As the founder of The Fersam International Group, established in 1982, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and how I started in the aviation business.
After completing my aeronautical engineering course at Chelsea College, London, I was given the opportunity of employment with Sir Freddie Laker, MD of British United.
Several mergers took place during my 25 years of employment and as I had now reached my final position as senior engineer/junior management with British Airways, I decided to further my career in the commercial aspect of independent aviation trading.
With all the experience accumulated over the years, I decided to form a trading company dealing with aircraft components.
After meeting my wife Patricia, who was employed by British Caledonian, she decided to join me in the initial support in handling of administration and accounting within my new company. As we both worked for the mutual airlines, we overcame various obstacles to achieve a successful business.
With the assistance of our two children, Julian and Samantha, both university students in Amsterdam, who joined our company at a later date, and have since become an essential asset to our growing business.
Fersam International group has expanded to consist of several subsidiaries, including Touchdown Aviation, (TDA) , which is now a respectful and professional organization in the aviation industry worldwide.
