On behalf of the ATSB’s Commission and staff, we welcome the appointment of Mr Peter Wilson as our Aviation Commissioner.
Mr Wilson certainly has an impressive aviation pedigree, commencing his professional piloting career with Qantas in 1985. Over the following 20 years, Mr Wilson held a number of key senior management appointments including Senior Check Captain Boeing 767, General Manager of Boeing 767 Operations and General Manager of Airbus A330 Operations.
Mr Wilson also held the senior executive appointments as Qantas’s Chief Pilot and Chief Operating Officer.
Since retiring from flying, Mr Wilson has worked as a professional consultant, served as the interim CEO and Chief Operating Officer of Tigerair and held other senior executive appointments more broadly.
We look forward to onboarding Mr Wilson over the coming days.
