Catherine Pardini – Managing Director
Catherine has been working for HeliRiviera almost 20 years, beginning as the Personal Assistant to the founder & owner, to Office Manager until she became Managing Director in 2010.
She has been a part of the aeronautical world for over 30 years. In her earlier years, she worked at Air Jet & Air France as a station agent. She then became a flight attendant for domestic and long-haul flights at Corsair International, where she always ensured the highest level of safety and provided exceptional individualised service for her passengers.
A few years spent working in different jet charter companies offered her networking opportunities in the business aviation sector, including air charter operators, brokers and private jet companies.
Through an active interest in travelling, she has gained a rich and cultured experience. Catherine is French and also speaks English & Italian; she has an interest in general psychology and oenology.
Music is also a real and great passion. She enjoys spending time with her husband and their son playing drums, guitar and key board in different live bands.
She thinks the best gift she has been given are her kids, Candice & Jules.
