Hi, my name is John Boucher and I am the Representative & Key Individual of John Boucher Brokers CC.

I come from a technical background, grew up in Kimberley, attended school at Kimberley Boys Junior (later became known as Kimberley Junior School) and then matriculated at Kimberley Technical High School in 1982, with exemption. I started work at the then Department Posts & Telecommunications in the Data Section and qualified in 1985 as a Technician and hold an Electronics & Telecommunications Technician (N.Dip N6) Diploma. I was one of the youngest Senior Technicians in the Department at the time at the age of 24. I gained valuable experience in Transmission Construction and managed the Postmasburg Carriers, Optic Fibre and Microwave section.

Opting for new challenges, I left Telkom and moved on to the financial sector joining SANLAM as an IT Consultant. This was almost immediately changed and embarked on a career in the Life Assurance industry in 1990 and becoming a Financial Adviser with numerous accolades for excellence, mainly active in the Senior & Professional Market.

In April 1994, I started John Boucher Brokers CC and focused on clients with Engineering Firms, Heavy Earth Moving Contractors and Investment Cast Founders in the Postmasburg area. I uniquely incorporate my technical knowledge and computer expertise to offer my client’s a specialised service.

On a personal note, I acquired my Private Pilot’s License in 2005 which I maintain. My first-hand knowledge of the aviation industry affords me the pleasure of offering my fellow Aviators comprehensive insurance for their aircraft. My family and I moved down to the Garden Route in October 2009 to enjoy a safer environment and to take on new challenges.

I voluntarily serve on the Executive Committee of the Microlight & Light Sport Aeroplane Association of South Africa (MISASA) as Chairman and on the Board of Directors of the Aeroclub of SA.

Locally, I served on the Mossel Bay Aeroclub Committee and as a Director for the Mossel Bay Aero (Pty) Ltd Company for numerous years. I participated in the 2006, 2007, 2009 & 2015 President’s Trophy Air Races as a Navigator and have been part of the organising team for the prestigious MISASA Tedderfield 2012 & 2013 and Kitty Hawk 2014 & 2015 events.

In 2014, I was part of the Sports Aerobatic Club and FAI Officiating Team that managed the YAK-52 and Intermediate World Aerobatic Competition in Mossel Bay, January 2015 Diaz Airshow and Western Cape Regional Aerobatic competitions and performed the role of Ramp Director - Airfield/Airside.

Apart from insatiable love for aviation, I am an adventurous soul, enjoy the outdoor life, a good braai, photography, mountain biking, motorcycling but most of all, my family and close friends!
