SM Aviation (SMA) was formed in 2001 and is headed by Simon Mathews. He has sold and delivered many aircraft over this time and always enjoys talking to business owners about their aspirations.
In early 2019 he relocated the business to Swan Hill in regional Victoria, having identified new opportunities to provide regional business an innovative, more efficient and productive travel solution.
A 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 flying a Cessna Grand Caravan.
Mr. Mathews is also a member of Angel Flight, a volunteer organisation which provides free flights for disadvantaged children and their carers, to and from distant medical treatment.
It is this rich, diverse flying and business experience, plus a willingness to share knowledge that is the hallmark of our customers’ experience.
