Our Crew

We Are Mountain Pilots

The complex beauty of the coastal range’s ever-changing weather, combined with the local geography of 8000ft peaks and plunging sea-level valleys requires navigation by a special type of pilot.

Our pilots go through rigorous in-house training specifically tailored for flying in the coast mountains of Squamish and Whistler, so that you can relax and fully immerse yourself in the experience and the endless jaw-dropping views.

We might not wear epaulettes or fresh pressed suit to work, but we’re every bit as professional as the pilots who take you on long-haul flights. Each of our guides are qualified commercial pilots and safety comes first, second and third.

Meet The Crew

CARLO GALVANI

Owner, C172 Pilot & C185 Amphib Pilot

CARLO's Favourite Tour

Prehistoric Glaciers & Peaks

As a kid Carlo would watch floatplanes come and go near his family’s cabin in the Cariboo/Chilcotin region, curiously wondering where they were heading and what they could see from their birds-eye-view. This sparked a passion for flying and an adventurous itch for “seeing what is over the next rise”. Today Carlo owns and operates two companies: Sea To Sky Air, a commercial air service sharing the inspiration that comes with a new perspective of the local south coast mountains; and A+G Reforestation, a silviculture company that plants over 4 million forest seedlings annually, provides ecosystem restoration, wildfire risk management and wildfire suppression services to the Province of BC.  “Both operations allow me to stay connected to the remote places and communities that originally captured my imagination as a child and continue to explore our relationships with the environment around us.”

Base Manager, C172 Pilot & C185 Amphib Pilot

DAVID's Favourite Tour

Howe Sound Fjord & Coast by Seaplane

Born and raised in the UK, David moved to Canada following his love for the mountains. “I now cannot imagine anything other than waking up to sunrise on the mountains and the possibility of going skiing, biking and fishing all in the same day! The Sea To Sky corridor has provided me with many opportunities in life, from participating in Iron Man triathlons, competing at provincial level bobsledding on the Olympic track in Whistler, to having a professional career in aviation”. David bought himself his very first flight lesson here in Squamish in 2011. “Three years and countless hours of studying later I could proudly call myself a commercial pilot”. One of the things that excites David most is the ability to share it all with guests. “We get to make people’s dreams come true. Seeing the beaming smiles created by such a unique perspective of this amazing environment never gets old”.

VICKY GRAHN

C172 Pilot

VICKY's Favourite Tour

Sea To Skypilot

An Alberta native, Vicky grew up in the interior of British Columbia. “Living in BC really sparked my love for the mountains and most of the activities I love to this day. Some of my favourite activities include hiking, biking, skiing and generally just being active. My father was really the one who inspired me to start my flying career.” It was Vicky’s father who sparked the idea of becoming a pilot and was the one who pushed her to really go chase it! After graduating high school Vicky went straight into aviation and moved to the Fraser Valley in 2016, then Squamish in 2018. “I have had the opportunity to fly most of the interior. Although, the west coast has truly been a dream come true. My favourite thing about flying in the Sea to Sky Corridor is that we get to experience the mountains and the ocean all in one flight”.

DOMINIC BEAUMONT

C172 Pilot

DOMINIC's Favourite Tour

Howe Sound Fjord & Coast by Seaplane

Also from the UK, Dominic first visited the Sea to Sky Corridor in 2008 on a working holiday. “After returning to the UK I wasn’t satisfied, I wanted more than just the normal 9 to 5. So in 2013 I moved back out to start a new life”. This new back yard inspired Dominic to go out and live one adventure after another “Hiking, camping, snowboarding, climbing, it’s all here”. Dominic has a bachelor’s degree in Aviation Technology, and completed his commercial pilots license in Vancouver. “I have gained all of my experience flying around these hills. No two days are the same. There’s always something new and spectacular to see that really blows your mind. I love scoping out new peaks to summit or plateaus to camp on and there’s no better view than a sunrise over the distant peaks and the smell of fresh coffee brewing on the camp stove”.
