When: 13 November2019 at 7.00pm
Where: Marlborough Aero Club –Clubrooms–100 Aerodrome Road, Omaka
Speaker: Alan Clayton, AMRAeS

Alan Clayton is well qualified to speak to us about the aircraft deliveries at Boeing. His broad-based,worldwide aviation engineering career has included 5 years with Ryanair as the sole-charge aircraft delivery manager based at Boeing in Seattlea nd responsible for a programme to deliver 400 aircraft.

This will be the focus of Alan’s presentation,but he is open to questions on any part of his extensive aviation career.He was also employed by Boeing as a Base Manager and Field Service Representative in London and Mumbai.

Alan’s prior and subsequent employment illustrates the opportunities that exist around the world for a well-qualified, talented and motivated licenced aircraft maintenance engineer both in the technical field and in management and other areas. Organisations he has worked directly for include but are not limited to: British Airways, Air New Zealand, KLM, Ansett Worldwide Leasing in Nairobi and elsewhere, National Air Service in Saudi Arabia, Babcock and Brown (Australia, Norway etc), Matsushita Avionic Systems, GCAM in UK (including aircraft dismantling for spares) and DHL. While with these companies Alan has worked with or been involved with scores of aircraft types, very many airlines and dozens of countries.For a time,Alan was resident in Blenheim commuting overseas to far-flung workplaces,so he has a local connection!

Alan’s presentation should provide engineers and others alike with fascinating insights into many facets of aviation from delivering aircraft to operating them and finally pulling them apart. Alan is currently on holiday in New Zealand and will be kindly dropping by to talk to us. As a matter of interest,he is the man you want if you are looking for a skilled pub quiz team member.
