Gary Saul

Managing Director

I have been flying since I was 19 when I got my FAA PPL and IR in LA. I was a county-ranked tennis player and tennis coach whilst I worked and saved as much as I could towards my flight training. I did the integrated, whitetail route at 22. I am now a Captain for a UK airline and have been flying commercially for over 8 years. I founded Aviation Insider in 2016 with the aim of making a global aviation platform accessible, easy, and all in one place.

Rachel Smith

Marketing Coordinator

I started my career in 2015 with 5 years as cabin crew for British Airways. I was lucky enough to be crew on the B747 as well as being selected as crew for the inaugural A350 long haul flight. I thoroughly enjoyed my role as cabin crew, but it was here that I realised I wanted to work the other side of the flight deck door! Currently studying an integrated ATPL, I undertook ground school through the pandemic and completed it in early 2021.

Jonny Petts

Pilot Regulations Advisor and TRE

Jonny started flying in 1998 . He began his career as a flying instructor before joining a regional airline on the Jetstream 41. He moved onto the A320 in 2007 and received his command in 2011. He has always had a passion for training and has taught AQC, MCC, type rating and MPL. He qualified as a TRE in 2018 and now specialises in aircrew and airline regulation.

Elliot Westacott

I have worked as an Operations Manager for a flight experience company and at Gatwick as part of the Airfield Operations team. I have been a commercial pilot since 2015 and flown for Ryanair for 2 years before moving to TUI in 2017. At TUI I help support our Flight Operations team conducting Operational Safety Audits, working on the Fuel Efficiencies team, and as part of our newly formed MAX Champions team. At Aviation Insider I help support the 737 based content, media/development advising on our new category, drones.
