Rob FoxRob Fox: Chief pilot, Levaero Aviation
Rob’s interest in aviation began in the late 1980s, as for many at the time, after watching a movie about U.S. Navy Fighter pilots. From that point on, his goal was to become a fighter pilot. After high school, Rob attended the Aviation Flight Management program at Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario, with the goal of enrolling in the Canadian Forces’ Community College Entry Program for advanced flight training upon graduating from college. However, while in college, his priorities shifted and Rob developed a passion for float flying.
After flying floats for various operators in Ontario and Saskatchewan for five seasons, he decided to make the transition to the IFR flying world. His first job after flying floats was on a Pilatus PC-12 in Calgary for AirSprint. His next role would keep him in the PC-12 but this time flying for a new medevac provider, Ornge.
Having spent almost six years at Ornge and developing his PIC skills, as well as those of a training captain, Rob had the opportunity to fly the PC-12 NG for the Ontario Provincial Police. He spent the next four years as a civilian pilot, supporting the police force in a variety of flying missions.
Rob is now Chief Pilot at Levaero Aviation, the exclusive Canadian Pilatus dealer. Additionally, he is the company’s PC-12 Demonstration Pilot and supports the sales team with their cross-country sales efforts.
