Short history

Our company was founded in 2006 as Global Air Ferry LTD in the United Kingdom by Russell Sherwood, a U.K. based and a U.S., China and Indonesia certified commercial pilot and flight instructor. The company specialized in U.S. to E.U., from brokers to buyers, light airplane delivery. Following the initial success, in 2007 Russell attracted a number of highly experienced retired airline pilots to join the operation and started ferrying a wider range of airplanes internationally covering more complex trans-oceanic routes from U.S. and E.U. to Asia and Africa. After succesfully operating for four years, the company was acquired by a Russian aircraft sales broker, Firstavia Group LLC and continued operation on the international scale as a support department for company's growing airplane sales business. Due to company's further expansion, Firstavia Group LLC formed its U.S. branch, Raich Aerospace Group LLC. Later, along with other qualified aviation professionals, Russell Sherwood has re-joined the company's U.S. department as a lead aviation training consultant and headed its DBA aviation training trademark "Aerocadet"
