Hello I’m David’s sister and have worked with David for 20 years. I grew up with planes and holidays at competition all around Australia. When I was a teenager Dad talked me into flying being the only daughter to give it ago, but beach and boys soon became more interesting than a hot flying field, but I did enjoy the hobby while it lasted.
I enjoy my job at Model Sports and enjoy working beside my brother
