Originally formed in 1992, HighLine has been co-ventured with AC-U-KWIK since 1998. In addition to representing the brand for advertising sales and product distribution outside North America, HighLine actually provides, under separate licence, the international airport & handling data used across the product range and particularly in the International Airport/FBO Directory.
The HighLine Team:
Alain George, Data Sales & Licensing
Alain has been flying as a commercial pilot for over 30 years and has personally visited over 800 airports in the AC-U-KWIK database. With over 20 jet aircraft types on his licence he has flown worldwide, operating flights for air ambulance, executive charter and government agencies. He has been involved in charter start-ups in the UK, Far East and Africa and remained a director of his own aircraft management company up until 2005. Alain continues to travel frequently in order to further research and add to the accuracy of the database and to build contacts within the aviation industry. He also enjoys shooting competitively and has ambitions for the 2012 Olympic Trap Shooting event!
