April 20, 2017:
Harrods Aviation has promoted Dawn Wyatt to head of UK-based VVIP helicopter operator Air Harrods. Wyatt has been with the company since 1997 and previously held posts as operations manager and, since 2012, head of operations.
Prior to starting her 29-year career in the aviation industry, Wyatt's early career was in banking. Working for Westland Helicopters in Battersea as air traffic control assistant, administration manager, and then deputy heliport manager sparked her passion for aviation. This early career saw her gain experience in the daily running of the heliport, customer service, slot allocation, provision of rescue and fire fighting services and air traffic control services.
Wyatt's experience is in VVIP helicopter operations in the UK and Europe, land and yacht-based management of private aircraft, brokerage, pilot services and the commercial aspects of the business.
Paul Norton, managing director of Harrods Aviation and Air Harrods, says: “The time has come to recognise Dawn's tremendous contribution to the management and organisation of Air Harrods. She has unparalleled knowledge of the VVIP helicopter market in management services and the charter market. This long overdue recognition is testament to Dawn's hard work and commitment to the company; I am extremely excited about its future growth during the next few years.”
Based at London Stansted Airport, Air Harrods offers bespoke aircraft services to complement those of Harrods Aviation.
