Blueberry Aviation has appointed Philippe Minot Commercial Director Middle East. A leading provider of large commercial aircraft placement, investment and lease management services, Blueberry Aviation is based in Monaco, Dublin, New York and Singapore. The company has completed over 435 helicopter transactions with over 270 customers since 2003. It has long considered the Middle East market as a key market. With Minot now reinforcing its presence in the region, Blueberry Aviation is in a position to better offer remarketing and sourcing solutions suited to Middle Eastern customers.

“Philippe has a broad understanding of regional specificities and his extensive experience and network in the Middle Eastern aerospace industry is perfectly suited to the task,” commented Francois Gautier, CEO of Blueberry Aviation.

With over 32 years of total aerospace industry experience, Minot recently left Airbus Helicopters where he was Head of Sales-Middle East for 15 years, covering civilian and military products. He previously held sales and management positions at Dassault Electronique and Thales.
