Nicholas Combes

Raised in South Africa, educated in the United Kingdom and currently working in South Florida. Aviation has always played a significant part in my life.

In 2013 I moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a degree in Aviation.

From 2014 – 2016 I was a Midshipman in The Royal Navy and served aboard HMS Biter and HMS Lancaster with Manchester and Salford’s University Unit. I undertook flight safety training at RNAS Culdrose and participated in helicopter OPS at RAF Shawbury.

In 2016 I published a dissertation concerning the impact of UAV operations on flight safety. I subsequently graduated from the Salford University in Manchester, with a BSc (Hons) in Aviation Technology with Pilot Studies.

I have several years experience working within the aviation sector and am currently a private jet broker for a successful London based firm.
