Meet the Pilot

John French

Chief Pilot

Frenchy
Better known as Frenchy, John is our Chief Pilot and is responsible for the company’s day to day flying operations. He knows the Kimberley like the back of his hand, having logged 10,000 hours in nearly 30 years. That’s a lot of flying! Frenchy started out mustering in aeroplanes in the early Eighties, then switched to choppers and has since clocked up many hours conducting fire incendiary, sling loading, feral animal control, surveys, and medivac operations, plus countless hours of flying very happy tourists around the Kimberley. In his spare time, you’ll find Frenchy fixing cars and machinery or out and about in the Kimberley with his family.
