Our team at Lone Mountain Aircraft is excited to announce that we are officially expanding our footprint into Europe with the addition of our first-ever European-based representative, Philippe Polman. Based out of London, Philippe will help provide European aircraft owners with the same peace-of-mind LMA has sought to provide its clients in the U.S. for over a decade.

“I’m delighted to join forces with Lone Mountain to deepen the company’s premium level of service to European clients and continue its focus of providing turbulence-free transactions,” said Philippe. 

According to Philippe, a factor that makes Lone Mountain unique in Europe is its sole-focus on pre-owned aircraft.

“This is an exciting time for general aviation in Europe and there is significant potential for growth in the market. Our dedication to the pre-owned sector provides many advantages to owners, one being that we often take aircraft in on trade – not necessarily contingent on a purchase,” said Philippe. 

International experience is nothing new for Lone Mountain or Philippe. Our team has assisted in international transactions many times while Philippe, originally from Switzerland, has been a part of the general aviation world in both markets for nearly 20 years.

In addition to his position as Lone Mountain’s European representative, Philippe is director of Elite Aero Services, a premium flight school and aviation business consultancy. He founded Elite Aero following several years as the London-based sales director for Cirrus Aircraft, where he expanded the company’s client support capabilities in Europe, developed new sales strategies and built a broad network of relationships to benefit aircraft owners and pilots. 

Philippe is also the founder of the London Flying Club, bringing together aviators for networking events in central London, UK. In addition to his career in aviation, he has a global background in corporate communications, with experience across Europe, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas.
