Originally from Reunion Island, Clement moved to Australia in October 2006 to study a diploma for the builders’ registration after high school, then aged 18. Several years later while on holidays back home, he went on a helicopter scenic flight of the island in a twin squirrel. The flight and perspective of the island was amazing and I walked out of it with one goal, becoming a helicopter pilot. That night he started his research for a helicopter flight school in Perth. A couple of weeks later he was back in Perth and after completing a trial flight with Heliwest, he began his training toward his commercial pilot licence. His training took two years to complete, training on a part time bases whilst working full time in the building industry, passing his CPL flight test in January 2015. Clement was then given the opportunity to conduct scenic flights for Heliwest on a casual basis during weekends before receiving the opportunity to go to Cairns for a check ride and interview after applying for a junior pilot position with Nautilus Aviation. Barely a month later he had his bags packed up and was moving to Cairns before being sent up to Horn Island for his first full time pilot job. He has been working for Nautilus Aviation ever since and is based on Horn Island flying charter work all over the Torres Straits in a R44, building up hours, gaining valuable experience and working his way up towards the next step, turbine machines.
