Profile

Originally established by Andy Farmer in 1998 as Air Freelance, the company was set up to supply ground staff to airlines on short term contracts such as maternity leave cover, new project support etc.

Using over 42 years of Andy’s experience and knowledge, the company developed over the years and then re-branded in 2014 as af-aviation.
