British Columbia Aviation Council 2010 Conference and Silver Wings Banquet

Congratulations to the British Columbia Aviation Council for a successful 2010 Conference and Silver Wings Awards Banquet!  As always, the highlight of the Banquet was the presentation of the Council’s annual industry awards and aviation student scholarships.  We were especially pleased to watch the inaugural presentation of the Alexander Holburn Beaudin & Lang LLP Aviation Scholarship, in memory of Ernie Alexander, Q.C.

The late Ernie Alexander was a founding member of our firm and a former Royal Canadian Air Force pilot and instructor.  For a very interesting story about one of Mr. Alexander’s flying adventures, click here.

This scholarship will be awarded every year (on the basis of merit and financial need) to a student enrolled in an Aviation or Aerospace program at a post-secondary institution in British Columbia.  Congratulations to our first recipient, Natalie Hanczak (pictured above).  Natalie is an exceptional student in BCIT’s Airline & Flight Operations Program with career plans to become a commercial pilot.  We are thrilled to have such a deserving recipient and wish her the very best in her future endeavours.
