I have been flying helicopters for the past 24 years. The first 8 years of my career was spent flying single engine helicopters throughout New Zealand. The past 14 years I have worked for two major international operators in the capacity of a multi engine check and training captain.
I hold both single engine and multi engine flight examiner ratings for New Zealand and Australia and have managed several bases both VFR and IFR.
Having a share in Helicopters Nelson gives me an opportunity to expand areas I have a passion for such as hunting and fishing along with the expanding Heli mountain bike market.
I’m enjoying the change from flying medium multi engine helicopters and getting back to grass roots instructing with our ab initio students.
