About HeliTramp

12 Years in the Royal Australian Navy led me into the commercial aviation arena where I exercised the privileges of my Airline Transport Licences in Helicopters and Airplanes conducting interesting operations throughout Australia, Papua New Guinea, Middle East, Iran, South Africa, Sudan, Equatorial Guinea and the US.
