Russ Gordon, Co-Founder, Chief Pilot, Sales and Acquisition Director
With nearly 20 years in aviation and aircraft sales under his belt, Russ still has a passion for what he does that many never experience.
“It’s in my blood. My Great Grandfather was in the RFC during WW1 and my love for aviation has always been there. I didn’t choose to be involved in aviation….flying and aviation, just chose me and I couldn’t resist”.
With his first GA flight taking place at the tender age of 7 in a DHC1 and having spent time as a Sales and Factory Representative Demo Pilot for Cessna and Cirrus Aircraft, Russ is exceptional at what he does. He has thousands of hours and is currently enjoying his flying on a Lear 45, having already spent multiple thousands of hours as Captain on Falcon 900, Challenger 605 and various Citation models and King Airs.
“I get a kick out of flying complex and fast aircraft, the best I can. I still love my GA involvement above most anything!”.
He’s added a helicopter licence to his portfolio too as well as being professionally trained and proven in Aviation Sales and Marketing.
“TFS Aviation and Absolute, allow me to concentrate my enthusiasm and have the privilege of pairing people, with the right aircraft. It’s immensely satisfying”.
With a great analytical eye for detail, a brilliant grasp of the technical aspects and with experience in the acceptance/delivery of new “big coin” jets, right down to small piston singles, Russ is the go to man with real World experience to draw on and he prides himself on finding the right aircraft that fits your needs.
