Meet the Give Hope Wings Crew

  • Dave McElroy

    Dave learned to fly in Cranbrook in the heart of the Canadian Rockies and has flown more than 3300 hours in 29 different aircraft types. In 2014 Dave flew a Piper Comanche around the world, raising more than $150,000 for two charities: SickKids Foundation of Toronto and Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance of Perth, Scotland. In 2015 the Royal Aero Club in London awarded him the Norton Griffiths Challenge Trophy. Learn More
  • Russell Airey

    Russ completed his private pilot license at age 40 and holds several other pilot ratings including IFR and Floatplane endorsements. Some of his most memorable flying moments have been while “paying it forward" and "paying it back." He has participated in several flights where pilots give their time and aircraft to fly kids who would not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the wonder of flight in a small aircraft.

  • Harold Fast

    A seasoned pilot with over 3200 hours, Harold will act as co-pilot on Russ’s RV9A. Harold regularly uses his aircraft to generate funds for good causes, especially MS and Cancer research. He is excited about the upcoming Give Hope Wings flight which will afford him with the opportunity to step up his planning and navigation skills, while raising significant funds for Hope Air.
