Craig started flight training in January 2008 after the spark was lit in 2007, and it led to him quitting his career in I.T. in early 2009 and taking up flying full time.

By September 2009, he had his PPL and RA Instructor ratings and started working at Lilydale Airport as an RA instructor.

While working at Lilydale, he kept his training going and achieved CPL, GA instructor and instrument ratings, before becoming Lilydale's Chief Pilot, and flyer of all our fleet. He loves the challenge of flying the Mitsubishi MU2 and the thrill of low level flying in his Eurofox, but his favorite plane to fly is the Beech Baron. Craig alternates between instructing and charter work and lives the dream every day.

First Flew

2007, Craig did an introductory flying lesson, having no intentions of learning to fly, but the flying bug bit hard.
