I enrolled in Moorabbin Flying Service's Cert IV in Aviation after leaving Scotch College, VIC in 2014, aged 18. The course was part-time and during my first year, I was able to complete all my CPL theory and the majority of flying required for my PPL. I attained my PPL at the beginning of 2016, I then chose to focus on further aviation studies for a few months.
In the latter stages of 2016, I gained my Multi-Engine Endorsement before completing my CPL & NVFR in early 2017.
In October 2017, I began my Instructor Rating Training at MFS and completed that in December of that year.
During my time at MFS, I was presented with the 'Award for Recognition of Overall Excellence' in 2017 and was 'Highly Commended in the Category of the Endeavor Award' in 2016.

MFS had a fleet of Piper Warriors, Archers and Seminoles, with all three models being fitted with analogue and glass instruments.

After instructing at AAPA for roughly 8 months, I attained the required hours to conduct my Grade 2 instructor upgrade. This enabled me to begin conducting both First Solo and Navigation checks for students.

Following this, I completed my Multi-Engine Instrument Rating towards the end of 2019. The course allowed me to both expand and refine my current flying skills while supervising students conducting ICUS flights under the IFR.
In November 2019, I undertook my Instrument Rating Training Approval with Guy Pearson from Australian Flight Examiners. A few months later, in February 2020, I completed my Multi-Engine Training Approval with AAPA. Since early 2020, I have been able to teach all the lessons AAPA provides, from first solo through to MECIR & CPL pre-licences.

After being advised by many mentors, I concentrated on completing all my theory as soon as possible. While at the time, I thought the task of completing my ATPL's would be difficult, I underestimated just how large the leap is between CPL theory and that for the airlines. Nonetheless, I was able to complete all 7 subjects in just over year while completing my CPL flying at the same time. Looking back, I am grateful I took their advice and was able to complete the subjects with limited practical experience.
