Karambir’s journey in the world of aviation took flight from the city of Auckland in New Zealand. In pursuit of a new horizon, he embarked on a remarkable educational journey where he spent his formative years in Sydney before relocating to Melbourne in 2016 to complete his education.

Initially, Karambir’s ambitions gravitated toward aeronautical engineering — however, his trajectory evolved, and he chose not to mend planes but to pilot them, guided by a growing passion for aviation.

Dedication to his newfound path, he earned an associate degree at RMIT between 2018 and 2019. The University recognised his exceptional commitment and talent, resulting in his employment as a Grade 3 Flight Instructor at the tender age of 19.

Throughout his journey, Karambir amassed a remarkable array of qualifications and expertise, including the prestigious Grade 1 Flight Instructor Rating, FIR, MECIR, Spinning & Acrobatics Rating, and a Formation Flying Endorsement.

Nathan Karazisis

Grade 1 Flight Instructor

As a child, Nathan had a recurring tradition of attending the Avalon Air show every year, igniting a deep fascination with aviation and the potential of it becoming a lifelong career. The inspiration to pursue a path as a fighter pilot was sparked after watching the movie “Topgun.” However, this dream encountered a setback, as the individual’s height rendered them ineligible to fly the F18 aircraft, and Nathan lacked interest in piloting other aircraft within the Airforce.

In response to this challenge, Nathan decided to work full-time while concurrently pursuing part-time flying opportunities. This dedication eventually led to the attainment of their Commercial Pilot’s License. Seeking to further their aviation education, in 2014, they successfully enrolled and completed a diploma program in aviation. A turning point in their journey came in 2016 when they secured a significant opportunity at Tasfast Air Freight Moorabbin, which served as their foot in the door moment. Building on this experience, they went on to become an Instructor and Charter pilot before commencing a new chapter by joining Learn to Fly, marking another significant milestone in their career. Although the dream of becoming a Topgun may remain unrealised, Nathan has discovered immense satisfaction in their current role as an instructor, finding joy in guiding and witnessing students embark on their solo flights. Reflecting on their journey, they express a profound sense of reward and fulfilment.

Safety Manager | Grade 1 Instructor

Aviation has always been a part of Cam Meyer’s life. Following in his father’s footsteps, he first took flying lessons in 1982; however, school and university delayed flying training in earnest until 1992. Cam’s interest in the technical aspects of aeroplanes and piloting is what led to him becoming a flight instructor, working at various flying schools at Moorabbin and at Avalon. 

Most of his flying in the past 12 years has been with aerial photographers and flight instructor training, but he had the most fun as an aerobatics joy flight pilot and training for a low-level rating. 

Cam developed an interest in aviation safety management when it started emerging as a “new idea” for general aviation in the early 2000s, introducing formal safety systems for the flying schools worked for and eventually taking it on as a full-time role in 2020.

Cam applies his extensive knowledge and experience in aviation and safety management to his role at Learn to Fly as a Part 142 Safety Manager. He is responsible for investigating and reporting on the company’s aviation risk exposure management and fostering a robust safety culture within the organisation, an ideal that must be fiercely defended and meticulously nurtured.

Grade 3 Flight Instructor

Jay’s passion for aviation sprouted in the soil of his family’s aviation legacy, with a family of pilots sharing stories and conversations of relatives who served as pilots for Ansett, it became the foundation for Jay’s pursuit to fly.

As he grew older, Jay embarked on a Trial Introductory Flight (TIF) to ascertain whether flying was indeed his calling. The experience was both thrilling and challenging. After the flight, he found himself perplexed by the task of trimming the aircraft, a moment of anxiety that only strengthened his resolve to master the intricacies of aviation.

Jay pursued a Bachelor of Aviation in Adelaide before then obtaining a commercial pilot’s license. In recent weeks, he celebrated the completion of the ATPL exams, demonstrating his commitment to excellence and mastery in the field.

In the short term, Jay’s focus is on honing his skills as an instructor, aiming to ascend to the coveted position of Grade 2 or even Grade 1 instructor.

Sebastian Rossi

Grade 3 Flight Instructor

Seb’s journey into the world of aviation was a destined path that began as far back as memory serves. His fascination with aviation was ingrained in the hours spent meticulously assembling and flying model planes and the countless visits to airport lookouts. At the age of 16, Seb took his first Trial Introductory Flight (TIF). This experience was like the final piece of a puzzle falling into place, confirming his career direction. He embarked on his aviation journey immediately after completing school.

In his younger years, Seb harboured dreams of becoming a fast jet pilot, perhaps inspired by the allure of Top Gun. However, as he matured, his aspirations evolved. The path that once led to fighter jets transformed into a desire for an airline career, followed by a potential transition to corporate flying or even the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) should the opportunity arise.

In the short term, Seb envisions a continued journey towards becoming a Grade 2 flight instructor, with ambitions to eventually attain the coveted Grade 1 status. Along this path, he hopes to expand his teaching repertoire, specializing in tailwheel and multi-engine instrument flight rating (IFR) instruction. As he imparts his knowledge and experience to aspiring pilots, he continues to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of aviation.

Outside the realm of aviation, Seb finds solace in the warm embrace of summer and embraces an active lifestyle. His dedication to fitness and an active routine serve as a counterbalance to his intense study and work commitments.

Aviation has always been a part of Cam Meyer’s life. Following in his father’s footsteps, he first took flying lessons in 1982; however, school and university delayed flying training in earnest until 1992. Cam’s interest in the technical aspects of aeroplanes and piloting is what led to him becoming a flight instructor, working at various flying schools at Moorabbin and at Avalon. 

Most of his flying in the past 12 years has been with aerial photographers and flight instructor training, but he had the most fun as an aerobatics joy flight pilot and training for a low-level rating. 

Cam developed an interest in aviation safety management when it started emerging as a “new idea” for general aviation in the early 2000s, introducing formal safety systems for the flying schools worked for and eventually taking it on as a full-time role in 2020.

Cam applies his extensive knowledge and experience in aviation and safety management to his role at Learn to Fly as a Part 142 Safety Manager.
