On Nov. 10, 2017, the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA) Board announced the appointment of Paul Tyrrell to the position of chief executive officer of the AHIA.
This appointment will enable the AHIA to progress to the next level in its development as one of the proactive associations in the Australian aviation industry.
Tyrrell comes with a wealth of experience as a manager of companies and associations. He was previously the chief executive officer of the Regional Aviation Association of Australia. Living and working in Canberra for many years, Tyrrell has an in-depth knowledge of government procedures and protocols, and he is highly regarded in the upper levels of government and CASA.
In the position of chief executive officer, Tyrrell will be the initial point of contact for any queries or concerns from the helicopter sector.
President Peter Crook said, “We welcome Paul to the AHIA and look forward to the continued growth of our association for the benefit of the helicopter industry.”
