Ben started his career as an unlicensed mechanic and gradually worked his way up to receive his EASA engineers license in 2008. He is holder of an EASA B1/C license with five types endorsed.
Having spent eight years in the Middle East working for a business jet operator Ben has gained a substantial amount of experience in operating, maintaining and recovering business jets from any part of the world.
In his position as a lead engineer he helped grow a small fleet of 6 Bombardier aircraft into a substantial fleet of over 25 Bombardier and Gulfstream jets. He was part of the introduction of the G650 as well as G500 types into the fleet.
