Louisa Gordon. Co-Founder, Marketing and Media
She started her flying licence back in 2004 at Turweston Airfield and quickly got bitten by the flying bug! She started working in the Cirrus UK Distributorship that same year and worked up from there. By 2007 the new Cirrus aircraft that had been sold into the UK started to come back up for sale as used Cirrus aircraft, but no one was looking after the used market. Together with Russ, she left Cirrus UK to start up Absolute Aviation to sell used Cirrus.
Over this time she handled many sales all over Europe, Africa, the USA and the Middle East. She set up a great network of support to create a safe space for an aircraft sale to take place. With great connections in Escrow, trusts, finance, insurance, maintenance and sales she can support a sale of any size and smooth out any deal.
In 2017 she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and fought her way back to full health by 2018, but this experience changed Russ’ and her perspective forever. This lead to a complete change in how they wanted to do business. If they were going to re-enter the aircraft sales world, it would be to make the whole sales experince safe and enjoyable, always leading with integrity.
The decision was made to create a safe space for a sale to happen and for the buyer to be fully represented and empowered, not daunted and overwhelmed.
This gave rise to a relaunch of Absolute Aviation with new partners and a whole new way of buying an aircraft, one that we stand by and are proud to bring to light.
