Many factors came together to allow us (The BC General Aviation Association) to offer these scholarships.
1. Generous contributions by Erissa Yong & Dr. Harshbir Toor.
2. A strong and productive partnership with our affiliate organization The BC Aviation Council.
The recipients are being announced today August 8th and the awards will be officially presented at the BC Aviation Council’s Silver Wings Awards Gala on October 23rd.
We wish to thank all those that applied for the awards and encourage those that did not apply and those that were not chosen this year to submit an application for the 2019 awards.
