Captain, Northstar Air

My name is Sunny Jambhale and I am a pilot working for a company in northwest Ontario. Currently I am a captain on the Pilatus PC-12. In this role, it is my duty to manage the safe operation of our aircraft. I work with a fantastic team of First officers, ground crew, and other staff to run a safe and efficient operation on our fleet.

I began my formal university education and training at University of Waterloo in 2013. Between 2013-2017 I completed my professional degree, as well as the pilot training program. Along the way I met some of my best friends both within and outside the aviation industry.

Upon graduation I decided to work in the north, gaining valuable experience unique to our beautiful country. I "landed" a job at a company based out of Thunder Bay, at first working in the operation control centre. Eventually I was promoted to a First Officer on the PC-12. As of 2019, I have been a captain on the PC-12. I absolutely love my job, the team members I get to work with, and most of all the beauty of Canada's north.
