On this podcast I’m very excited to be interviewing someone I respect a great deal. My sister, Nicola, has accomplished some amazing feats. She is hard working, diligent, intelligent and easy to get along with.
After earning her Honours in Business Science she embarked on a journey to Scotland working as an investment banker. She moved to London and shortly thereafter, qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Once completed, Nicola went on a round the world travel, which included fantastic places like the Galápgos Islands and Antarctica.
Once her trip ended in Cape Town, she began her 3rd career and qualified as a commercial pilot at 43 Air School in Port Alfred.
Her adventures as a commercial pilot and CA, led her to flying in the Okavango Delta, flying C206 from Maun, Botswana, to the many small lodges. Wild tales of chasing lions off the runway and being blocked by elephants are some of the many adventures of Nicola's life.
Join me on this conversation, as she has now settled down as an airline pilot with Virgin Australia, flying Boeing B777 on international routes.
