Trio join forces for new business aviation company


A new full-service business aviation company, Vulcan Aviation, has been established by a ‘supergroup’ of three industry executives.

These joint directors are Trevor Esling, until recently regional senior vice president of sales for Gulfstream Aerospace; Roger Whyte, former senior vice president of worldwide sales and marketing at Cessna Aircraft Company; and Barry Johnson, aircraft management entrepreneur and CEO of Executive Jet Charter.

From its headquarters at Farnborough Airport in the UK, Vulcan Aviation will support international clients at every stage of the aircraft ownership journey, from acquisitions and sales to management, operations and maintenance.

“Under a globally accomplished leadership team, Vulcan Aviation gives owners a rare advantage in aircraft sourcing, negotiations and in maximising the benefits of ownership,” said Esling.

“Trevor Esling, Barry Johnson and I have held senior leadership positions in several of the world’s foremost OEMs and flight departments, negotiated some of the industry’s largest deals and built trusted relationships with many of the world’s most sophisticated aircraft owners and operators,” said Whyte. “This gives us a formidable array of knowledge, skills and connections to wield on behalf of clients.”

“Vulcan Aviation offers a highly bespoke and relationship-based approach to corporate and private owners, founded on a wealth of international management and operational experience,” said Johnson. “I look forward to bringing my 30-plus years of operations management experience and high levels of customer service to our clients.”
