Henderson recruited David Ibbotson as a last-minute stand-in to fly the plane.
Striker Sala was on his way to the UK to sign for Cardiff City when the tragedy happened.
The Argentine ace and pilot Mr Ibbotson died when the plane crashed into the water north of Guernsey on January 21, 2019.
Argentinian Sala was much feted ahead of his planned Premier League move.
There was a huge outpouring of grief following his death with thousands of fans leaving tributes at the stadium.
Sala’s body was recovered the following month, but the body of 59-year-old Ibbotson has not been found.Most read in The US SunMOST WANTED Gabby Petito's family think her fiancé is still alive and ‘want vengeance’YEEZUS SCARES Kanye wears creepy mask in Italy as divorce from Kim moves forwardHAUNTING VID New vid of Gabby 'holding hands with fiancé' could give fresh clues in murderFOXY MOVE Brian Austin Green shades Megan Fox with revealing dig as they finalize divorceGLOBAL THREAT China fires hypersonic nuke 'right round the Earth' leaving US reelingso crue-l Moment Motley Crue singer Vince Neil, 60, falls off stage and breaks his ribs
Henderson was originally feared to be on the plane because his bank details had been used to book the flight.
He allegedly recruited Mr Ibbotson for return flights that weekend heading to and from France both with Sala on board.
He flew from Cardiff on January 18 before the fatal flight from Nantes on January 21.
Henderson had been charged under the Air Navigation Order (2016).
He is also accused of attempting to discharge a passenger.
Henderson, of the East Riding of Yorkshire, will face a two-week trial in front of a High Court Judge in the prosecution brought by the Civil Aviation Authority.3Footage showed the wreckage of the plane on the bed of the English ChannelCredit: PA
