The Commander is Retiring!

Philip and Duncan AlbertvilleIt’s difficult to believe but Philip Sheldon, our founder and mentor, has decided to retire at the end of September 2014.

After a distinguished career in the Royal Navy, Philip was instrumental in establishing sales of the Robinson R22 in its earliest days in the 1980’s. In the 1990’s he founded Cambridge Helicopters which later rebranded as Aeromega Helicopters.

From the outset, it was his objective to provide the highest possible standard of helicopter training to both private and commercial pilots.  His desire to do things properly and ensure students are well prepared for all eventualities has led to a great many licence holders enjoying some wonderful rotary opportunities.

This ethos is still strong in the flying school today and it is a matter of pride to us that our customers and former students benefit from having been trained at Aeromega under Philip’s influence.  As a senior panel examiner, his contribution to the helicopter training industry has been highly significant and a great many instructors and commercial pilots owe a great deal to his input.  We hope that you will join us in wishing him all the best for the future.

Those wishing to send retirement wishes may do so by email to or through our facebook page or even in person.  Any contributions to his retirement gift are welcome – we can process a debit card transaction if you are not able to call in personally.
