Profile

Adam Twidell

Description

Former Royal Air Force pilot Adam Twidell switched to flying private jets after leaving the military, joining NetJets before later teaming up with London City Airport, where he won the contract to develop RAF Northolt into what is now one of the UK’s most exclusive private jet hubs.

Having spotted the opportunity to use technology to transform the fragmented marketplace, he co-founded PrivateFly with his wife, Carol Cork, and is today the firm’s chief executive. Established in Europe since 2008, PrivateFly recently opened a new US office in Miami – having already set up shop in New York and Los Angeles. US business aviation customers now represent a third of the company’s flight sales.
