Personal profile


Steve recently joined the CU Human Systems Integration group after spending the past 33+ years as an International Airline pilot. Following 10 years in the South African Air Force, Steve then moved across to the commercial fraternity spending 5 years with South African Airways and 18 years with Emirates Airlines. Aircraft types operated included A326, DC3, B200, AT472, B737, B747 & B777 accumulating over 16000+ flying hours. From an early part of his flying career he realised that aircraft and the human brain are indelibly connected, and thus began his interest in the cognitive aspects in life.
