Adam Twidell
CEO, PrivateFly.com

Adam began his career as a pilot - first for 10 years with the RAF, then with NetJets - before launching PrivateFly in 2008. He recognized major inefficiencies in the fragmented private aviation charter market and the opportunity for a disruptive, technology-driven model, following patterns in the wider travel industry. PrivateFly links private jet customers to available aircraft - via web and app platforms and a 24/7 Flight Team - and is integrated with the industry supply chain.

Adam is an innovative voice for the business aviation industry, and was named by Aviation Week as one of the Top 10 Leaders of European Business Aviation in both 2015 & 2014, the judges calling him an ‘Internet Pioneer.’ He is a Council member of industry body BACA and remains a passionate and active pilot.
