People: Will


I got my skills very early in life and never looked back. A lot of people in my line of work are ex-military, but I was trained and worked as a civilian all of my life. It’s funny when I was at school all the advice I got was about getting a ‘good’ job with a ‘reputable company’. What they meant was ‘large’.

I’ve never worked for a large company. Well, unless you call 30 people large. I’ve worked for myself and for others … in construction, emergency services, tourism, deliveries and seen the world while I was at it.

Papua New Guinea … only after their independence (I’m not that old!), up in Canada, down in Australia and New Zealand …. I pretty much work wherever the next phone call takes me.

Me? Oh, I fly helicopters.

Will never had ‘pilot’ on his ‘what I will do when I grow up’ childhood list, but he’s never regretted it. “What else would I do?” he asked.

“As long as you live, keep learning how to live.”
