Starting his flying career at an early age, Chris had attained his Commercial Pilots License and was conducting Tiger Moth joyflights at the age of just 18. Chris has built over 3000hrs of flight time in a wide array of aircraft, ranging from small Australian designed homebuilts, to state of the art turbines and a wide range of vintage warbirds. Chief Pilot of Skydive Maitland since 2007, Chris has completed over 7000 parachute drops and is well respected as a jump pilot examiner in the region.
Chris and his family own a vintage Beech 18 and since being invited to join the PBA team in 2012, he has taken the opportunity to immerse himself in his passion for both aerobatics and warbirds. A regular on the Australian Airshow scene, Chris can often be found on the flightline, or keeping the show running smoothly as Display Air Boss.
