“We will continue to provide strategic solutions for our key customers and partners while increasing our efficiencies and leveraging group synergies across our business.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Magma Aviation for making me feel most welcome from day one, and particularity my thanks to Ross Wilson, Tom Wrigley and Tom Helyar for their leadership and guidance.

“I would also like to pass on my congratulations to Tom Helyar, Magma Aviation chief strategy officer on his appointment to the Magma Board of Directors.”
