Skyborne promotes Carla to new role

Gloucestershire-based Skyborne Airline Academy has promoted Carla Booth to group head of airline business as it seeks to boost airline relationships.

The new position will see Carla responsible for growing the academy's relationships with key global airlines.

Based at Gloucestershire Airport and Vero Beach, Florida, Skyborne Airline Academy is a modern airline training academy which brings a fresh approach to airline pilot training.

In her new role, Carla, who joined Skyborne as head of recruitment in early 2019, will be tasked with building airline pathways for prospective Skyborne trainees, alongside customer support and pilot selection.

Lee Woodward, CEO, Skyborne, said: "Carla has been an indispensable member of our team over the last four years, demonstrating her ability to build relationships and identify opportunities for Skyborne. We're pleased to be able to recognise her efforts and create a new job role that will offer her even greater scope to expand our business and forge partnerships with airlines and trainees."

Carla has extensive aviation experience and was head of airline careers at L3Harris Commercial Aviation prior to joining Skyborne. Before this, she spent eight years at CTC Aviation Training as selection manager.

Carla said: "The aviation sector will benefit significantly from drawing on the widest possible pool of talent and Skyborne has a vital role to play.

"I'm looking forward to enjoying even greater opportunities to build upon my existing relationships with airlines in Europe and the US, helping our trainees to have a competitive edge against their peers and becoming First Officers with leading airlines around the world."
