Director - Operations
Colin Wright has an aviation career spanning nearly 40 years and still finds the industry exciting and full of new challenges. He is a co-founder of Jersey Jet Centre which actively delivers supports to all aspects of the corporate and general aviation market within and outside the Channel Islands.
Growing up in Jersey, he joined the start-up operations department at Jersey based Air Atlantique, a well-known and respected local airline, with whom significant experience was gained over the next twenty years in all aspects of aviation administration and management, including hands-on knowledge of Operations, Maintenance and Finance.
In that time, the Atlantic Group grew from a small fleet of 5 aircraft to nearly 60 aircraft with its own full coverage maintenance base and associated training centre covering all forms of flying from scheduled passenger operations, cargo flights, aerial work and corporate aircraft management. Directly involved with that growth, Colin held many challenging management positions in different departments ultimately as Managing Director.
In 1995, Colin purchased a large shareholding in Segers Aviation, originally a small agency operation for US based aerospace corporations in Europe. Through hard work and growth management over 20 years, Segers Group with its subsidiaries now offers OEM approved maintenance organisations, performance based programmes and aircraft leasing to the worldwide aviation market with long established bases in USA, UK, Dubai, Singapore and South Africa.
