They are joined by Paul Bingley, who comes with 30 years of aviation experience, the last 12 of which have been spent working with the An-124-100. Martin Griffiths joins with 18 years of aviation experience, having worked with the An-124-100 in both an operational and sales capacity. A new face to the UK sales team is Martin Banns, who has spent his entire career in the aviation industry, the last eight of which have been with the An-124-100.
