I’m Christo Hudson and I come to Cleartrack Performance with over 10,000 hours of flying experience. I developed a passion for flying as a young boy and following a rather stinted career in the Royal Air Force, became a commercial airline pilot with a regional carrier for 12 years. Operating advanced aircraft in some of the world’s busiest airspace could be both challenging, exhilarating, scary and fun! I thrived in our airline “family” and learnt that to have a consistently high performing team, we needed to have an open and honest culture where people felt able to genuinely be themselves.
From my work as an experienced training Captain and Black Box investigator, I discovered that errors will always occur but it’s the subsequent learning that comes from these incidents that is essential.
Following a life-changing redundancy, I now use my knowledge of human factors and skills as a facilitator to encourage people to become more confident with having “uncomfortable” conversations about mental health. I am kept busy in my spare time by my four young children and can otherwise be found attempting DIY to varying degrees of success!
