The Little Jet Company welcomes a new pilot
From PPL to commercial licences via flight dispatcher and ground ops, Graham Tate has now found his place as pilot and trainer with the boutique operator.
Pilot Graham Tate joins The Little Jet Company.

Gloucestershire airport-based The Little Jet Company has welcomed a new pilot. Graham Tate, a 49 year-old father of two, will also be training other pilots.

His love of flying came from his father who worked in the aviation industry for most of his life. "It's something I've always wanted to do," says Tate.

He gained his private pilot licence when he was 17. His aviation career started as a flight dispatcher, and he also worked in ground operations. He gained his commercial licences when he was 32.

"Every week is different, and that's what I love about flying," he says. "I love the variety of the job. I like the clients we have. It's nice to chat to them. We have regular clients, and it's also nice to meet new people. I want to do as much for them as I can. It's also nice to see different places all the time."

In September Tate flew to destinations including Palma, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Guernsey, Dusseldorf, Switzerland, Belgium and Inverness. He enjoys working for The Little Jet Company. "They are all great guys," he continues. "It's a growing company, and it's nice to be involved with a company that's expanding and has ambition."

Whether it's a worldwide or European business flight, a special occasion with family or friends or an international sporting event, The Little Jet Company offers a personal and comprehensive executive jet airline service. People travelling for business can save time by having airside access, allowing them to drive right up to the aircraft.

The Little Jet Company provides services including privately owned jets for charter, management of aircraft and ground handling services.
