Glen G. Goobie

Glen Goobie was born in Queen’s Cove, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, in 1945, and graduated from high school in St. John’s at Booth Memorial High in 1962. 
His early working days included working for the Newfoundland and Labrador government performing road surveys in many parts of the province, including communities not yet connected by road. He then went on to Churchill Falls, Labrador, during the initial startup of the Churchill Falls hydroelectric project. There he continued survey work, which included hydrometric surveys on the lakes that were part of the hydro development. Those trips out to the lakes in a bush plane captured his interest in flying.
His flying training was completed in Moncton, New Brunswick, and his flying career took him to Northern Ontario for a couple of years. Upon his return to Newfoundland, he flew with Newfoundland Air Transport, Gander Aviation, and NL Government Air Services water bombers until his retirement.
Glen is married to Helen Gosse of Gander, where they currently reside. They have two adult children, Heather and Chad.
