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?

City Beach

Favourite holiday destination and why?

Rottnest Island.  It’s local and it’s a water sports mecca.

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

I have always been interested in aviation and jumped at the opportunity to do more than just life saving patrols on the beach – a great way to mix both!

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

I find it really rewarding to ensure that the coast is a safer place for the community and by helping people when they need assistance.

What’s your hidden talent?

Motorcycle racing.

Do you have any aspirations in aviation?

I’m currently training to be a pilot also.

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

A Swiss army knife, a crate of matches, and a hammock.
