Rick grew up in the Abbotsford area where he worked on and operated a dairy farm for about 20 years. Having a dream of one day flying for missions in 2000 he sold the farm, completed his flight training and was accepted with MAF Canada in 2003 where he was placed in Botswana for the first 2 ½ years. Rick later moved to Zambia to work with Flying Mission, flying and serving as Chief pilot there. He met Tracey his wife there and their three sons were born there in Zambia. In 2016 Rick and his family returned to Canada and are excited to be a part of training others for missions both here and around the world.
