Richard White has a broad range of experience in airworthiness and airline operations. He has spent 40 years in the industry, initially as an apprentice aircraft engineer in the British Army, before going on to work for the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority and latterly for the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority. His extensive regulatory experience will assist clients to understand continuing airworthiness requirements in a safety management environment.
