Daniel first became involved with the Aircraft Maintenance industry in 2003, during an undergraduate internship with Bellview Airlines (Nig.). As an intern he was exposed to a broad range of activities including line maintenance, continuing airworthiness management, and the procurement of parts and spares for the airline’s fleet of B737-200/JT8D aircraft. Following his undergraduate studies, he got involved with an aviation events firm where his role was to plan and organise aviation seminars. He later pursued and completed a Masters degree in Aerospace Engineering with Distinction at the University of Salford, before joining Eastern Airways (UK) in 2008 as a technical records and maintenance planning engineer for the airline’s fleet of BAe Jetstream 4100/TPE331-14 and SAAB 2000/AE2100 aircraft.

He was also actively involved with the initial accreditation of the University’s BEng(Hons) programme in Aircraft Engineering by the Royal Aeronautical Society, and in the development of a number of modules including the Aircraft Engineering Reliability and Maintenance Management module. Furthermore he initiated, conducted, and published a research on the application of lean management principles to aircraft maintenance production, during which he completed a case study visit to the Lufthansa Technik MRO facility in Hamburg to observe and learn from their pioneering lean activities.
Daniel is currently the managing director, and principal airworthiness consultant at Wing Engineering Limited. He is a highly proficient and enthusiastic professional.
