It has always been airplanes for Barry Marsden. Since he was a teenager in the Creston Valley in the 1950s he’s been looking to the sky and finding inspiration in flying machines and the people who fly them. Born in Vancouver and raised in Creston, B.C., Barry embarked on his career path in 1954, by holding flags in farm fields for agricultural sprayer planes to aim at, before becoming an airplane mechanic and pilot. Barry began his aviation career as a mechanic and pilot with Skyway Air Services of Langley, B.C, where he also flew several stints overseas. He graduated from the Southern Alberta Aerospace Institute as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME), and also logged more than 9,500 hours as a commercial and airline transport rated pilot, all in aerial forest fire control and other specialty spraying operations.
