But he hired David Ibbotson, 59, to pilot the single-engine Piper Malibu — despite knowing he was not qualified enough.

Ibbotson and Sala, 28, fatally crashed 20 miles off Guernsey in January 2019 after being caught in a storm.

Henderson, of Hotham, East Yorks, was found guilty of endangering the aircraft’s safety at Cardiff crown court last month.

Judge Mr Justice Foxton said Henderson had a “reckless and cavalier” attitude.

An inquest is scheduled for February.
