Jason started his career with British Airways after having completed an Engineering Degree in the UK. He was responsible for wide-body maintenance on Concorde, Boeing 747 & 777 culminating in the position of Engineering Manager for the airline’s Heathrow long-haul operations.
After eight years with the airline, he turned his attention to business aviation and joined the commercial department of TSA Transairco in Geneva, Switzerland, a Major Dassault Service Center. Two years later he set up a company to operate and charter business aircraft for owners seeking to improve their returns on investment and reduce operating costs.
In 2003, he returned to TSA Transairco as CEO to lead the company through a major restructuring to ensure its future profitability as an Authorised Dassault, Hawker Beechcraft and Pilatus Service & Sales Center. The company was bought by RUAG in 2007 and now operates under the name of RUAG Aviation. During his seven-year tenure, he returned the company back to profitability, modernized the company’s business philosophy and introduced a more customer oriented service attitude.
Jason founded MPLANES in 2009, a business aviation consultancy company specializing in management, technical consultancy and sales.
