Michael Thomson
Michael ThomsonApplication Support Analyst

It is with sadness that we bid farewell to Application Support Analyst, Mike Thomson,
who has decided to return to university to further his studies in mechanical engineering.

In the three years that he spent with Cairn, Mike added immense value to the company.
Apart from excelling in a primary role of tech support, he was instrumental in the
development and improvement of our internal procedures, contributed significantly to the development and testing of Air Maestro, and spent many hours building Cairn’s website
and optimising our online and social media presence.

Mike’s resignation is effective on 31 March 2021. We wish him great success in his
studies and thank him for his hard work and dedication during his time with Cairn

Our support channels remain the same, we intend to make this transition as seamless as possible for our customers. Mike will be handing his cellphone number to Ilette at the end of his notice period so you don’t need to change any contacts in your phone.

If you have any queries about how this will affect the customer support provided to you by Cairn Aviation, please feel free to contact our helpdesk.
