 Helicopter Pilot | Royal Navy, Ministry of Defence


I grew up on Guernsey and at 19 I decided to join the Royal Navy. I joined to become a pilot and it took almost four years of training to become qualified as a frontline helicopter pilot. I joined the Commando Helicopter Force and I have been fortunate to fly all over the world; Norway, California, Afghanistan, Jordan, and all over Europe. I would say I’m one of a handful of female pilots in the Navy, but I can’t say it’s ever effected my progression, I’m a firm believer that you get out what you put in and hard work always pays dividends. I have been in the Royal Navy for over 8 years now and I am excited to see what further opportunities the Navy will offer. In my spare time I enjoy all things active; wakeboarding, snowboarding, cycling, mountain biking and running.
