Bill Ashcroft (Lyttelton 86)

“My greatest achievement at Stowe was rappelling down the Cobham Monument. After being in the CCF at Stowe, I spent three years in the US Army, I then had a short stint in Hollywood working in film production before becoming a commercial helicopter pilot. I have flown over 4,000 hours during my career. I founded the shared private jet sector with Jumpjet and co-founded the iAero Airline Group, which today flies 44 Boeing 737s/767s and includes aircraft maintenance and engine overhaul businesses in the USA. I’m founder and CEO of the private investment firm Cingo Global and have been seen on CNN, New York Times, Bloomberg and Time magazine. I am married to Jessica and we have two children, Charlie and Lilly.”
