My background is in flight instruction as a pilot in the RAF, the RAAF (Australia) and subsequently with Cathay Pacific Airways. I have also been a Regulator and, for the past 8 years, an academic. I am currently Professor of Aviation & Logistics at the University of Southern Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. This role gives me space for research and consultancy in the areas of EBT and instructor training. I am a Director of The LOSA Collaborative and work with a number of airlines on crew performance and safety change.
