Not every little boy gets to wake up and live his dream. My dad, Jim, had airplanes as part of his business. I think airplanes are the coolest thing in the world. They are faster than cars, and they give you the opportunity to ride the wind and soar above the ground. Growing up I got to ride with dad and the pilots. I used to think to myself wouldn’t it be cool to become a pilot and fly my dad around.
When I got older, I saw something dad didn’t see. We had a private aircraft company servicing just one client. The little boy inside started to dream again. What if we created a private charter company? What if it was filled with a bunch of people that love airplanes as much as me? What if I could help others experience the same feelings I had? How awesome would that be! Oh, the places we could go!
On July 11, 2008, I launched Kreos Aviation. A company that focused on old-fashioned customer service and creating opportunities for others that were previously out of reach. I wanted Kreos to be authentic, provide a valuable service and be all about family. Dad’s still customer number one, but it feels incredible to share this with the entire province. I get excited every time I talk to anyone that works at Kreos, as they love planes as much as I do.
