Taking flight: Canada’s first-ever global circumnavigation by helicopter starts now!

NEWS RELEASE  | 

TORONTO, ON - As sponsors of the C150 Global Odyssey (C150GO), our firm celebrates the start of Bob and Steven Dengler’s adventure together in Ottawa as they set off on a 39,000 km trip across the globe in their Canadian-made Bell 429 helicopter.

The firm is also proud to announce a number of generous sponsors who are also supporting the trip: Bell Helicopter, Honeywell Aerospace, IAMGOLD Corporation, Inmarsat, Lundin Mining, Stephan/H Flight Suits, Universal Weather & Aviation, AirBoss of America, Delaney Capital Management, Denison Mines, Fountain Hills Investments, KTI Limited, Lake Wilcox Brewing Co., National Helicopters, Nikon Canada, Spidertracks, and Youtrients.

With a passion for aviation, adventure, and their home country, Canada, the father-son team of risk-takers Bob and Steven Dengler set out with C150GO as the world’s first Canadian around-the-world helicopter flight, and the first ever father-son aerial circumnavigation. In celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, C150GO will support and raise funds for both the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation and True Patriot Love Foundation. The team took off today towards their first destination, Ottawa, and will be zigzagging the globe. The crew is visiting more than 100 airports in 14 countries as they travel the world. Follow their position live here.

About C150GO

The C150 Global Odyssey starts in Canada and moves east before navigating the open ocean, foraying into Europe and Russia, and then returning to Canadian soil. Along the way, C150GO will stop at several Canadian military bases while also visiting several national and international Canadian landmarks. C150GO is a registered Canadian not-for-profit organization developed to support and raise funds for both the Southlake Regional Health Centre Foundation and True Patriot Love Foundation.  All donations and funds raised throughout the journey will benefit the causes and programs that Southlake and True Patriot Love support.
