Acropolis Aviation appoints new ground operations manager


Acropolis Aviation, the VVIP executive charter operator based at Farnborough Airport, UK, has appointed Mark Bird as ground operations manager.

Mark joins Acropolis from Air Tanker, the PFI initiative formed by Airbus, Babcock, Rolls/Royce, Thales and Cobham, which operates 14 Airbus A330-200 Voyager aircraft for the Royal Air Force (RAF), where he was operations duty manager for five years

“Mark is a welcome addition to our team with his multi-faceted operational experience gained in commercial airline, freight and airport operations,” said Acropolis CEO Jonathan Bousfield.

An early priority for Mark is to oversee the introduction of a next-generation flight planning solution, which comes on line in November. The system is being introduced ahead of the ACJ320neo’s arrival.

Acropolis opted to renew the flight planning system with myairops, which is supplied as  SaaS (Software as a Service) and mobile apps for managing flight and ground operations, handling, FBO and CAMO needs.

Both companies are at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas 21-24 October. Acropolis Aviation will be exhibiting at booth C9624 and myairops will be exhibiting at booth N4035.
