Anthony Gasson - Engineering

NCAT Technology Leader
We are pleased to welcome Anthony Gasson as the new Technology Programs Leader heading the Technology team at the college. Before coming to NCAT, Anthony was the Head of Technology at Whittlesea SC.
 
Anthony is an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer by trade and worked on both light aircraft and Commercial Airliners. He spent most of his time working with 747-400s. His vast industry skills in this area are perfect for teaching Engineering students with Tony Willie.  
 
Anthony was also involved with the recovery of crashed and failed aircraft. On one occasion he drove in a truck with his boss for four or five hours into regional Victoria. In the middle of a paddock in the middle of nowhere was a little Cessna which had had an engine failure. They took the task of pulling the wings off and driving it back to Moorabbin Airport so it could be repaired and reassembled. He is also a very keen car enthusiast and works on cars in his spare time. 
 
Ten years ago when the aircraft maintenance industry showed sign of decline he decided to become a teacher.  Anthony has really enjoyed his new career. He is a passionate advocate for technology studies programs in schools and is very excited to be working at NCAT where there is a strong community of highly skilled teachers and a group of passionate students/learners.
