Matt has always wanted to run his own business and in September 2015 he took voluntary redundancy following a 5 year stretch servicing the oil and gas sector over the North Sea from Aberdeen. His goal is to share his passion and knowledge of rotary flight having gained this through many different roles ranging from Air Ambulance in Saudi Arabia to oil and gas offshore over the North Sea.
Speaking to Matt about launching his new business he said “It was extremely important for us to secure a good location for the business and Doncaster fast became our number one choice. Owning your own business is great but also the most terrifying, but with the ongoing help and support we receive from the Business Doncaster team, we feel we can achieve our goals”.
“We intend to have an Air Operations Certificate in place in the future which will allow us to provide Charter services such as wedding hire, school prom events and tours…to name a few” he added.
