Bentley Thistlethwaite, AME; MDM

Postion: Production Manager

Growing up around helicopters and coming from an aviation family, a career in helicopters was something that Bentley was destined to pursue.  Born in Australia and living in PNG (Papua New Guinea), Bentley always hung around his father and the flight crew at Talair and Pacific Helicopters. His fathers love and passion for aviation has set a strong foundation within Bentley and has propelled him to be one of the finest helicopter AME’s in Canada.  Having graduated from Canadore College in 2002, he moved to southern Ontario to continue his passion for the aviation industry. He started at the Brampton flying club as an AME apprentice and worked until the opportunity of moving into the rotary wings side of things presented itself. Accepting a job a Heli-Lynx Helicopter Services as an apprentice engineer, he started to experience the completion side of the business. Everything from striping and painting the complete aircraft, to structural repairs, Component O/H, composite layups to major STC incorporation, and regulatory documentation. He is a well rounded engineer that can take on any task that is handed to him. 

Today, Bentley has continued to expand his scope of expertise by achieving his ministers delegate maintenance authority (MDM) and has elevated himself to manage and direct the daily/ future production and operations in all areas of Heli-Lynx helicopters.
