With more than 20 years’ experience operating aircraft, Sibbeston brings a critical combination of flying skill and knowledge of the North at a time when Trinity is expanding operations across all three territories. “Glen is an invaluable addition to the Trinity team,” says Rob Carroll, president and co‐founder of Trinity Helicopters. “He has decades at the controls, and he knows what it takes to fly helicopters up here. That’s important to our clients.”
Sibbeston is equally enthusiastic about working with Trinity. “This is an exciting move for me,” he says. “Trinity is a relatively new company, but it has already earned a reputation for being innovative, professional and ambitious. I think the Trinity team is ready to lead the industry in efficiency and safety, and I can’t wait to get started.”
A member of the Metis Nation and with northern roots, Sibbeston boasts an impressive combination of academic and hands‐on accomplishments. He holds a diploma in aviation and a degree in mechanical engineering. He has served as a pilot and officer in the Canadian Forces. He has spent much of the last decade
in the role of base pilot with Great Slave Helicopters out of Fort Simpson, managing helicopter operations in the remote Mackenzie Mountains and throughout the North.
“Glen has been working as an engineer and has experience on the administrative and analytical side of the business,” Carroll adds. “We can leverage that experience to serve Trinity’s clients and help them meet their transportation challenges.”
Sibbeston’s appointment as chief pilot allows Geoff Furniss to focus on his duties as manager of operations for Trinity Helicopters. Since its founding in 2009, the company has doubled its fleet of helicopters and expanded operations to become pan‐territorial, with bases in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and the Yukon. Last week, Trinity received the Business of the Year award from the NWT Chamber of Commerce.
