Welcome aboard our privately charted Qantas Boeing 747 aircraft – to many pilots the 747 is the ‘Queen of the Skies’. I can’t tell you what a privilege it is for me to be in Command of such a beautiful aircraft andwonderful crew. The people behind Constellation Journeys and my team at Qantas look forward to flying you to some incredible destinations Around the World. Along the way you’ll see iconic sights, encounter incredible ancient cultures and befriend a wonderful group of fellow travellers.
I’ve recently celebrated 30 years of flying with Qantas. I’m just as excited about flying and aeroplanes today as I was when I joined this iconic Australian airline all those years ago. My current position is the Head of Fleet Operations, where I am responsible for the day to day operations of all Qantas aircraft – as well as flying 747s across the world of course! Joining me in the flight deck will be two other very experienced and professional Qantas Captains. While we’re flying the aircraft you’ll be serviced by the best of the best of our cabin crew.
So please sit back, relax and let Constellation Journeys and my Qantas team take you to some of the most exotic places on earth!
