HeliOperations is delighted to welcome Vice Admiral Sir Alan Massey as Chairman of the HeliOps Board of Directors. Sir Alan has a strong background in maritime operations, maritime aviation, search and rescue, risk management, and safety regulation. In his 33-year Royal Navy career he commanded two aircraft carriers on combat operations and served for 5-years on the Navy and Admiralty Boards. Following his final RN appointment as Second Sea Lord and Commander-in-Chief, Naval Home Command, Sir Alan spent 8-years as Chief Executive Officer to the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency, where he modernised the UK’s Coastguard service, and transformed the MCA’s regulatory regime.
HeliOps’ CEO Steve Gladston said, “Sir Alan’s wealth of experience in maritime aviation and safety regulation, coupled with his previous role on the Navy Board, makes him a hugely valuable addition to the Board of HeliOperations as its Chairman. He will play an important role implementing the Company’s growth-strategy by continuing to secure UK and overseas civil and military aviation and flying training contracts”.
