Stuart Metcalfe

Stuart started his professional life having completed military training at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He was commissioned into the King's Regiment as a 2nd lieutenant. He remained an officer for several years, undertaking multiple roles including serving as a platoon commander on operations in Northern Ireland. After leaving the army Stuart worked as an offshore commercial diver working on subsea engineering projects in the UK, Oman, and the UAE. Stuart's first role in sales came when he returned to the UK and joined General Motors Group on an accelerated sales and management programme. After 4 years Stuart then decided a new challenge was in order so he left General Motors and completed his ATPL at Oxford Aviation training in 2001/2002. On achieving his ATPL Stuart decided to combine his love of sales and flying and joined a UK aviation company on the south coast where he was responsible for sales of Piper and Pilatus products. His success led him to be offered the Sales Director role at Pilatus UK where he sold and flew the PC12. Stuart then moved over to Patriot Aviation selling Cessna, Bell, and Eurocopter products before being headhunted by a leading aircraft brokerage based in central London.

Over the next 9 years, Stuart acquired sound knowledge conducting close to $1 billion USD of aircraft sales. Completing multiple cross-border sales Stuart gained a wealth of tax & customs experience and also worked closely with all the manufacturers and major maintenance facilities, ensuring his client's interests were always looked after. As a member of AMAC/EBAA Stuart served on the sales and acquisition committee and was instrumental in the creation of the Aircraft Brokers Guidebook.


Max Hooper

Max started his aviation career in 2011 upon leaving university.

He joined the charter brokerage Avolus based in London where he discovered his passion for the industry. The company ceased trading in 2012 and Max decided to take time off to look at other career opportunities.

Within 6 months he had returned to aviation with Hunt and Palmer, the long established charter broker and a generally recognised market leader, where he had some very happy and productive years. During his time there he looked after key accounts on the brokerage side and developed new business. His client base ranged anywhere from private banks to leaders of industry and multi-platinum recording artists.

At the beginning of 2015 Max left to join a major aircraft sales brokerage where he worked closely with Stuart. They formed a strong team over the next six and a half years, conducting business involving an array of high-net-worth individuals and national governments, and representing an aircraft manufacturer in an official capacity looking after their preowned aircraft sales in Europe.
