Gary Wakefield


RAF Royal Air Force

A former Naval Officer and Fleet Air Arm pilot, I served in the Royal Navy for 21 years. I was fortunate enough to fly and lead all over the world with an exchange tour to the Royal New Zealand Navy and a tour as a Qualified Helicopter Instructor. Following two years on the staff of Britannia Royal Naval College as the Head of Leadership Training I studied for a Masters Degree in Defence Studies at the Joint Staff College part of Kings College London.

On leaving the RN I trained as a Fixed Wing Commercial Pilot and have flown for the past 17 years for a British aerospace company providing Operational Readiness Training to the RN and RAF. During this second career, I have been promoted to Captain, trained as a Training Captain and served as the Flight Safety Manager for 4 years. I have facilitated CRM training for my entire career and am currently the CRM Trainer Examiner and CRM Manager for the Company.

In my spare time, I keep fit, I am a keen road rider and a fanatical Laser sailor. I also have the privilege to serve as Rear Commodore for one of the largest yacht clubs in the British Isles.

I live in Dorset with my wife and son, with my daughter living away from home at university.
