Boyd on Board
Two key aviation safety appointments have now been confirmed by the Australian government with Sir Angus Houston continuing as chair on the Board of Airservices Australia. Jeff Boyd succeeds Dr Alan Hawke as the new chair of CASA for a three-year term. Boyd has been deputy chair of the Board since July 2014 and was the founder of Brindabella Airlines. His appointment has received strong commendation from the industry with many delighted by Boyd’s grass roots aviation experience and hoping that he will alter the perception of CASA as an adversary into that of an informed accomplice.
