Steve Couchman

A Kiwi who trained as a pilot in Australia in 1995, Steve initially worked in Australia in tourism (scenic flights), stock mustering, gas pipeline patrolling and oil rig support. On returning to New Zealand he was employed by NEST for five years before returning to Australia to once again fly oil rig support. Auckland was the next port of call for a two and a half year stint with the rescue helicopter there, finally returning to NEST in 2009.
