Andy Wilson

Technical Director, SME

Andy started his working life as an apprentice engineer with Hellmann Electric. He studied mechanical and electrical engineering, hydraulics and pneumatics and finished his time with Hellmann in the special product development department. 
When the company relocated, Andy worked as a development engineer for a small specialized company for a brief period before joining Rediffusion Simulation. 

Andy’s career at Rediffusion, Hughes, TTS, Thales spanned 21 years working in multiple aspects of the business before being promoted to the position of visual production & installation manager. 

On leaving Thales he applied his knowledge to designing and developing fiberglass & carbon fibre racing hulls before joining Rotran Simulator logistics as the Programs Director. There he planned, managed, and executed over 250 flight simulator relocations across the world. 

In 2007 Andy joined Q4 Services where he opened the UK office as one of the founding members. He was instrumental in the design and development of the SupraVue and DirectVue visual system and back projection screen product lines, along with visual system modification and upgrades where he was the engineering Director SME for their collimation product line and device relocation services. He quickly became the “go to person” for product integration and manufacturing questions. When Q4 consolidated its operation into the USA, Andy retired and decided to put his decades of experience in the industry to good use and set up AW Flight Simulation Services.
