David “Andy” Gibbs was the driving force behind establishing HRH in 2005. But Andy’s passion for flying combined with his diverse background in real estate, property management, and construction made him a success right from his start in the aviation business in the early 1990’s.
He started and grew Hampton Roads Charter Service into a Part 135 Charter Operator and Robinson Helicopter Service Center and Dealership. In 2000, Andy expanded his aviation interests to include becoming a part owner of the Hampton Roads Executive Airport and he helped guide the airport to becoming a premier regional airport.
While Andy’s passing in February of 2013 saddened everyone that knew him, his entrepreneurial spirit still drives us all here at HRH to be the best at what we do. His wife Sandie and his two boys Drew and Jake continue to carry on Andy’s legacy at HRH.
