The people behind WASSI

Every major undertaking succeeds or fails based on the strength of the people behind the scenes making it work.

Since its inception WASSI has been gifted with a strong committee who have ensured that the dreams and goals of the Organisation are never far from the day-to-day stages, and through their dedication WASSI has delivered on many of the milestones originally set.

The current committee members are presented below.

Mark Woodhouse—Chairman

The man with the vision. Mark originally conceived the idea of WASSI after many years as CFI of the Walsh Memorial Scout Flying School.

Mark has had immense experience in education, and aviation training in particular through his Air Force career, his career with Air New Zealand, and his personal business running Waypoints Aviation with his wife Ruth.

Steve Scot also has spent many years as a CFI at the Walsh School.
