Our Aviation History

Meet our team
Upon his return to the UK Chris took up a position as an aviation insurance broker in the City of London and spent the next ten years managing the risk portfolios for a number of European airlines including major flag carriers. He then moved into the credit derivative markets working for a leading French bank before finally striking out on his own to set up as an independent aviation consultant.
This newest venture sees Chris working as Commercial Manager at Hermes Aviation Consulting which was the inspiration of David Briggs-Wilson. Both David and Chris share the same vision which is to initiate and nurture long-term relationships with their clients, managing every aspect of their aviation portfolio.
Chris lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and four-year-old daughter.
Having experienced the delights of the world at the slow pace of between 10 and 12 knots on board ships, he left the Mercantile Marine for the faster pace of the Royal Air Force. After being commissioned his engineering skills were furthered and he was given the opportunity of embarking on flying training. After completing his training David flew on various operational squadrons.
Retiring from the Royal Air Force David entered a different world of aviation moving from fast jet fighters to the world of general aviation. He has held a number of senior positions in business aviation including over 10 years of active multi aircraft operations and management before turning his attention to Hermes Aviation Consulting.
David notes with a wry smile, that he entered the world of aviation in the “golden age” when it was more a vocation than a something to do. David celebrates over 50 years of aviation experience with over 35 years dedicated to general and business aviation. It is now that this experience and hard-earned knowledge can be put to good use in Hermes Aviation Consulting.
