DRONAMICS has announced the expansion of its European Operations team. Based in Malta, the team is focused on preparing the ground for DRONAMICS’ first commercial flights this year. The European operation opened with Ruth Sawers, Director of Operations. Ruth’s background is in specialized recruitment in the oil, gas and aviation sectors. She is also the President and Founder of the Women in Aviation Networking Group in Malta and is a passionate advocate of diversity in the workplace.

Kenneth Chircop, former CEO of Malta Air Traffic Services (Malta’s Air Navigation Service Provider), joins as Director, Global Network Operations Center. Kenneth has authored several peer-reviewed publications in aviation engineering and is also resident academic at the University of Malta’s Institute of Aerospace Technologies and the Department of Electronic Systems Engineering.

Martha Romero is the newly appointed Director of Safety, Quality and Compliance. Martha’s experience in commercial aviation, having worked with Monarch Airlines and Norwegian Air in the UK, will be key as DRONAMICS sets to expand connectivity across its European network.

Julian Scicluna joins as Director of Flight Operations. With over 16,000 hours of flight time, his experience as a pilot includes Air Malta and Hong Kong Dragon Airlines aka Dragonair. After earning a Captain title, Julian also gained valuable experience as a Training Captain on the A330.

Finally, Joao Jordao completes the team as Director of Maintenance and Airworthiness. As a former NetJets as well as Emirates Engineering lead, Joao brings a deep understanding of aircraft maintenance processes. 

The varied and extensive experience that the team brings will boost DRONAMICS’ position as it prepares for its demonstration, followed by first commercial flights from Malta, the company’s European Operations base.

”The regulatory, operational and flying expertise that our complete team brings puts us in a strong position to fulfill our ambitions for 2022 and beyond. As our first European operations base, Malta will play a key role in establishing our commercial capabilities across Europe.” – said Sergio Oliveira e Silva, Chief Operating Officer of DRONAMICS
