Faradair appoints Tinseth and Anderson
Faradair has hired Randy Tinseth and Tony Anderson “to help steer the company through its next phase of growth.” Headquartered at the Imperial War Museum Duxford’s historic Cambridgeshire airfield, Faradair continues to develop its bio-electric hybrid aircraft (Beha). Other appointments to the executive and engineering teams are expected to follow shortly.
As the former vice president marketing for Boeing commercial airplanes, Tinseth will chair Faradair Aerospace Limited’s advisory board. He has almost 40 years’ experience in aviation and has also served as a Boeing spokesperson.
Anderson is a former Easyjet executive, joining this air company in 1995 as a key member of the start-up team. Later, he became marketing director for Easy Group. He has also held marketing roles with British Airways, Thomas Cook and Kantar TNS.
Tinseth: “This Bio Electric Hybrid Aircraft will bring a unique combination of size, range, efficiency and environmental performance to the market”.
Beha is optimised for hybrid power, it will employ 1MW Honeywell turbo generator, delivering electricity to a magnix electric propulsion unit, and will be able to support an 18 passenger/5 t payload. (amh)
