SkyDemon wins two Queen’s Awards

Flightplanning and navigation software company SkyDemon has won not one but two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.

Somerset-based SkyDemon is one of only eight winners of two Queen’s Awards, one for innovation and the other for international trade.

The prestigious Queen’s Awards are in their 52nd year. Winners are allowed to use the Awards’ emblem for five years.

Tim Dawson, SkyDemon founder and managing director, said: “Using my software skills to make flying easier and safer was a challenge I set myself when I earned my pilot’s licence 12 years ago.

“We are now the market leaders in this industry in Europe. Today’s announcement of our double Queen’s Award, for innovation and for international trade, is a huge boost for us as a company and goes to show that even the smallest businesses can have the biggest impact.”
