety of professional, corporate jet flying, to fly his family and business colleagues privately around Europe. He has owned his current aircraft for over ten years and it has proven to be an invaluable tool for business trips, otherwise impossible by airline. He now enjoys the pressurised comfort and enhanced safety of the Pilatus PC-12 NG to transport him and his growing family and business colleagues. With his family business background, Edwin thinks long-term and he has a real passion for doing business ethically and with the highest levels of integrity.
He holds an MBA from Oxford University in which he focused on business aviation and airport operating models, and he used this, coupled with an aviation venture capital background to form an aviation consultancy and to take an interest in other aviation activities in Europe and North America.
With a background in a global family retail business, Edwin has an appreciation for operating in a challenging business environment and providing added value contribution within a cost sensitive business as well as the need to balance the practicality of business travel with its luxury perception among employees and other stakeholders.
