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?

North beach, my local

Favourite holiday destination and why?

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

The opportunity to work with Tim, Kristen & Emile, and the alignment the service has with my current job. My primary job is Helicopter Underwater Escape Training which is another service that values helping the community.

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

Keeping people safe on our beautiful WA coastline give me a great sense of contribution to the community and also you should see the view from up there!

What’s your hidden talent?

Not too sure that I have any.

Do you have any aspirations in aviation?

Continue to work as a crewman and work up to a level 2.

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

My Surf Ski to get off, a couple of books to relax and my wife said she has to be the third, I have to take her.
