Dickinson approached FlyNonStop's chief, Espen Hennig-Olsen, in the fall of 2013 with a business proposal that offered alternative solutions for the unprofitable airline, based in Kristiansand.
NTB reports, the 56-year-old musician called Hennig-Olsen and said: "We gotta fix this!" The two men had never been spoke or met before.
The proposal came too late after the airline had filed for a 53.7 million kroner bankruptcy on October 29th, 2013. Dickinson learned about the bankruptcy only a few hours after the news was known.
Bruce Dickinson is qualified pilot and also a shareholder in Cardiff Aviation of Wales. He was also involved in an airline company that went bankrupt in 2010.
