Brent Handy - Born in small-town Wyevale, Ontario, Brent knew from a young age that he wanted to spend his time in the air. Brent’s early flight training was earned through the Air Cadet program. His first solo was in an Air Cadet glider, at age 16. Ten years later, Brent’s dream of becoming a CF-18 Hornet pilot was a reality. And through a fortunate series of events, he was selected to fly as a team pilot with the renowned Canadian Forces Snowbirds jet team in 2011.  Following his tour with the Snowbirds in 2012 / 2013, Brent took his air show career to the next level. Purchasing a beautiful Pitts S-2, he had the good fortune of polishing his aerobatic prowess with air show legend Wayne Handley.

Todd Farrell - In 2018, Todd purchased a Pitts S-2B in order to extend Brent’s reach to eastern North America.  Since then, Todd had the opportunity to receive training from Steve Wolf, and with Brent’s mentorship, he has quickly acquired the skills to join the airshow display team!  Todd has an incredible amount of flying experience, having flown the gamut of aircraft from gliders to the gigantic C-17 Globemaster!  Building on his experience as a jet pilot instructor in the RCAF.

Greg Hume-Powell - Captain Greg Hume-Powell was born and raised in West Vancouver, British Columbia. He​ ​joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2003. After receiving his wings in 2006, he was posted to 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron
