Tim Barber earns recognition by Spear's Review: Recommended 2024, Aviation.

Tim Barber, responsible for EMEA aircraft sales and acquisitions at Duncan Aviation, has been featured among the top private client advisors in the 2024 Spear's 500 Lifestyle Index. Spear's Magazine produces an annual listing of the very best advisors in the field of wealth management, legal, property, yachting and aviation, among many other sectors, as a guide to high and ultra high net worth individuals today. Barber is one of a small number of people who handle the sale and purchase of pre-owned aircraft highlighted in this year's edition.

Spear's highlights 27 leading industry figures in its Aviation Advisers Index, ranging from manufacturers, management companies and charter operators to training companies and fractional operators.

"It's a real honour to be recognised as a best aviation advisor from Spear's," says Barber. "This is a credit to the work ethic and professionalism of everyone within Duncan Aviation. The company strives to maintain the very highest levels of customer service across all of its activities. Clearly, when we are buying or selling an aircraft for a client, it goes without saying that we seek to achieve 100 per cent satisfaction. Spear's is a fantastic platform to showcase our capabilities, with events such as the Spear's 500 at the Savoy in May and the Awards Dinner in November creating further opportunities."
