Bruce Is Managing Director and Chief Pilot, and along with wife Helen, owns and operates Aerospread. Bruce kicked off his working life as a musterer in the Central Otago high country and Marlborough districts. If you have time ask him about it – there is many a yarn to come from those early days.
Bruce has become one of New Zealand’s most experienced topdressing pilots, spending many years topdressing in his Cresco in the Gisborne Area, before settling Helen and family in the sunny Hawke’s Bay to start Aerospread Ltd.
Bruce’s constant drive to become a safe, innovative, efficient topdressing company has seen expansion from Aerospread’s humble beginnings. This relentless push towards achieving these goals for the aviation industry and farming community is what makes Bruce, Helen and Aerospread the successful family run business that it is, today.
Bruce’s passion is topdressing and although spending more and more time on special projects that will improve safety and efficiently in the topdressing industry, Bruce loves nothing more than helping his daughter Anya improve her horse riding skills and can often be found at local events in Hawke’s Bay.
