Stanton & Partners Aviation - a premier private aviation brokerage company dedicated to the sale and purchase of private aircraft - proudly welcomes two esteemed leaders, who will be instrumental in bolstering the Dubai- headquartered company growth. Private aviation sector is experiencing dynamic shifts, and Stanton & Partners Aviation is ideally positioned to capitalize on these trends from its dynamic showroom based in the heart of DIFC — promising an exceptional experience elevated by peerless trust and expertise.

Benoit Defforge has stepped into the role of CEO at Stanton & Partners Aviation. As the former head of Airbus Corporate Jets division, Benoit brings a deep understanding of the aviation industry and a wealth of experience — equipping him with the necessary expertise to successfully conceive and deliver strategies that will propel the company forward into a future marked by innovation.

He is joined by Michael Nelson, who will spearhead legal affairs and strategy for Stanton & Partners Aviation in his position of Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel.

Michael has moved from international law firm Clyde & Co, where he spent over a decade in the firm’s Dubai office as a partner leading the aviation team in the Middle East and Africa. With extensive experience in the financing, leasing, and acquisition of commercial aircraft, engines, business jets, and helicopters, Michael has firmly established his reputation as a leading aviation lawyer recognized by prestigious legal directories— including Chambers & Partners, The Legal 500, and Who’s Who Legal.

Allan Stanton, founder of Stanton & Partners Aviation, commented: “Stanton & Partners Aviation is committed to elevating the private aviation experience — and investing in the right talent is pivotal. As such, we are delighted to welcome two industry titans to our team. They are invaluable additions as we expand our regional footprint, enabling us to continue our growth as we build new and deepen existing relationships globally.”
