History & Background
EFC traces its roots back to 1946, to a fixed-base operation (FBO) in Calgary, AB. In the early 1970s, it was purchased by Peter Bawden, an oil man who acquired a group of aviation-related companies, among them a commercial air charter service, a flying school, and three leasing companies.
In 1978, Ken Lett – an aviation icon who flew Spitfires for the RCAF in World War II, later climbing to the rank of Major General while serving as the Deputy Chief of operations for NORAD – came to Calgary to manage Peter Bawden’s aviation assets.
In 1989, Dean Buckland joined the organization in an accounting role which expanded to Vice President of Finance. A few years later, Ken and Dean partnered to purchase the business from the Estate of Peter Bawden. It was through their leadership and vision that Executive Flight Centre has broadened their network to operate out of 19 strategic locations throughout Western Canada and has increased their product offering to include Airport/Aerodrome services and real estate projects through EFC Developments Ltd.
