Award winning local pilot, George Romeril has joined Isle-fly as their latest pilot. Romeril began his commercial pilot training with Oxford Aviation Academy where he finished top of his section. He completed his commercial training in Arizona before moving to London to enhance his experiences of flying in poor weather.
Jersey-born Romeril started at Isle-fly working in Operations, organising the busy schedules for the company. With the management of Isle-fly being keen to invest in local people and with George’s enthusiasm and passion for flying, it was decided to further support his career path by sending him to Florida to complete his training on the King Air B250GT, one of Isle-Fly’s main aircraft. He is now a First Officer for this particular aircraft.
Paul Sabin, Director of Flight Operations said: “George is a talented young man with a bright flying future ahead of him. We feel very lucky to have him on the team. The airline industry has suffered greatly during the COVID-19 pandemic, however due to the nature of our work as a private air charter, we have continued to be busy with pilots like George flying as far north as the Faroe Islands and as far south as Ibiza, chartering flights to Sion down the Rhone Valley and eleven other European countries”.
Romeril was awarded the Youngest Solo pilot award and the most promising student pilot award at just 17 years old.
George Romeril commented: “I have been obsessed with aviation since I can remember. Growing up in St Ouen meant I was lucky enough to live near to the airport where I used to take the number 9 bus from home to the airport in the summer to meet my instructor Dave Jandron who taught me to fly. It’s a huge achievement for me to work for Isle-fly not just because they are a great company to work for but the experiences I have already had have been life changing”.
