About Kim George

I am currently a captain flying 777’s, having started my aviation career in the RNZAF. In 1989 I joined Air New Zealand, and - at the same time - NZALPA.

Along with the aviation career, I have an IT business. I studied for my computer science degree extramurally and learned database programming along the way. In 1989, in response to a growing need for computer literacy, NZALPA formed an IT committee; I joined this committee and continue with this responsibility.

In 1994 I was appointed by the BOM to the role of Systems Administrator, a position I also continue to date. I currently have a third party Database Support Contract with NZALPA. 

I am married – for 33 years now – and have 3 children.
