Head Office Team
Matt NewtonCo-Founder and Chief Pilot
As Chief Pilot and Flying Instructor, I closely monitor our pilots, ensuring they are assigned only to tasks that suite their ability. This minimises risk to our clients but also maximises production.
At PHL you are in good hands. Both Matt and I are from flying blood and we have been involved in aviation from the day we were born.
Excellent customer service combined with attention to detail keeps our clients coming back. My job is to ensure everything we do is correct and we miss nothing!
