Angela became passionate about aviation after overcoming an intense fear of flying and now describes herself as an Aviatrix.
In love with all things sky-borne, a highlight of Angela’s aviation journey has been as a member of the winning team in the 2018 and the 2021 Australian Women Pilots’ Association Navigation Trials, bringing home the prestigious ‘Gertie’ Trophy.
Angela’s pilot log-book lists experiences in an R22 Helicopter, Jabiru 160, Victa Airtourer, AESL Airtourer – T6, Gyrocopters, and a crack at the formidable Pitts S2A!
As part of the RAAF Centenary Air Armada organising committee, Angela helped bring together 46 civilian aircraft to join up over Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne and perform a flyover in formation over Point Cook (home of the RAAF) on the 28th March 2021. The event was to celebrate 100 years of the RAAF. The team is now looking to replicate the event for the 2021 Avalon Airshow.
Always willing to #avspeak, Angela lists her top three aircraft as the graceful Douglas DC3, the brutal Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, and the humble Victa Airtourer.
Immersing herself in the aviation community, Angela’s business and project management background, including commissioning the $9.6m Belgrave Hub, and facilitating the sale of Barilla Bay Tasmania, means she brings a wealth of experience to any aviation project or event.
