Aviation has always been a passion of mine. It wasn't until a friend, who is a commercial pilot, asked me to fly a plane back with him from Townsville to the Sunshine Coast, that I realised just how much I loved being behind the controls of an aircraft.
The next week I enrolled to complete my RPC with GoFly Aviation and have never looked back.

Teaching others to fly

Now that I'm an Instructor, I just love seeing the accomplishment on student's faces when they conduct their first takeoff, their first circuit or their first landing. I absolutely love spending time with and teaching students how to fly!


People often ask me where I would rather be. My response is simple: 'at 3,000 feet!'
