Ben started Learn 2 Fly in November 2018 to fulfil his passion of getting pilots started on their journey. His vision was for a training organisation that produces job ready pilots who have learned the actual skills they need, to be employable in the industry upon completion. As an experienced operator he seeks to use innovation and aircraft types that are used in typical first jobs. Quality, Safety and Service are at the core of this vision. He did not attempt to be the cheapest school, rather the school that you choose that is organised, high quality and has good aircraft that are well equipped and maintained.
Ben is an ex-army helicopter pilot with over 4000 hours. When he can get away from Learn 2 Fly he also does fire-fighting and industrial operations. His partner company 18fifty3 is a proudly Indigenous owned and run project management organisation.
