A key moment in the life of Wings!
Two people met on 31 October 2006 at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London. Adrian Nance met Nigel Watson the CEO of Luviair and HeliRiviera.
They discussed how best to speed helicopters to disasters in Africa. They met again in UK and in the south of France.
A breeze under our young wings
As a result, Luviair funded Wings Like Eagles’ first website and introduced us to Roger Day. Roger built that site and a wrote an on-line brochure for us. His work is hugely appreciated.
Less obviously, Nigel helped with the training of Adrian in civil aviation after their naval experience. In addition the Board of Luviair continues to help Wings through the long fight out of the global recession. This help allows us to grow and to anticipate disasters by building financial reserves. A steady breeze that has helped to lift us up.
Supporting Wings’ aim
All this is with one aim: to deliver a rapid response disaster relief capability to help the people of southern Africa.
As Heli-Riveira and Luviair procure and operate helicopters world wide. They are a very good fit for us.
