CTC Aviation has announced it has appointed Robin Glover-Faure, Former Head of Short Haul for British Airways, to the position of Vice President of Airline Training.
Glover-Faure will be responsible for working closely with both the trainer’s airline and industry partners to create pilot training solutions. As part of this move, L-3 Link UK’s Bangkok-based Asian Aviation Training Centre (AATC) and the recently announced Virgin Atlantic B787 RealitySeven™ simulator solution installed by L-3 Link UK, will both be consolidated under CTC Aviation and sit within Glover-Faure’s remit.
Following a 20-year career in British Airways, Glover-Faure most recently held responsibility for the profitability of their short-haul business. He has over thirty years of aviation experience in operational and commercial leadership roles having started his career in the Royal Air Force. He completed his Air Transport Pilots Licence in 1993 and, during his career at BA, he has enjoyed a diverse range of senior roles including pilot resourcing & training, airport operations, customer product & proposition, industrial negotiations, business planning and the safety management of large Air Transport operations at ‘post holder’ level.
“I’m delighted to be joining the team at this exciting time,” said Glover-Faure. “More than ever before our airline customers want creative, high quality but cost-effective solutions to their operational challenges. But I believe it’s not just about delivering solutions. It’s about delivering next generation solutions with world-class customer service and I’m absolutely committed to ensuring that into the future.”
Mike Redrupp, who has headed up CTC Aviation’s airline training activity since 2003,moves into the divisional support team of L-3 Commercial Training Solutions, also taking responsibility for overseeing safety and regulatory matters.
Rob Clarke, CTC Aviation’s President, said, “We have worked closely with Robin on a number of projects over the years and know from experience that he is absolutely ‘spot-on’ for our business – a great fit. His industry credibility is widely recognised and, aside from his obvious commercial attributes, we are very excited about the genuine customer-centred approach which Robin has clearly focused upon throughout his career to date. He will make what is already a very strong team, even stronger.”
