MIAMI – Faradair has revealed via a press release the hiring of OEM and airline industry titans Randy Tinseth and Tony Anderson. These main figures are planned to help Faradair advance the progress of its BioElectric Hybrid Aircraft (BEHA).
The company is currently developing a hybrid-electric aircraft concept that solves three core problems hindering regional flight growth: operation costs, emissions, and noise.
Faradair has appointed Randy Tinseth, longtime Vice President Marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes, as the current Chairman of Faradair Aerospace Limited’s Advisory Panel. Also, Tony Anderson, a retired easyJet (U2) executive, and the airline’s third employee embarked on the Board.
As such, both executives have a rich background in the commercial aircraft industry from leading companies and will provide useful insight into the future business model of Faradair and its development. The firm will confirm these appointments before forthcoming decisions by the Management and Engineering team.
Comments from Randy Tinseth
Randy Tinseth said of the new role, “I am both honored and excited to join the Advisory Board for Faradair as they develop, design, and bring to market the world’s most ‘environmental’ aircraft. This Bio Electric Hybrid Aircraft will bring a unique combination of size, range, efficiency, and environmental performance to the market. With its unique capabilities, I believe the BEHA can truly transform regional air mobility in the next decade.”
Randy Tinseth has almost 40 years of aviation experience, the last 13 at Boeing. He has also acted as a prominent Boeing spokeswoman, delivering highlight addresses at the world’s most influential aviation conventions and air shows.
Comments from Tony Anderson
On his part, Tony Anderson commented, “I have always been an optimist. The post-pandemic challenges facing the aviation industry may seem daunting, but the future belongs to visionary companies that genuinely innovate and lead.”
Anderson added, “I am delighted to have the opportunity to join the Advisory Board of Faradair Aerospace. I look forward to playing a part in making the BEHA the success I firmly believe it can be.”
Tony Anderson joined U2 in 1995 as a core member of the start-up committee reporting to owner Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou. Later, as the easyGroup’s director of marketing, he founded new companies under the easy brand.
The executive, still an easyGroup advisor, has worked in branding for British Airways (BA), Thomas Cook, and Kantar TNS. A conference speaker, Anderson has tutored at the Imperial College Business School for the past ten years.

Faradair founder and CEO Neil Cloughley said, “I have known Randy for many years and I am delighted to have him join us on our journey. He saw the commercial aircraft sector from many angles during his Boeing career and his advice and guidance as we expand will be invaluable.”
“Obtaining the endorsement and engagement of two prominent aerospace professionals is exciting and we are delighted that Randy and Tony share our vision. Tony was among the pioneers of the low-cost air travel. Having him guide us as we look to disrupt the regional air travel market, is invaluable.”
