As CTC Aviation moves into its next phase of international growth and diversity, following its acquisition by L-3 Communications, it has appointed former Head of Short Haul for British Airways - Robin Glover-Faure - to the position of Vice President, Airline Training.

Robin will be responsible for working closely with both CTC Aviation and L-3 Link UK's airline and industry partners to create customer-focused, next-generation pilot training solutions. As part of this ove, 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 the CTC Aviation brand umbrella and sit within Robin's remit.

Robin brings further significant industry experience to CTC Aviation's established, highly capable senior executive team. Following a 20-year career at British Airways, he 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 complete his Air Transport Pilot Licence in 1993 and, during his career at BA, has enjoyed a diverse range of senior roles including pilot resourcing and training, airport operations, customer product and proposition, industrial negotiations, business planning and the safety management of large Air Transport operations at 'post holder' level.

Mike Redrupp, who has successfully headed up CTC Aviation's airline training activity since 2003, moves into the divisional support team of L-3 Commercial Training Solutions to hold a more focused customer relationship management role; buillding upon existing, long-standing airline partnerships and working to forge new relationships with business customers around the globe. Mike will also take responsibility for overseeing safety and regulatory matters, liaising with regulatory bodies globally to ensure compliance across the division.
