MyHeli is newest UK CAA AOC operator
London Oxford Airport based MyHeli is the UK’s newest helicopter charter operator offering a fleet of six stylishly refurbished Leonardo AW109s.
Founded by renowned aviation entrepreneur Dustin Dryden, the company will form part of Dryden’s Volare Aviation Group. MyHeli’s AOC was awarded by the Civil Aviation Authority at the end of September and the team is now finalising technology to allow users to book its helicopters by app.
Bucking many 2020 trends, Volare Aviation was able to expand its workforce during the pandemic and in March appointed former Flybe Director of Operations, Warren Gravell to the position of CEO and AOC Accountable Manager for both Volare and MyHeli.
MyHeli got its AOC in September. One of six AW109s will shortly be available for charter.
Having worked in all sectors of aviation across five continents, Warren brings 30 years plus of experience in aviation to the business. Warren first worked with Dustin as Director of Operations in International Jet Club from 2012-16 and said of his new role: “Dustin has always been an innovator in the UK aviation space and I’m particularly looking forward to working together again in the dynamic businesses he’s created in Volare and MyHeli”.
From its 16,000 sq ft hangar in London Oxford airport, Volare Aviation specialises in refurbishments and the installation of new avionics on Hawker and Challenger jets, as well as executive helicopters. The company, which employs over 60 people, also runs its own in-house trim facility, engineering training school, charter services and end to end aircraft management.
