Adrian Barralet

Can anyone fill me in on this chap? Met him in Geneva the other day and we were talking business.
Just trying to get a feel for him...

Wow, this guy is something else!
He told me he flew VC-10s for BOAC and he was chief pilot at Bookajet and a few other stories...
Pinch of salt I guess.

Thanks for the PMs guys...

Guess you do not get banned by the CAA as a post holder for nothing.

Many thanks

Cant comment on his later business activities....but he did give me a good break just when I needed it earlier in my flying career and I ended up checking out on his Partenavias. He wasn't particularly toooooo upset when I announced that, right after checking out to the line, I had been selected by Brymon and that a full time job there was a better option for me than a part time job with him at Osprey. So 'thank you' to Adrian B!! He took it with good grace and even admitted that he would have done the same thing in my shoes. Did much to ease my embarrassment and awkwardness and now i'm flying 380s!!

So, no one knows where Adrian Barralet is exactly?! It's always good to keep these types at arms length, but better to know where they crawl around...
