As well as his role as a company pilot, James is the training captain at Glenorchy Air, helps with maintenance planning and is also our CAA flight examiner. James is passionate about all things aviation and can usually be found learning about, talking about or flying planes. When not at work he is exploring the South Island or at home spending time with his lovely wife Kirstin and daughter Piper.
Megan has been flying locally since the early 2000's amongst the mountains of Queenstown and Milford Sound. Outside of work, she enjoys travelling, biking and skiing and being at home in Wanaka with her wee dog Freddy. You'll find her this summer flying our gorgeous new Cessna Grand Caravan EX!
Joe grew up just outside of London but decided to make the move over to New Zealand in January 2018 and landed in Queenstown in March. In winter you'll find him up the mountains and in summer playing frisbee golf! All year round he will be annoying colleagues with his terrible sense of humour.
Michaela moved to Queenstown in 2017 having fallen in love with the mountains, the lakes, the coastline and the kiwi spirit whilst here on holiday. Her passion for aviation comes from time spent working for private jets and commercial airlines both on the ground and in the air in the UK. When she’s not at work she’ll likely be found out hiking or frequenting Perky’s floating bar.
Will is our Queenstown local and has been flying in the area since 2003 and will be happy to share his knowledge and local secrets.
Jim's our American refugee. He came to NZ in 2005 and decided to stay. When asked about living in New Zealand, he jokes that "I came over for just a three month flying job... It's been a long three months".
Originally from Motueka, Liam completed a Chemistry degree in Dunedin at Otago University before deciding flying was more his style. He became a flight instructor in Wanaka before joining the team here. In his spare time he enjoys all outdoor activities in particular white water kayaking.
