Sydney: Seaplanes and Morgan

sydney: Sydney Seaplanes CEO Aaron Shaw described Morgan as an extremely experienced pilot with more than 10,000 hours of flight time, including about 9,000 hours of seaplane time, according to Metro News. He said Morgan worked for Sydney Seaplanes on two occasions, the first from 2011 to 2014, after which he went to fly seaplanes in the Maldives before rejoining the company in May 2017. Tour company Sydney Seaplanes said Gareth Morgan was piloting the plane that crashed Sunday afternoon and a spokesman for the company said Morgan also held Australia citizenship. On a personal level, he was deeply respected and liked by me and all of the team here as a man and as a pilot, Shaw said in a statement. We are devastated by his loss. He flew my family and I to Palm Beach just before Christmas. ( As reported in the news.
