THE RETRO PILOT
Retropilot is a Brisbane-based design studio run by me (James) - an aviation enthusiast and full-time RAAF pilot.
The business accidentally began in 2014 after seeking something unique to commemorate the end of my initial military pilot training. Four years and many designs later, Retropilot artwork can be found in homes, messes and Squadron offices right across Australia.
I have 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. My job has taken me to exotic locations all over the world, including the Himalayas, Antarctica and East Sale. Many Retropilot designs are based on my own experiences.
I currently fly a desk, and work as the Operations Officer for the RAAF's C-17 Squadron.
