RidgeAir was formed in 2007 by Marlborough businessman Norm Clifford and has, for some years, been fronted by chief pilot Ross McCullum. Ross has been flying for the last 20 years and holds an Airline Transport Licence with in excess of 10,000 hours flying time on. Before joining RidgeAir he had had 10 years as an airline pilot with a regional airline in Australia on SAAB 340s and Metroliners. The company is based at Blenheim’s Omaka airfield but also operates from the larger Woodbourne airport.
