The Aviator

The Aviator is an inspirational documentary about world renowned aviation theory instructor Bob Tait. 

Bob was awarded an OAM in 2020 and was inducted into the Australian Aviation Hall of Fame in 2017 for his contribution to aviation.

He is a former aerobatic rated flight instructor who began teaching his students in Ingham to help them pass their exams, however quickly realised that many students across the country were struggling with aviation theory.

Bob has helped thousands of pilots on their journey into a career in aviation, and often can’t walk through an airport without being recognised by airline pilots wanting to thank him for helping them achieve their dreams.

“The Aviator” follows Bob as he undertakes the required training to complete his Recreational Pilot Certificate. With commentary along the way from RAAus' Neil Schaefer, instructors, former students and friends, the film gives a glimpse into the life of this incredible eighty year old who has aviation coursing deeply through his veins.
