As Operations Director Ed Clay is responsible for our flying programme and works closely with our customers’ operational teams and the Civil Aviation Authority.

Ed started his career in strategy consulting, completing a diverse range of projects in industries from government to automotive and energy. He then got the start-up bug and was Operations Director at award-winning AI and virtual reality company Metail, driven by its focus on creating smarter, more sustainable ways to shop for clothes online.

Outside work Ed is a keen sailor who particularly enjoys exploring more remote places. He has taken his boat from the heat of Gambia to the ice of Greenland – though now with two young children he doesn’t get much further than the nearest beach.
