SM Aviation (SMA) was formed in 2001 and is headed by Simon Mathews. He has sold and delivered many aircraft over this time and still enjoys talking to new owners about their aspirations.
In 2019, he relocated the business to Swan Hill in regional Victoria, having identified several opportunities to provide regional businesses a better, more productive aviation solution.
A qualified commercial pilot and flight instructor, he has extensive operational experience in charter, corporate, flight training, aero-medical, demonstration and remote operations. He has worked within dealerships for both Cessna and Daher (formerly SOCATA) as well as having flown for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Flying has taken him to Papua New Guinea, USA , the Pacific, Europe and Asia and he has extensive experience throughout regional and remote Australia. He has ferried aircraft from Europe and made the Pacific crossing in 2004 in a Cessna Caravan.
Mr. Mathews is also a member of Angel Flight, a volunteer organisation which provides free flights to disadvantaged children and their carers travelling to and from medical treatment from regional and remote areas.
It is this rich, diverse flying and business experience plus a willingness to share knowledge that is the hallmark of our customers’ experience.
