David currently works with Synergy Flight Training as the Chief Flight Instructor alongside his father, Lavern. His lifelong experience in the industry as an operational pilot working wildfires, bird towing, and general charter on all types of helicopters has given him incredible amounts of knowledge and skill to impart to our students and staff.
Murray retired from the Canadian Army after 20 years of service, where his love for helicopters developed from flying in the back. He decided to move to the front seat. After returning from his last overseas tour, Murray got his civilian licence. With his natural leadership capabilities, combined with his experience with the Canadian Armed Forces, Murray’s transition to flight instructor was a smooth one. His favourite part of the job is the satisfaction of preparing a student for an aviation career and following their success from start to finish. Bringing to the team his passion, patience, and investment in our students and company, Murray is dedicated to meeting the expectations of our customers, leaving everyone with a smile on their faces and a lasting impression in their minds.
