I love to see aircraft

Derk-Jan van Heerden

This is Derk-Jan. He is the founder of AELS. The best experience in the world, according to Derk-Jan, is when you sell your aircraft or buy an experienced component.

In addition, to further encourage the reuse of materials within the aviation sector, Derk-Jan started the Aethos foundation. Aethos is an organization that helps the world to improve aircraft recycling. 

In september 2023 Derk-Jan officially announced his decision to step down as CEO of AELS due to personal medical circumstances. Johan Vlastuin became our new CEO.
