RDC Aviation to expand through acquisition of London-based Aviation Economics


RDC Aviation, a fast-growing Nottingham business with global customers in the aviation sector, is to acquire a complementary aviation consultancy based in London.

Peter Hind, MD of RDC Aviation, explains “The business has grown rapidly in the past few years and we have invested in a range of software tools, alongside our core consultancy. Recently we have developed a successful transaction advisory business supporting deals to buy or sell airports.

The acquisition of Aviation Economics gives us a foothold in the City of London, where many of these deals are done, as well as expanding our consultancy team. This is an exciting time for the business as our focus becomes increasingly international and we believe by combining the two organisations, we are creating a global leader in the aviation consultancy sector.”

Bringing together the two companies will result in Tim Coombs, one of the founding partners of Aviation Economics, joining RDC Aviation as Director of Consultancy. Tim has more than 25 years in the aviation industry, and will deliver a wealth of experience and contacts which will make a major contribution to the future success of RDC Aviation.
