Copied from Top End Mustering’s Facebook page.
Roger was an absolute giant of the industry. A gifted pilot and an incredibly kind and humble man. His loss will leave a big hole.

Top End Mustering, along with the northern aviation industry, is mourning the loss of highly respected pilot, 65-year-old Roger Nowland, following a tragic helicopter accident during routine mustering operations at Limbunya Station on Tuesday.

Roger is remembered by his family, friends and colleagues as a kind, talented and thoughtful human being who was considered a mentor to many young pilots and known for the genuine care he always expressed for his colleagues.

Roger was a modest fellow, particularly given his status as a true legend of the Australian aviation industry. He had an enduring love of the Kimberley Region which he shared with so many.

The team at Top End Mustering is devastated by the passing of their great friend and colleague and are focused on working closely with relevant authorities through their investigation process and supporting those who were lucky enough to know and love Roger.

Roger is survived by his partner Sally, two children, Katie & Robert, and sisters, Sandra & Debi.

We request media respect the privacy of Roger’s family at this sensitive time.
