Stefan Woods
Australia Crest

Stefan won the Career Achievement Award as part of the 1999 Young Australian of the Year Awards.

Three years ago Stefan from the Northern Territory was unemployed with little prospects in sight. He held a pilot's licence so he decided to begin his own charter company.

Today, he is leasing 9 aircraft and has 8 staff.

Stefan, aged 25, said "It's basically great to be recognised for doing something. A lot of people scorned me and put me down and said it could not be done. Well this award proves otherwise."
