Steve Pemberton is an Aussie seaplane pilot with years of seaplane experience. Mostly flying and instructing on the Twin Otters in the Maldives, Steve has just recently been stood down from his airline job, only to return to the float world, taking up the chief pilot position at the struggling Air Whitsunday.

After the company was recently purchased by GSL Aviation owner Trent Brown, Steve’s goals include resurrecting the operation that was once the pinnacle of seaplane flying in Australia.
