Pilot Pete was a character created late during 2018 for the New Zealand Maritime Pilots Association conference in Wellington New Zealand.

Following on from the conference, we developed a range of basic sketches that we felt could form the basis for a calendar. Working with Steve Banks (NZMPA president who provided technical and regulatory guidance) the various depictions gradually grew in number until we enough to complete the calendar.

The NZMPA version went to print in late October and a UK version was created and printed shortly after. The topics between each version remained consistent.
