Steve Grimes joins Inflite as managing director
The Inflite Jet Centre at London Stansted Airport has appointed Steve Grimes in a new role as the company’s managing director.
Grimes has over 30 years of aviation experience to Inflite, most recently as chief executive officer of Ocean Sky Group.
Grimes said “My mission at Inflite is to take this excellent business to the next level and beyond by building on this platform and our superb FBO and MRO facilities. I am looking forward to growing the business in both areas, which could mean expanding with new locations for both operations and maintenance,” he said. “Inflite is one of the best kept secrets in business aviation offering fantastic service and quality standards, which is testified by the feedback received from our customers on the consistent quality of service.”
On assuming his new role, Grimes appointed Chris Sugden as Customer Support and AOG Manager. Chris brings 35 years of executive jet experience gained with BAE, NetJets, Raytheon, Harrods Aviation and Hawker Beechcraft.
Inflite is the only Embraer authorised service centre in Europe that is able to provide maintenance for the full range of Embraer Executive Jets.
Inflite is developing a strong capability with Boeing Business Jets (BBJ), currently performing up to C checks, and has boosted its offering with the recent addition of a third large hangar.
