Our story begins with our Founder John Hopkinson. John started his career in aviation in 1959 and quickly became a well-known name in the industry internationally. John’s reputation as a successful negotiator, appraiser and visionary service provider was passed down to his sons who now run Hopkinson Aircraft Sales today. John has trained each member of the team to ensure they absorbed his highly varied international experience to ensure focused support for any aircraft-related need. Our team is dedicated and strives to ensure that this legacy is carried forward today. Below are the expert minds that keep Hopkinson as a force today in the modern marketplace.
