Have a Fixed wing PPL. Got into ballooning about 10 years ago crewing for a friend who was working towards their commercial lic. Purchased our balloon in March 2006, with the aim of gaining my commercial licence.
Passed commercial licence Sep 2007 & Class 3 endorsement in March 2008 & was signed off for Class 4 in April 2009 ( I was on a misson). December 2010 was signed off for my Flight instructor endorsement !
October 2011 - Passed my Commercial Flight Instructor Endorsement
The 'A" Team consists of my wife Julia (my Best Friend with the patience of a saint), son Nathan 22 yrs- Design Draftsman, Commercial Balloon pilot and daughter Tegan 20yrs - into all things country & living her travel dream in outback/northern Australia
Have just purchased a brand new Kavanagh D90 ...... its our BOAT !!!!!!!!!!
