The ACA is today announcing the appointment of new board member, Dave Connor, Managing Director of RVL Group.

Dave has over 14 years of aviation experience and is a specialist in air operations management. He is the third new board member that The ACA has appointed this year, following Emily Williams and Derek Thomson in January.

Dave Connor, board member, The ACA, says: “This year will be a very exciting time for the global air charter industry, although not without its challenges. I’m looking forward to contributing to the industry’s development and supporting the association in its mission to help air charter navigate successfully through global issues such as the pandemic and sustainability, as well as the challenges which affect specific regions.”

Connor will be continuing his role as Managing Director of RVL Group, the specialist aviation services provider and aircraft operator. Connor is an expert in commercial and business development, marketing, and air operations management. In 2019, he received his Master of Business Administration (MBA) with Distinction and the Dean’s Award, from the University of Hertfordshire, having studied part-time. He is also a Freeman of the City of London and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers, an active livery investing in young people with a focus on the aerospace and automotive sectors.

Kevin Ducksbury, chairman of The ACA, adds: “We look forward to welcoming Dave to our board. His appointment, alongside Derek Thomson and Emily Williams in January, highlights The ACA’s mission to continuously develop and expand our expertise within the aviation industry. Dave has broad experience in the industry and his knowledge in compliance and regulatory procedures will prove particularly invaluable to the Association across many of its initiatives including the campaign against illegal charter.”
