Born and Raised in Chilliwack, BC

Nestled in the heart of the Cascade Mountain range, our Chilliwack home-base is within arm’s reach of some of the most breathtaking landscapes the world has to offer. We are passionate and proud of where we’re from, and we’re honoured to share a piece of it with you.

Every element of our experiences—from your gourmet lunch to your mountaintop beer—comes from the beautiful community that you are seeing from 7,000 feet up.

Let’s Plan an Adventure

Our team is here to help you create a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Whether you choose one of our Librico experiences, or create one entirely your own, we work with you to tailor the adventure to your specific needs.

Need help planning? We can help you put together a mountaintop yoga class and wine tasting, arrange catering for a picnic on the peak, or provide world-class photographers for your lakeside engagement.

The Falcon

Our craft is the Cadillac of helicopters—spacious, polished and premium. Named after the fastest bird in the world for a reason, you’ll be travelling at 180 kilometres per hour with the treetops and curving rivers visible below you.

  • Craig Barton


    Craig believes in reaching new heights. Almost three decades ago, he had a small two-person helicopter that allowed him to see the world from a new perspective. Today, as Librico’s President, Craig is living out his dream of offering a fleet of helicopters that bring people together to experience the thrill of the great outdoors. His passion for the environment and eco-tourism brought him out of retirement and back into the hangar to build Librico alongside John Faulkner in the mountainous Chilliwack region they call home. When Craig isn’t managing Librico’s operations, he takes every chance he can get to soar into the sky and head to Crystal Island on Mount Breakenridge.

    John Faulkner

    Chief Pilot and Business Operations Manager

    John feels most at home up in the air. He brings 29 years of flying expertise in the coastal mountains and has trained with top pilots in the industry. He shares his innate sense of adventure and love of flying with our guests as our Chief Pilot and Operations Manager. John seized the opportunity to craft Librico’s guided helicopter experiences, driven and excited to showcase the Chilliwack region that he calls home. For him, it’s not just the helicopter that makes the ride so memorable for guests—it’s all about the element of story. John is passionate that First Nation history and storytelling is embedded into every Librico journey so that each experience not only heightens people’s senses, but also brings awareness of local Indigenous people and their remarkable heritage.

    Adventure Host, Running Bear Expeditions

    Adam lives to explore the unknown. His adventurous spirit shines when he is telling stories and connecting with communities in the great outdoors. As Librico’s Adventure Host and Wilderness Leader, Adam takes guests on an immersive experience steeped in history. Along with his expertise in mountaineering and alpine sports, Adam also teaches Wilderness Education programs to First Nations youth at a local Chehalis school. His passion for teaching elevates everyone’s experience as he describes the rich landscape and culture and honours the people that inhabited these regions long ago. When he’s not 7,000 feet up in the air, Adam searches for lost treasure on the History Channel’s Curse of the Frozen Gold and spends quality time with his wife and two sons—outdoors, of course.

    Don Froese

    Adventure Host, Slel'ke

    Don is a master storyteller of First Nations heritage. He has shared the traditional stories and experiences of his tribe for over 20 years as part of the Seabird Island Band. Don is one of Librico’s Adventure Hosts for the Slel’ke experience. To him, there are no words in the English language that accurately describe the experience of exploring this region—the only way is to embark on the adventure, see the sites up close and hear the stories firsthand. He sees each flight as an individual experience that is physical yet also spiritual, as people become connected to the land. Don is honoured to guide and share the teachings of his fellow people that only First Nations can share in preservation of their story.
