Confidential Human Factors Incident Reporting Programme
|Captain Jeremy Burrows
Jeremy was commissioned into the Royal Air Force in 1980 as a General Duties Officer. Flying the Jet Provost, Hawk and then the Tornado GR1 operationally, he subsequently qualified as a QWI (Qualified Weapons Instructor). After a short service commission, he joined Air 2000 in early 1990 on the B757 gaining a command after 3 years on the A320. In 1996 he moved to Virgin Atlantic, flying the A343, A346, A320, A330 and A350. Jeremy joined the Human Factors team at Virgin in 2006, and instructed for several years before entering the management team. Over the next 14 years he held a number of positions in the Flight Ops department and was involved in running the Airbus Fleet technically, pastorally and from an IR perspective. His time in the office culminated in being Chief Pilot, Nominated Person Flight Operations, and Deputy Accountable Manager. He retired from flying at the end of 2022, and stepped down from the management role; he now teaches HF and is still involved in projects for the Virgin Flight Operations department, he will also be working as an Associate at Baines-Simmons.
Human Factors is still a passion for him, coupled with a strong belief in a “Just Culture” that should be embedded across both the maritime and aviation sectors.
