Meet Geoffrey Rosenbloom
Computaplane Founder and CEO
To say that Geoffrey Rosenbloom knows his stuff when it comes to aircraft is an understatement. With over 66 years of flying experience, including 8 years as a fighter pilot in the RAF and 4 years as a commercial pilot for Loganair, Geoffrey lives and breathes aircraft.
In 1970, Geoffrey struck out on his own, setting up Air Charter Scotland, where he racked up over 1000 hours in a 6-seater twin engined Piper Aztec aircraft in the first year alone.
He spent the next 18 years flying newspapers every night from Glasgow to Belfast, never missing a single flight, as well as flying oil rig workers to work several times a week and businessmen all over UK and Europe for day meetings. It's this same unwavering dedication that Geoffrey put into the launch of Computaplane in 1978.
Why "Computaplane"? In 1978 Geoffrey ploughed £12,000 into what was then the latest IBM computer (which was also the size of a piano!) to facilitate the sale of aircraft. While that computer is long-retired, Geoffrey and Computaplane continue to thrive selling and delivering countless aircraft year on year that includes Airliners, Sea Planes, Warbirds, Trainers, Singles, Light Twins, Turboprops and Executive Jets.
