Involved in commercial aviation since 1966 most of my circa 24,000 hours have been accrued in management and the training of pilots on three continents. Starting off on Auster and DH82 aircraft, I believe the basics thus learned have stood me by in an incident free career. I can proudly say that none of my protégés have been involved in any major incidents, although regrettably two were killed over the Sudan, having been shot in separate incidents. My interest in ProAviation.com.au, as publisher and contributor, has been to foster aviation in Australia which mainly at the hands of Government and CASA has seen a drastic decline at a time when it could be a leader in providing trained pilots globally.
