SBC – June 12th – David Curtis, President & CEO, Viking Air Ltd.

Hi All!

I hope everyone is enjoying our great summer weather.  With the sun and early morning light, morning at the Sidney Breakfast Club is a great way to start the day.

This month, we will be enjoying the opportunity to hear from David Curtis, President & CEO, Viking Air Ltd.  as he talks about “Viking Air – selling Canadian products successfully while navigating global geo-political situations.”

David’s aviation career started with commercial flight training in 1983 during which time he joined Viking (  During his career at Viking he has served in various capacities, ranging from Sales & Marketing to Vice President Operations and in 1991 was named President & CEO.  Viking is a privately held company established in 1970.  Viking has grown from a relatively small, MRO facility, to a multi disciplinary aerospace manufacturer with operations in Victoria BC and Calgary, Alberta.  Viking Air has become the region’s manufacturing & business leader with almost 600 employees.

David last spoke to our group 3 years ago so I am anxious to hear what has happened since to bring Viking to the position of success they enjoy today.
