Brad Newfield

I learnt to fly in Christchurch in 2006 and trained for CPL in 2009 in Timaru.

I started working for Glide Omarama as Ground Crew in November 2009. Flew a glider solo in 2009.

I have worked 2 seasons as Crew and 3 as tow pilot. I have 1200 hrs power and 50hrs gliding. I grew up around gliding and mainly enjoy flying in the wave to Mt Cook.

I love living in Omarama year round and enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, particularly skiing in the winter.

1200 Power hours

50 Gliding hours
