Louis Galatis

Louis’ career in aviation began at Moorabbin Airport a very long time ago. Now, as a retired International Airline Captain with 30+ years of experience, he is extremely proud to be back to where it all started. 

Having lived abroad for most of his working life, Louis has flown for Gulf Air based in Bahrain, Singapore Airlines based in Singapore, and Etihad Airways based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Over his long aviation career, he has operated the B737, B767, A340, B777 & B787. He is often asked if he has a favourite, “that is like choosing a favourite child” he often remarks.

Louis is enthusiastic to share his knowledge and experience flying commercial heavy jets covering ETOPS Operations across the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans, he is also well versed in Low Visibility Procedures to CAT 111B. 

Before his retirement, he was a Type Rating Instructor (TRI) – B777 & B787 and a Synthetic Flight Instructor (SFI) – B787. 

For Louis, being in the skies is the most rewarding career imaginable. He is extremely proud to now mentor aspiring young pilots who wish to further their careers in aviation. He strives to support the next generation of pilots in their development to advance their confidence, safety, and skills whilst also providing a unique insight into International Airline Operations.
