Penny Mackay

Safety Assurance Manager


Apart from being fired up with enthusiasm, the common denominator of the whole Nelson Tasman team, is outstanding experience levels. Penny is certainly no exception. Her background is impressive, with experience in all areas of running an aviation business, and specialist skills in assisting operators with Safety Management Systems.

She was previously CEO / Quality Manager for the Nelson Aviation College where she also trained young people into the industry she is passionate about. She is currently Lead Auditor for Navigatus, auditing Generation Aviation, Agricultural and Tourism Operators.

A flyer, glider, general aviation examiner, aerobatics instructor, mountain flying examiner – there is no doubt Penny is in love with the sky, and the aviation business (and has great taste in music by the way!).

“The professional (and social!) structure of this business is fantastic. All of us share a love of flying, and the same keenness for the future of Nelson Tasman….exciting times ahead!”
