This wilderness helicopter pilot and his trusty dog co-pilot have the best life

His name is Mister Bentley, and he's an English Bulldog, and yes these incredible photos of this dog flying in a helicopter over the most beautiful wilderness along Canada's western coast are real.

Bradley Friesen is a helicopter pilot based in Vancouver, Canada. His YouTube channel and Instagram feed are full of delightful images from the air, with this wonderful pup as his co-pilot. Who's a good doggie?

Mister Bentley is an English Bulldog “living the puppy dream” with his helicopter human. The dog is 4 years old, no word on the pilot. Mister Bentley has his own Instagram feed.

Since my last post with @mrbentley_thedog was pretty much the biggest post in the history of my @instagram, I'm going back to the well a second time. If you're a fan of weird dogs, go check him out.

Being dyslexic is tough. I thought "dog" was supposed to be my co-pilot. My bad. #gopro #goprooftheday #goprouniverse #goproeverything #goprohero4 #goprolife #gopro4 #hero4 #vancitybuzz #vancityhype #bestcopilot #instagram #adventuretime #funnyanimals #animallover #animaladventures #muttsofinstagram #muttmuffs #flyingdog #r44

In preparation for takeoff, @mrbentley_thedog has his tongue in the full upright and locked position. That dog is all about safety. #drytongueproblems

Yet another @alexstrohl from our first flight over Pinecone Burke Provincial Park back in October after the first good snow of the season. This is South Consolation lake. Just beyond this is Disappointment Lake.

Another @alexstrohl of Isabel Lake, with Pitt Lake and Golden Ears Mountain in the background. Normally, I try to post just once a day. But this afternoon I'm going to share a clip from the helicopter perspective as we got setup to take this awesome picture...
