Adrien Daigneault

Production Manager | Person Responsible for Maintentance

Grew up in Wainwright Alberta where I’ve always had a passion for mechanics but at that time wasn’t sure of which type of mechanics. I decided to dip into the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Technology (AME) program at SAIT.

Upon completion of the program I worked as an apprentice with Bar XH for 1 year where I worked mostly on King Air’s. I continued 2 more years of my apprenticeship with Rangeland Helicopters, and upon completion started working on Single Engine Aircrafts which led me to my current position as Production Manager with Rangeland Helicopters.

I have a strong passion for the aviation world and want to continue gaining knowledge and experience for many years.
