Stephen brings 25 years of experience in civil aviation sales to Savback. Following 12 years’ service in the Royal Air Force, he began a career in helicopter sales, specialising in transacting Robinson and Leonardo Helicopters. This included 17 years with Sloane Helicopters. Following this, Stephen gained experience in both business jet and commercial airline sales in cooperation with Aura Aviation and JetBrokers Inc. With an additional seven years of experience in the primary aviation markets, he brings a deep understanding of how the fixed wing and rotary markets complement each other.

“Savback Helicopters has an impressive history with many years’ experience selling new and pre-owned helicopters globally and I am excited to join the team. The recent announcement of Savback’s new, UK-based customer facility and its appointment as sole distributor for new production helicopters covering the UK regions makes it a formidable presence in the UK,” said Stephen Mitchell.



“We are very proud to add such a well-known name to the team. Stephen’s experience and impressive background from both helicopter and fixed wing sales, will be truly valuable for the company and its long-term expansion plans. This addition allows us to build an even more solid foundation in the UK and Ireland,” said Reja Savbäck (above), CEO, Savback Helicopters.
