After serving in the Royal Australian Air Force as a Loadmaster and Huey Crewman, Drew developed a life-long love of, and interest in, all forms of military aircraft. After leaving the RAAF, Drew learned a number of computer programming languages and became qualified as a CAD operator. Combining his love of aircraft and his software engineering skills was a natural and relatively easy progression after he discovered PC-based Flight Simulators. It was the release of X-Plane 10 and X-Plane 11 that prompted him to form Drew's Dezines in 2017 and focus on producing high quality, feature rich and, realistic addon aircraft for the X-Plane platform.
Drew's Dezines is a wholly privately owned Australian business, founded in Adelaide South Australia.
