CASA has appointed aviation expert Dr Tarryn Kille of the University of Southern Queensland to its board.

Dr Kille, an associate professor, program director and aviation discipline lead at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), has previously worked as a professional pilot and flight instructor as well as at ICAO.

“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,” said CASA’s chair, Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin.

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

“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.”


Transport Minister Catherine King added that Dr Kille had made an impact in aviation education with new post-graduate programs at USQ and Griffith University.

“Dr Kille brings a strong understanding of policy and regulatory frameworks, having worked in these areas previously, and brings a unique set of skills to the board of CASA,” she said.

“Her qualifications and experience will help shape and govern CASA as it navigates future opportunities and challenges.

“I look forward to continuing to work with the CASA Board to ensure Australian aviation remains among the safest in the world and a world-class leader.”
