PHL Team - Matt Fordy - Load Master – New Plymouth Base

"One of the things I really love about PHL is that every day is totally different. I can be securing a load on-site one day then the next me and the guys are working out a new way to rig up some tricky equipment we need to shift."

Matt "Fordy" Ford Load Master – New Plymouth Base

Like the Newton's, Fordy also comes with aviation in his blood. And this, combined with a background in engineering, means you've got a highly valuable team member. Since joining PHL in 2013, Fordy's load master skills and can-do attitude have become world-famous in Taranaki.

Having been around helicopters since he was a kid, mostly in the forestry sector, Fordy knows what it takes to secure a load and make sure it gets to where it's going safely and efficiently. He's also heavily involved on the ground assisting in aircraft maintenance and in the workshop coming up with innovative ideas before getting down to business and actually making stuff.
