Speur; Traditional Scottish Gaelic for the sky, or heavens. Speur Aviation exists to contribute to the growth and development of the human interface with the sky…. aviation.
With offices in Luxembourg and the United Kingdom, Speur Aviation has an enviable position in being able to advise both inside and outside of EASA boundaries. A relatively young company, Speur Aviation’s roots draw from decades of experience. The people involved in Speur Aviation have been in and around aviation their whole professional life, giving this dynamic company the opportunity and resources to springboard toward a highly successful future, both for the company and its clientele. Starting small (but thinking big), today Speur Aviation participates in a number of aviation-related activities. These range from Personnel Recruitment services for both companies and candidates to assisting operators in their Safety Management Solutions, or gaining their Air Operator Certificate to taking care of the sometimes complex task of Aviation Manual Writing, or even conducting an internal Audit or Inspection, mimicking a regulatory Audit. Speur Aviation’s consultancy services are here to assist and help build the industry back into what it once was and to reach the potential of what it could be.
We commit to digging deep for you, finding the best solution to your aviation requirements.

Throughout his career, John has worked for several major airlines. Through this, John has gained varied experience within different flight department structures and cultures. Much of John’s flying has been in Europe, with a taste of the Middle East, after the second Iraqi war. More recently, John operated as a Captain, flying the Boeing 777, for a Chinese company before then taking a command position with a large European operator, flying the Boeing 787. The recent Covid crisis found John moving in a slightly different direction, operating a smaller aircraft, the Pilatus PC-12, for another European company. Recognising his depth of experience, he was asked to contribute to their regulatory obligations in writing and amending their company operational manual suite. This recent experience gained ideally places John to relate to any clientele aviation consultancy needs that arise, enabling him to develop bespoke solutions very effectively.
Having been a professional pilot for 24+ years and with over 14,000 flight hours, John is a cornerstone team member at Speur Aviation.
“It is a privilege for me to meet the challenge Aviation Consultancy brings. Speur Aviation has a different approach to consultancy, by putting relationships first”
