One of the many things that matters to our customers and pilots of the PC-12 NG, is that we ourselves are immersed in the world of aircraft ownership, and indeed our CEO is a pilot himself.
There is not a thing that we don’t know about aircraft that we sell or maintain.
Edwin is both a private and commercial pilot who has learned from the discipline, rigour and safety of professional and corporate jet flying, to fly his family and business colleagues privately around Europe.
He has owned aircraft for over fourteen years, which have proven invaluable business tools, for missions otherwise impossible by airline. He now enjoys the pressurised comfort and enhanced safety of the Pilatus PC-12 NG. 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.
Edwin 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 a consultancy to advise on the commercial aspects of aviation in Europe. Edwin still holds investments in both aviation and non-aviation businesses.
