UK-based Christophe Simon has been working in the aviation industry for over 20 years, with the majority of his time in sales roles in organisations such as Airbus, Thales and Bombardier/Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
Prior to Heli-One, Simon was with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, formerly Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, in aircraft sales in European markets.

Heli-One, a provider of helicopter MRO services with operations in Canada, Norway and Poland, has added Christophe Simon to its sales and business development team.

“I am excited to commence this new chapter in my career with Heli-One,” he says. “After starting my professional journey on military helicopters two decades ago, I am looking forward to applying my skills and experience with Heli-One, one of the most recognised and trusted names in the business. Heli-One has an extensive product and service offering, and I am looking forward to working with operators and owners to find collaborative solutions.”
