Shona Bowman: Chairman
Shona has been involved with Aerobility since its humble beginnings, when we had just one aeroplane but lots of keen and enthusiastic Flyers and volunteers. She helped with setting up the flying training side of our charity and was previously our Chief Flying Instructor. As a Trustee she now helps to oversee the flying operation and brings with her a wealth of experience.
Shona works as a commercial airline pilot but is still very much involved with the General Aviation world and is much happier when flying a 'real aeroplane' than a 'boring airliner'! As an instructor and glider pilot she has a valuable understanding of operations.
Coming firmly from a family of aviators, Shona has been flying solo since she was at school, and in fact had her PPL before her driving licence. Shona is also the proud mum of two future aviators in daughter Isla and son Ellis, who are always keen to get involved.
