Brian Van Humbeck


Joined the Board of Directors in 2016.

Brian is the Owner/President of Contrail Aviation Safety, which is based at the Calgary International Airport in offices behind The Hangar. Contrail supports industry business unit leaders and safety professionals by providing technical, safety and aviation advisory services that are aligned with industry best practices, including Aviation Safety Reviews of charter air carriers and oversight of offshore oil & gas helicopter operations.

Brian learned to fly while still in high school and upon graduation, joined Transport Canada where he was employed as an air traffic controller at the Springbank, Yellowknife and Calgary International Airports. However, the flying bug called, resulting in a flight career that generated over 10,000 hours experience on helicopters, corporate jets and turbo-props. Weekend activities will now find Brian flying around southern Alberta in a small privately registered helicopter.

Brian has previously served as a director and executive of several aviation organizations in Calgary and Alberta.
