Marc Bailey MBA, BSc Hons, Part 66 B1/B2/C

Marc has been part of the European project from JAA through to the inception of EASA. Representing ECOGAS on the original EASA advisory board for many years, he continues his work with National regulators and government agencies in order to retain a good understanding of the political landscape in aviation. Marc chairs several industry groups and has held several formal board positions in recent years.

Marc has been fortunate to work across a broad spectrum across aviation including scheduled airlines, MROs, military contracts and as a CEO representing 180 members in the UK. With many global organisations in the UK there is still significant interaction with our European colleagues.  Marc has been a fully operational licensed engineer for 40 years and still retains licences with type ratings, for older aircraft, some of which are still surprisingly in service. He has been a post holder in Continuing Airworthiness, Quality, Base Maintenance, and a Part 147 Training Facility.

With the ECOGAS team we are seeking to ensure that commercial GA activities are correctly recognised and that our SME/micro-organisations have appropriate, proportionate regulation to deliver the safe operational environment that we have maintained for many years. What we cannot accept is the application of regulations and guidance material designed for large organisations  if doing so increases risk in our members’ organisations. That increased risk is because of inappropriate application of limited resources in complex systems that do not generate either commercial or safety benefit. We need a more pragmatic risk-based oversight from our regulators and it is our job to help achieve this for you.
