Chapman Freeborn celebrates 50 years


Chapman Freeborn, the global air charter specialist and part of Avia Solutions Group, has celebrated its 50th anniversary with a party at Tower Bridge, London.

Held on 7th November 2023 in the West Walkway, 42 metres above the River Thames, the party brought together 300 of Chapman Freeborn’s passenger air charter clients, comprising commercial, business aviation and airlines, for an evening of entertainment, refreshments, and reflections on 50 prosperous years of business.

Guests were treated to mind-bending tricks from a mentalist, against a backdrop of panoramic views of London, featuring the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, the Shard and the City of London.

Drinks were sponsored by global insurance broker, Gallagher Specialty.

Eric Erbacher, Group CEO at Chapman Freeborn, said, “Our celebration at Tower Bridge was the perfect event to enjoy our half-century milestone with our fantastic commercial passenger, business aviation and airline community. Our business is very much people and relationship driven, thus we appreciate the personal touch in everything we are doing together with our esteemed partners.”

Erbacher continues, “Celebrating with hundreds of the people who have shaped our business and helped us to reach our position in the industry was very special. Without our valued customers we would not be where we are today.

“We are happily looking forward to the next 50 years.”
