My home country is kind of amazing – and it’s even more amazing from the air. When I turned 21, I was in the process of completing my Private Pilot’s License. To celebrate both my 21st birthday and the completion of my PPL, I flew the length of New Zealand and landed at 21 airfields. I flew with flying friend and experience Commercial Pilot Tony Petch and, in an accompanying aircraft, my brother and father flew the journey too.

We landed at Milford Sound – one of the most magical moments of my life.
