TONDERAI MARANDA

GRADE 3 FLIGHT INSTRUCTOR

Born in Zimbabwe, ‘T’ relocated to Australia as a child and completed his initial flight training in 2013 at RMIT University. He remembers being instantly hooked on aviation when he went to the Avalon Airshow at age 16, and made his mind up then and there to become a pilot.

He’s been a Flight Instructor since 2015 and loves everything about it. Some of the most satisfying moments for T are when his students pass a check, exam or flight test.

He’d love to one day look at becoming an airline pilot but for the moment he is grateful to be teaching others how to fly, and will see where the journey takes him.
