My experience by John O'Brien

I hold an Australian ATPL(A), Grade 1 Multi Engine Instructor Rating and Command Instrument Rating (6 renewals). I have been flying for 12 years and in that time I have accrued around 5000 hrs total including approximately 400hrs night. My past experience includes general aviation charter, freight operations and instructing.

I currently work as a First Officer with a regional airline flying Dash 8 aircraft and have accrued over 700hrs on that type.

Despite holding an ATPL, my medical currently restricts me from exercising privileges outside Australian airspace or above CPL level, thereby presently precluding me from obtaining a command position and becoming a Captain.

Throughout my career my colour vision has never affected my ability to operate safely and I regularly fly by day/night and in VMC/IMC without problems.
