Dave Paterson

Aircrew Officer

Having spent half of his 16 years in the Australian Defence Force on helicopters, Dave found moving to RACQ CapRescue to be a natural evolution.

The variety of situations he encounters in the Capricorn region continues to be both a challenge and a source of deep professional satisfaction. Dave’s duties include assisting the pilot with navigation and mission coordination as well as operating the winch and assisting the on-board medical crew at the scene of an incident. Helping those in need, whatever the circumstances, is why Dave is proud to be a member of the RACQ CapRescue team.
