Aerobility has a new Chief Flying Instructor: former RAF pilot Al Rosser. Al takes over from Mike Owen who is ‘semi-retiring’ after 15 years in the role.

Al Rosser’s aviation career began when he joined the Royal Air Force straight after leaving school, and he went on to complete three tours on the TriStar with 216 Sqn and one tour as an instructor on the Bulldog at Liverpool University Air Squadron.

Al eventually left the RAF to work for Marshall Aerospace where he flew Hercules aircraft on post-maintenance test flights and taught at the Flying Club.

For the past 15 years, he has been working in Business Aviation managing and flying Bombardier Challenger bizjets and the Pilatus PC-12 turboprop.

Al, 54, said, “Having always enjoyed instructing, this seemed like an excellent opportunity to use my skills in a positive way that would benefit the charity.

“I grew up with my mum suffering from multiple sclerosis and it left an indelible mark upon the way I speak to and interact with disabled people. I appreciate that everyone has something to give and that a disability never defines anyone.

“I am looking forward to carrying on the great work already done and seeing it through the next 10 years of development as we grow the charity’s presence across the UK. This will encompass even greater reach to disabled people who would benefit from the magic of flight in their lives.”

Aerobility CEO Mike Miller-Smith added, “With his passion for aviation and many years of experience, I know that Al is going to be a fantastic addition to the team.”
