Coulson Aviation Australia’s Safety Manager Ebony has been in aviation for 12 years and has a passion for working with people and creating a safety-focussed culture.

“My job keeps me incredibly busy, but I would not change it for the world. I chose the career path of Safety because I enjoy working with people and I am passionate about creating a culture that pertains to a just and safe environment,’ she said. 

“Everything in aviation is tied back to safety and I enjoy that responsibility.” 

Ebony didn’t originally have her eye on aviation

“I fell into my first aviation job by chance, I had no idea what I was getting myself in to at the time but the thought of working around helicopters sounded really cool so I hit the “apply” button and landed the job 2 weeks later.

“Since then, I have grown significantly both personally and professionally thanks to the many experienced aviators who have mentored me along the way. I could not imagine working in any other industry now,” she said.

No day is typical for her in her role

“Every day is different for me. At Coulson Aviation Australia, I am filled with such a sense of purpose knowing I am part of a team that supports the community in times of crisis. For example, our team members are rescuing people of the roofs of houses and delivering essential supplies in the NSW floods (March 2022).”
