Ilulissat Logistics Services
Leadership. Danish-born entrepreneur Flemming Bisgaard owns the facilities, equipment, and gear available through Ilulissat Logistics Services. Having made his home in the scenic fishing port of Ilulissat for more than two decades, he has traveled all over Greenland.
Bisgaard is one of just a few people certified to fly the giant Sikorsky helicopter, which (in addition to routine air services) functions as an air ambulance serving Greenland’s remote communities. An affable and adventurous soul, Bisgaard draws on his extensive contacts around the island to provide services that delight his clients, a mix of scientists, filmmakers, adventurers, teachers, and miners.
To learn more about Bisgaard, read an interview he gave to Discovery several years ago, available here.
