Thierry Boutsen’s initial interest in corporate aircraft sales sparked during his career in motorsport where he spent 23 years driving racing cars including 10 years and 164 GP in Formula 1. Thierry bought his first aircraft and consequently sold and upgraded several times. What began as a casual hobby soon gained the respect and admiration of his fellow F1 drivers, after which he started to advise and assist in the aircraft purchases of his colleagues. 

After retiring from the racing world in 1997, the seed of an idea was born: Thierry and his wife Daniela created Boutsen Aviation to start a second career in aviation brokerage. Boutsen Aviation is recognised as one of the leaders in the complete management of corporate aircraft sales and acquisitions. Based in Monaco, with representatives in Moscow, New Delhi, Switzerland and Northern Europe, Boutsen Aviation is recognised worldwide thanks to the relationships with customers based on trust, reliability and irreproachable ethics.

The reputation of the company was officially recognised by the award of an exclusive endorsement in 2014  ‘By Appointment to HSH the Sovereign Prince of Monaco.’ To date, Boutsen Aviation has sold 389 aircraft, in 73 countries across 5 continents.
