Martin Robinson brought a new dimension to AOPA when he began helping out as a volunteer in the office in 1991. A City broker specialising in pension loanbacks, he left to become a commercial pilot before getting sidetracked.
He is currently the CEO of AOPA UK.
Martin brought the benefits of his commercial background to AOPA and has made innovations which many members today take for granted. He added legal services and started sitting in on CAA interviews with accused members, and revamped the member's magazine, Aircraft Owner & Pilot, which is published bimonthly and sets a high standard for aviation publications everywhere. He has encouraged member participation, and set up the Member's Working Group.
