Charlee Hateley

My name is Charlotte (Charlee) and I am so excited about joining the board of GFS.

I was born in Australia in 1988 and attended St. Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls. I was awarded a Music scholarship in 2001, drums being my instrument of choice. I play all genres of music, from jazz, symphony, pop and rock. I was one of the 4 head prefects at St Hilda’s and graduated with two honours awards.

After school, I was fortunate to take a year to travel and work before commencing Flying Training to become a Commercial Pilot. Upon completing my flying training, I was awarded the Air BP Tom Miller Scholarship.

I am also a qualified flying instructor. I have trained many young pilots including the Air Force Cadets and cadet pilots for China Southern Airways.

I am now a Captain for an Australian Airline. In 2023 I became the first female in Australia to be Captain of my current fleet.

I have been successfully involved with the local government regarding rezoning, which is something I am very passionate about.

I have been involved with and am a director of a successful company located here in Perth for over 8 years.

Privately I love pilates, going most days when I am able, and spending time with my family, which includes my beautiful dog Mira, and travelling.

For some time I have been looking for a new challenge and for something to be a part of. I would like to be able to give a little bit back to the Community. The opportunity to become part of the GFS Board, with all the exciting plans for the future is an amazing opportunity. I will hopefully get to meet many of you and I am looking forward to GFS moving into the future with the amazing plans at West Swan.
