Now the Assistant Editor with AviationSource, I have almost 40 years' experience in aviation, starting in Australian flight crew and training. I worked as CFI/Chief Pilot with 2 organisations and was also a CASA approved testing officer and aeronautics lecturer. This led to components procurement for civil operators and the RAAF, and then maintenance programming with a global airborne geo-survey operator.
What is your favourite aeroplane?
The Cessna 402, a machine I grew to love doing single pilot charter ops into remote minesites.
What was your first Aviation interest?
As a kid, I was fascinated with the wartime stories of Douglas Bader and Guy Gibson and decided I wanted to become a pilot.
What is your favourite aspect of Aviation?
Aviation has been a lifestyle and a lifelong love affair for me, and I’ve now had the opportunity to experience many aspects of it. Almost 4 decades later, I still love it!
