Team EEI Grows and Grows

Group of men in military uniform stood in front of aircraft.

Paul ‘PT’ Taylor joins us as UAS SME within the Technical Services division of EEI. We asked PT about him, his experience, and what led him to join Team EEI:

“I joined the RAF in 1992 as an Intelligence Analyst serving at RAF Coltishall and Aldergrove until transitioning to become a Weapons Systems Operator and moving to Kinloss in 1999. Flying onboard the Nimrod MR2, Predator MQ-1, Reaper MQ-9, P-8A Poseidon and the RQ-21 Blackjack, I have had a varied and interesting career serving operationally across the Middle East and the Balkans. As well as serving on exchange in the US for nearly 11 years with the USAF, USN and USMC. Since returning to the UK in 2017 I have been based on 56 Sqn at RAF Waddington conducting Test and Evaluation as the Maritime Team Leader to support the Poseidon into the RAF, a role I did in the US on VX-1.

I decided that the time was right to look for new horizons that would allow me to support my family better and I am extremely excited to be starting out again with a company that has rapidly grown in so many different areas with endless new opportunities to grasp. I am lucky to have been able to call Sion a friend since joining up in 1992 when we met on basic training.

Outside of my professional life I enjoy spending time with my family and walking my dog. My interests are mostly sporting related, I am a keen experienced cyclist who has raced (Road, Cyclo-Cross, and Gravel) and I now like to do solo expedition challenges. I raced Triathlon whilst in the US and completed Ironman Texas and Ironman North Carolina. Last year I was a Ride Captain for the Royal British Legion, part of a small team who help support, mentor and motivate the individuals who raise incredible amounts of money for the RBL to ride from Dover to Ypres across the fields of Flanders or from London to Paris.”
