New recruits for Skybus

Simon Williams and Emily Bliss

Cornwall’s longest-serving airline Skybus has recruited two new pilots and promoted two others to fly to the Isles of Scilly.

Simon Williams previously worked as a paramedic and pilot for Cornwall Air Ambulance, while Emily Bliss, at 26, is one of the youngest pilots working for Skybus.

In addition, Skybus has promoted two of its longer standing first officers, Ian Parsons and Mike Ryan-Fecitt, to become captains of the Skybus Islanders.

Skybus has been operating flights to the Isles of Scilly for over 25 years. The airline operates six aircraft, three De Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otters and three Britten Norman Islanders.
