Fascinated by all things electronic since he was a small boy, Stephen Gale learned to fly after he realised that the RAAF supersonic aircraft he worked on as an engineer were actually pretty cool, and and a lot more interesting than a just a vessel for electronics magic! Aside from avionics engineering, Stephen is an inventor, designer, consultant, occasional lecturer, and documentary creator (www.anyfoolcanfly.com). And, as will be seen at the Latrobe Valley Airshow 2020, Stephen is an experienced jet display pilot, flying regularly in formation aerobatic displays at events and airshows in the fast and furious SIAI-Marchetti S.211.

Jock served in the RAAF as an Airframe/Engine technician from 1975 to 1998. Since leaving the RAAF he has been involved in a number of projects introducing new military aircraft types into Australia and the review and optimisation of maintenance policy for existing aircraft. Aviation has been his primary interest for most of his life with a number of years gliding experience and 20 years skydiving where he represented Australia in the 1989 World Championships. Jock started flying GA aircraft soon after leaving the RAAF and is a keen aerobatic pilot. When not flying in his beloved Bonanza, Jock will give just about any aircraft a go!
