    He led the team which conducted the massive flight test program on the airliner from the British Aircraft Corporation/British Aerospace flight test center at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire. He also carried out its global test, demonstration and route-proving tours.

    He also carried out its global test, demonstration and route-proving tours including the 40,000 mile Sales Promotion tour in 1972 to the middle east where Concorde took to the skies from Tehran Airport, with the Shah of Iran on board. Officials were pleased with the flight, and they ordered three aircraft.
