The court heard that flight organizer David Henderson took “reckless and dangerous” actions in organizing flights with Emiliano Sala.
Prosecutors said Henderson had hired a pilot who was not qualified to travel.
Both Sarah and pilot David Eve Totson died when the plane crashed in January 2019.
Henderson was going to take control of the plane, but his vacation in France meant he couldn’t, and Ibotson boarded the plane instead.
“We’ve always said that the flight we make is rewarding and everyone has to get on the ball, which is a steep learning curve for those unfamiliar with surgery,” Henderson said in court. ..
“The prerequisite is the willingness to listen and learn. We have the opportunity to make money from our business model, but not if we upset our clients or get the attention of the CAA. [Civil Aviation Authority]… as the only self-employed traders, we have debtors and creditors. You certainly understand that you can’t make money in advance to stay legal. “
The court heard that Henderson “ignored certain requirements” and that the flight was not “operated and organized out of love for Emiliano Sala or Cardiff City football clubs” but because of business requirements.
