Our Team

Brent Genesis

Business aviation veteran Brent Genesis founded Genesis Aviation as a unique response to the needs of private and business aircraft users. 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 Turbo Prop 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, Brent has experience with a broad range of travel profiles. He 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.

Brent has coached aircraft owners through the process of having their newly acquired asset sitting on the ground to being fully operational with a suitable management company. This experience has given him a thorough and well-developed understanding of the business aviation marketplace.

Having been a Flight Instructor and Commercial Charter Pilot, Brent is at the forefront of market trends and offerings. Those in need of strategic, professional aviation solutions will benefit from Brent’s dedicated, direct, and discrete approach.

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.
