Brent Genesis







Brent Genesis


Business aviation veteran Brent Genesis founded Genesis Aviation as a unique response to the needs of private and business aircraft users.

Genesis Aerial Exploration was a natural addition to the Genesis family. Through a series of relationships formed in his Aviation tenure, Brent initially began within the drone sector, offering consulting and safety advice to this up-and-coming technology.

This transitioned into the forming of the business around the mining and resource sector augmented by his friendship and business colleague William Sattlegger, P. Geo.

Brent has many years of experience with a proven track record as a charter sales leader with some of Canada’s largest business aircraft operators.

Having dealt with diverse aircraft fleets, from TurboProp aircraft servicing oilfield support, Light to Large Cabin Jets saving precious time for senior oil and gas executives, to Regional Aircraft taking a group of friends on a fishing trip, he has experience with a broad range of travel profiles.

Brent has developed and sold in the Fractional Aircraft Ownership market, and energy and mining operators have benefitted from his direction and support through the re-commissioning of their private airstrips.

A native Albertan, Brent, his wife and their three children live in the Calgary area. He is the past chair of the Board of Directors for the Calgary International Airport Chapel. Brent is also a committee member for the Calgary Chapter of Ducks Unlimited Canada’s Annual Fundraising Dinner.
