Jan Becker’s management skills were given due to recognition last year when she was nominated as a Manager of the Year in the 1999 Queensland Management Excellence Awards. To look at the Coast company founded by Jan and her husband Mike it is not difficult to see why. Becker Helicopter Services is one of only four helicopter training schools in Australia with VETEC accreditation and the only one in Australia approved to teach at remote sites. The company is a regional winner of the GIO Excellence in Business Awards and has developed 25 helicopter training videos that are an Australian first and are sol worldwide. Jan’s goals is to lead the new generation of helicopter pilots by “passing the torch and stirring the fire in another’s belly”. Jan has a varied background, starting with a family upbringing in Singapore to remote nursing by helicopter in outback Australia and PNG. But it is the helicopter company that represents the fulfilment of a dream and provides the greatest satisfaction.
