"Mac is a highly educated and talented person, which is a very good balance of personal qualities. His experience and knowledge on the Global Vision and in aviation in general is huge, he knows every little details and he always gets the very new information and updates. He is assertive and maintain a clear mind in high workload environments and while troubleshooting, he is also very good to set priorities properly. His flying is accurate and smooth."
"Mac remains a very professional and excellent Global Contract pilot and I would always support his use if you so require in this region."
"Austin, always proved to be a very good asset for our operation. He is very knowledgeable, and extremely experienced, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to any employer, and despite this he also a very pleasant person to work with, and to share time on layover."
"Mr. Porter has helped our organisation many, many times in operational, logistical and technical areas. As a highly experienced aviator he has been a mentor to a number of our pilots, new to the Global and Challenger aircraft, in a low key, yet highly professional manner. He has helped out with flying client aircraft when we were really stuck due to crew member absence. He has always been there for our company, without fuss, but with lots of enthusiasm. I would not hesitate in recommending Mr. Porter in any role, aviation or otherwise that needs a professional outlook, with fine people skills and high motivation to achieve any target or goals."
"Austin is a highly regarded and experienced pilot who takes great pride in what he does and how he does it. This was readily apparent when, as Bombardier’s Hong Kong-based Customer Liaison Pilot, he assisted Metrojet Limited in the introduction and operation of its Global Express and Challenger fleet. Subsequent to that I consulted and relied heavily on Austin’s experience and assistance during the development and implementation of Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for our Challenger 605 executive business jets. I have very high regard for Austin and consider him a good friend."
