Area: Operations

Aviation has always been in my family, and my love for flying has stemmed from this. I work for TAG Aviation at Farnborough Airport, my dad works in operations in the airline industry and my grandad worked in airline cargo for almost 50 years.


TAG Aviation is a leading Aircraft Management and Charter company, which is broadening my knowledge of the aviation business. The business jet operation has a huge variety of opportunities available for those interested in careers in aviation; Aviation Skills Partnership is allowing me to branch out and help other people on their path into the industry.

I started as an ambassador for ASP in July 2015, and since then have been fortunate to represent this organisation at numerous exhibitions including Pilot Careers Live, AeroExpo and College Open Days. Meeting like-minded people and having the opportunity to share my experiences and advice is great, and working with the ASP team at exhibitions and functions is very enjoyable and rewarding. I feel very fortunate to be able to work with ASP and help others find their route into Aviation, and look forward to continuing to do so throughout my career.
