Director of Operations at Sunbird Aviation
“I have had the privilege to have Rob Martin on our corporate aviation team for over eight years now and confidently recommend his professionalism, depth of expertise and skill as an aviator and project manager. Capt. Martin has served as our FAR 135 Worldwide Chief pilot since hire and continues to expand in his oversight of our operational compliance, vendor expense refinement and in-house dispatch of almost all of our international operations. His ability to manage fuel, operational and Handling/FBO expenses has set a new standard in performance, value and reliability. In short, as D.O. of our aviation department, I literally could not do my job without his expertise as well as my respect for his alternative solutions/creativity in an ever more challenging aviation and compliance environment. Capt. Martin’s contributions to our department have been far above our expectations and, most importantly consistently raises our standards in operational safety, expense mitigation and team contribution. I could not more highly value his dedication, professionalism and consistent success and best possible efficiencies of our operations and certificate management. It has been an honor to have Capt. Martin as a key resource in our Gulfstream G450 operations.”
Chief Test Pilot at Gulfstream Aerospace
Rob and I first met when Rob joined the Flight Operations Committee of the Gulfstream Aerospace Customer Advisory Board. As co-chair of the committee, I have a chance to meet all of the new members. Rob immediately stood out among the other new members as being very intelligent and knowledgeable both in the aviation field and in new electronic technology unrelated to aviation. As a member of the Board, Rob would challenge status quo and always urge Gulfstream to push the envelope. Because of Rob’s proactive attitude, he was selected to participate in the ATCAT or Advanced Technology Customer Advisory Team. Rob jumped in immediately with several excellent ideas for future products. Rob’s tenure on the ATCAT ended before we announced our two new airplanes (G500 & G600). Rob should be proud to know that he was contributing to the design of these two new highly advanced airplanes. Well done, Rob!

His knowledge as a Captain is paramount to everything aviation. I look forward to continuing to work with Rob for many years to come.
