Expert all-rounder joins CASA Board

Civil Aviation Safety Authority < 1 mins read

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority Board is deepening its expertise with the appointment of Dr Tarryn Kille as its newest member.


Dr Kille is an experienced aviation professional with extensive experience across aviation research, regulatory policy and operations.


Beginning her career as a professional pilot and flight instructor, she is now an Associate Professor, Program Director and Aviation Discipline Lead at the University of Southern Queensland lecturing in aviation leadership and management.


She has a PhD in aviation sustainability and has served on the International Civil Aviation Organization’s Operations Panel.


CASA Board Chair, Mark Binskin, said the appointment of Dr Kille by Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government Catherine King will bring another layer of experience to the CASA Board.


‘Tarryn has already made an outstanding contribution to fostering and improving Australian aviation safety as a member of CASA’s Aviation Safety Advisory Panel, which she joined in June 2022,’ Air Chief Marshal Binskin said.


‘The CASA Board will be stronger for her knowledge and expertise, as she leaves that position and steps into her new role.’


In addition to developing a strong understanding of policy and regulatory frameworks, Dr Kille has built new post-graduate programs with the University of Southern Queensland and Griffith University.


‘As the aviation industry worldwide grapples with ways to attract new and qualified staff, Tarryn brings extensive experience and insights into shaping the aviation leaders of the future,’ said Air Chief Marshal Binskin.
