Neil was a former RNZAF Engineer who retired as a Group Captain before moving to Australia where he held a number of programme director roles with the Australian Aerospace and Airbus Group South Pacific companies
Again as programme director, he leads the air domain capability delivery at the NZ MoD responsible for new aircraft acquisition programmes for the RNZAF, including - P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft - Future Tactical Air Mobility and others
The Branch is looking forward to this important update.
