Director of the Board
With over 36 years experience as an aircraft maintenance engineer, 25 years as a licensed rotary wing pilot, business owner and company visionary, Mike O’Reilly currently sits as Chairman of the Board for Eagle Copters. Mike was mentored by his father, Mel O’Reilly who founded the company in 1975, and subsequently assumed the role of President in 2001.
Mike has consistently maintained the principals for which Eagle was founded while strategically growing it into one of Canada’s largest helicopter companies. Under his leadership, Eagle continues to expand its international reach and offerings, with partnerships in Chile and Australia positioning Eagle globally. Mike also initiated the concept of product repurposing to Eagle with the introduction of two industry-leading Bell helicopter customizations: the Eagle Single and the Eagle 407HP.
