Gus Larard, who flies military aircraft in airshows across Australia was our guest for the third branch webinar of 2021.
Nearly 100 members, joined this event. The committee is now looking for the right opportunity to revert back to live lecture or hybrid of live and online.
Meanwhile, Gus shared his experiences in flying and maintaining these wonderful machines and participating in these air displays.
Gus has been a Cathay Pacific Airways captain for 30 years, and currently serves as Director Flight Operations at Air Hong Kong. Gus believes that anyone can achieve their dreams if they set their mind to it, and that a team can achieve their dreams if they trust themselves and their leaders. Gus’s own passion is any form of flying – he has flown fighters in the Royal Australian Air Force, including a stint with the U.S. Navy. As an approved low level display and formation pilot, he has led and flown a variety of warbird aircraft in airshows in Australia and across the USA. As well as functioning as a check and trainer on most Cathay Pacific aircraft types, he is also licensed to fly business jets, helicopters and paragliders, and is a general aviation flying instructor.
