Clark Scott
General Manager

Overseeing all aspects of NZONE Skydive is Clark ‘Scotty’ Scott.

Hailing from Christchurch Scotty has been a Queenstown local for over 20 years and made his first tracks in the adventure tourism industry as a Ski Instructor. After his first winter he decided Queenstown was in fact the ‘Prinicpality’ of New Zealand and stayed on, getting behind the wheel at Shotover Jet as a Jetboat driver and working his way up to Operations Manager.

In 2002 Scotty was promoted to the role of General Manager, Huka Falls Jet in Taupo where he remained for 4 years before returning to Queenstown to become Manager of Ngai Tahu Tourisms flagship business Shotover Jet.

After 8 years at the helm of Shotover Jet he swapped boats for planes and life jackets for parachutes embracing the opportunity to take on the role of General Manager with another of Queenstown’s iconic adventure activities, NZONE Skydive.
