Founder of Para Tow NZ.
After 11 years in the sport, I have spent 5 years teaching PG2 and over 6 years as local safety officer. I look at my own progression across many disciplines including acro, SIV and XC and could never have got there without the leadership and direction that came from the experienced pilots around me whilst having regular opportunities to be high over water with a rescue boat. Para Tow NZ is being setup to help pilots have the same opportunities to safely improve their piloting skills.
Ben has been flying since 2015, and is hugely dedicated to the sport. Acro has been a focus for him over the years but doesn't limit himself to just acro, he also keeps busy chasing long xc flights. Ben was quick to put his hand up to be involved with Para Tow NZ wanting to do all he can to help progression and safety training within NZ.
