Meet the Team
I have been flying since I was 19 when I got my FAA PPL and IR in the USA. I was formerly a tennis coach and I worked and saved as much as I could towards my flight training when I started the integrated, whitetail route at 22. I am now an SFO for a UK airline and have been flying commercially for over five years. I founded Aviation Insider in 2016 with the aim of making sources and information accessible and easy, and all in one place.
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.
Crew Services Manager
Now a Commercial Pilot, I’ve spent the last 5 years of my life in the aviation industry. Working at British Airways as Cabin Crew was the best post-university job I could have asked for! The opportunity to travel the world whilst being paid and meeting characters from all walks of life are what made my time as Crew so special. I especially loved working Upper Deck in Business Class on the 747, and my favorite route was LHR-CPT.
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.
737 Pilot and Drones Advisor
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.

Originally an aeronautical engineer, Mark first learnt to fly with the RAF as part of a University Air Squadron. That was 15 years ago and after qualifying as a commercial pilot has held roles in safety investigation and training. Always enthusiastic to demystify obscure aircraft systems or develop an individual’s competencies his passion is teaching, which is where he fits in with the team at Aviation Insider.

I’ve worked in the Aviation Industry for 10 years across several different roles.

This experience spans four airlines, including two low cost airlines, a regional carrier and a large network airline. I’m is also passionate about GA, and I have flown light aircraft transcontinentally in both the USA and Europe.

I started out as a PPL Instructor at Booker Aviation in November 2010. I’ve been flying for a UK-based airline for the last 11 years and have recently qualified as a TRE. I currently freelance as a consultant and work with Aviation Insider as an advisor to the a320 and with their new Category, Drones. I have my own drone company Airhound in which Aviation Insider outsources professional services too.
Content Creator and Marketing
Growing up in a family of aviators I’d always imagined myself finding a career in the industry. I left school in 2017 and to gain some useful experience I decided to become Cabin Crew. I spent a year traveling the world with British Airways on the 747, 777, and A320 before eventually commencing my pilot training in October 2018. More recently, I have been fortunate enough to gain a role as a First Officer for a large European airline and look forward to taking to the skies in the post-pandemic recovery.
