Air Crew

As Air Crew, I am responsible for working with the pilot and my fellow Air Crew or Rescue Crew to conduct scheduled surveillance patrols looking for and taking action in response to different types of coastal hazards. I am responsible for safely dispatching rescue equipment or a Rescue Crew from the helicopter in response to an incident. I am also involved in ensuring we are “rescue ready” at all times in the event of tasking.

I primarily work on the Metro Service.

Favourite WA Beach?

Leighton beach

Favourite holiday destination and why?

Anywhere with snow, I love a winter holiday.

What inspired you to join the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service?

Having completed my first season in the service last year, I was thrilled to be able to come back for another. I look forward to advancing my skills on the aircraft further and continuing to help keep the beaches safe for the WA community.

What motivates you to work for the service and help the community?

Flying up and down the coast seeing all the smiling, happy people on the beach enjoying themselves is all the motivation I need to keep serving the community.

What’s your hidden talent?

Have trained as a Pastry Chef.

Do you have any aspirations in aviation?

No, for me being an aircrew on the Westpac helicopter is as far as I have thought to take my career in aviation

If you were stranded on an island what three things would you bring with you?
