Bristow Helicopters Ltd. has appointed Ian Taylor as the company’s new quality and safety manager for its European business unit.

With more than 20 years experience in the aviation industry, Taylor joins Bristow from its affiliate group FB Heliservices Ltd (FBH) where he held the same role. Taylor will relocate from Dubai to the company’s Aberdeen office.

“Bristow is renowned for being an industry leader in safety and innovation,” said Mike Imlach, director of European operations at Bristow. “Ian brings a great wealth of health and safety knowledge and experience to the table, and he will play a pivotal role in enabling Bristow to continue to champion safety in the aviation industry as well as drive forward our Target Zero initiative.”

Taylor’s career began in 1992, joining the Royal Navy as an Aircraft Engineer with the Sea King Commando Helicopter Squadrons. His last role within the service was at the Flight Safety Accident Investigation Centre where he assisted in aircraft accident investigation and flight safety initiatives including assisting with the publication of Cockpit, the flight safety magazine.

Prior to joining FBH in 2006, Taylor obtained a law degree from the University of Durham with a focus on aviation law, while continuing to carry out quality assurance and safety work for a range of companies within the aviation industry.

“Safety is at the heart of Bristow’s culture and fundamental to its operations,” Taylor said. “I am looking forward to being part of such a safety conscious team and capitalising on the hard work that has already been invested in Bristow’s global Target Zero initiative.

“I will be dedicated to helping the organisation achieve the objectives of zero accidents, zero downtime and zero complaints,” he said.
