THE RETRO PILOT
Retropilot is a Brisbane-based design studio run by James - an aviation enthusiast and full-time RAAF pilot.
The business accidentally began in 2014 after seeking something unique to commemorate the end of his initial military pilot training. Four years and over 180 design options later, Retropilot artwork can be found in homes, messes and Squadron offices right across Australia.
James has flown the CT-4B, PC-9A, Hawk-127, F/A-18F Super Hornet and most recently was a Captain on the C-17A Globemaster for the RAAF. His job has taken him to exotic locations all over the world, including the Himalayas, Antarctica and East Sale. Many Retropilot designs are based on his own experiences.
He currently flies a desk.
