Pilots Ground Crew

Meet the @Altitude Team

Jeremy Rowsell’s support team is led by three friends and like-minded souls. Come early 2013, they are going to put Jeremy in a plastic-fuelled plane and send him halfway around the world.


Tony Loughran is his international risk and survival specialist. Tony, an ex Special Forces operative and ex Head of BBC's International High Risk Team, turned survival expert and international risk advisor will cover everything from Jeremy’s endurance and critical decision training, to providing the specialised international security that this challenge will require.


Richard Peel is his media savvy expert. Based in London he will focus on the media interplay worldwide. Richard’s wealth of experience from Corporate Affairs Directorships and key communication roles in the Media, Broadcast, Sport, Local Government, Health and Gaming sectors,  will ensure that the strategic communications, reputation and crisis management and public relations for the project and team are harnessed.
