Collins Barrow, March 23, 2017 - Toronto, ON – Collins Barrow Toronto is pleased to announce their support of the C150 Global Odyssey (C150GO).
With a passion for aviation, adventure and their home country, Canadian father-son team Bob and Steven Dengler set out with C150GO on Canada’s first around-the-world helicopter flight. As an added distinction, they are also the first-ever father-son global circumnavigation team.
The Canadian crew will fly a Canadian-made Bell 429 Global Ranger helicopter over 37,000 km in just over one month. Starting in Ottawa on July 1, 2017 and zigzagging the globe, the crew will visit more than 100 airports in 14 countries as they travel the world.
“At Collins Barrow Toronto, we judge ourselves by the company we keep,” said Michael Allen, partner and member of the firm’s management committee. “We are very proud to support Bob and Steven’s adventure, follow their journey and allow our clients the opportunity to experience something they can’t get elsewhere.”

CB Toronto is excited to extend the opportunity to join the C150 Global Odyssey as a virtual crew member, and is inviting those interested in sponsoring this special flight to contact them.
