Christian “Boo” Boucousis was a fighter pilot in the Royal Australian Air Force for 10 years. He is now the CEO of an innovative property development group called Mode, and is currently developing Australia’s tallest prefabricated hotel in the Perth CBD.
Boo’s life story is a real world example of how fighter pilots use the skills developed during their military careers to succeed in business.
After being diagnosed with a serious medical condition, Boo could no longer fly fighter aircraft and decided to take the plunge into business. Using the skills and knowledge he acquired in the Air Force, Boo co-founded a successful humanitarian support company in the Middle East, employing over 1,500 staff. He then sold that business, moved back to Australia and set his focus on the development of affordable building methods. This focus was the beginning of his company, Mode.
Boo attributes his success in business to the values and discipline he learned during his Air Force career – focus, efficiency, continuous improvement and simplicity. And because of this experience, Boo fundamentally believes that the simple methodology used by fighter pilots (which Afterburner calls “Flawless Execution” or “FLEX” for short), can bring alignment to, and excel the performance of any business or organisation.
