Founders background and contact details


AeroConsort is founded by John Schulmer, born on May 16th, 1958, in Maastricht, the Netherlands.

John studied Mechanical Engineering, was awarded a Bachelors’ degree in 1981.


He joined the Royal Netherlands Air Force and was commisioned Technical Officer in 1982. He had a variety of leadership roles working with the F-104 and F-16 at Volkel Air Base in the Netherlands. In September 1988, John became the Systems Manager for Ground Support Equipment at the Air Material Command in The Hague. Finally, after two years as Manager Computer Centre, Air Tactical Operations in Maas­tricht, John resigned from the Air Force to start a career in industry.


John was chosen from a select group of candidates to join Medtronic; a US based medical device company. He created a new department for supplier quality assurance and was promoted to Supply QA manager. In this position, he successfully sustained FDA inspections, was responsible for managing supplier audits and performed supply logistics in a high-tech and high demanding environment.


In 1997, John shifted his career back into aerospace industry. He joined Fokker Services as the Sales Manager for Fokker’s F-16 business. Not limited to Europe, he explored business worldwide and positioned Fokker in the top of the list for F-16 maintenance & modifications in South America, the Middle East and Asia. In addition, he expanded the business by developing services new to Fokker, such as performing Phase Inspections and supporting Base Maintenance Operations. His intensive and broad support to the RNLAF for their activities related with the sale of surplus F-16 aircraft expanded his business horizon and international network.
