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

Whistler Backcountry Air Safari

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.”

DAVID's Favourite Tour

Phantom Lake 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”.

DOMINIC's Favourite Tour

Prehistoric Glaciers & Peaks

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”.

ERIK BRAUN

C172 Pilot

ERIK's Favourite Tour

Coast Mountain Epic

Having grown up in the Fraser Valley, Erik developed a passion for being in the mountains at an early age. “Growing up, my Dad had a 15 passenger van named Big Blue that we’d stuff full of friends and drive to Mt Baker on weekends to go skiing. The mountains have always bee a big part of my life”. After a 5 year stint in Toronto earning a bachelor’s degree majoring in photography, Erik returned to BC and began the journey of becoming a splitboard guide. He has since guided around the Kootenays and Japan. “I had always been interested in aviation, and flying then allowed me to connect with the mountains in an entirely new way.” Erik began working at a floatplane base in northern BC flying a super cub in the rugged and remote Cassiar Mountains. Now calling Squamish home, Erik is incredibly excited for the opportunity to share his passion for the mountains with others while flying in the Sea To Sky Corridor.

CHELSEA's Favourite Tour

Squamish Explorer

Growing up in the Fraser Valley, Chelsea has long felt the pull of the mountains. As an avid snowboarder and motorcyclist, the coastal mountains offer year-round excitement and inspiration.

Catching the travel bug early in life from her dad, Chelsea has backpacked much of the world a few times over, so when she began her career search it quickly made sense to leverage her wanderlust and build a career in aviation. Chelsea obtained a Business Aviation diploma from the University of the Fraser Valley as well as her commercial pilot license in 2019 and began training at Sea to Sky Air in early March 2020. Her less than stellar timing aside, Chelsea is back in Squamish and is very excited to be able to share her love for aviation and make memories in the mountains.

ALEXIS's Favourite Tour

Whistler Backcountry Air Safari

Born on the East Coast of Canada into a family of avid skiers, Alexis’ parents had a big influence on his appreciation for the mountains. “Some of my best childhood memories are of us going up on weekends at our cabin and spending time with friends on the hill. I always enjoyed the aspect of freedom that sports like skiing and biking can offer me. Years later, I discovered aviation, and since my first flight, I have had that same feeling of freedom, just to a whole other level. I knew that this would be the type of career I could see myself pursue. Flying here is a dream come true and I am truly grateful to be able to share that feeling with our guest here at Sea to Sky Air.”
