Brent Bidston – President and lead pilot
We immigrated from the UK to Canada in 2005 and have been living in Fernie ever since. I was an Airline Captain for my 30 year career. When we immigrated I was working for Korean Air as a Captain on their A330 fleet but took early retirement in 2009 to live full time in the Elk Valley.
My Wife and I joined BC Ambulance and served 10 years at the Fernie station. During that time I started the Elk Valley Air Search and Rescue Association, a unit of CASARA, and have been operating in the Rocky Mountains since 2012.
I now look forward to getting Angel Flight East Kootenay up and running while also running and Air Search and Rescue.
