Anne is a very active member of the association, she has become the heart and soul of the Vanderhoof Airport and has a passion for aviation and community that is hard to beat. Anne was also the recipient of the BCGA Onkarbir Singh Toor Memorial Bursary in 2018 which recognizes a pilot who has overcome adversity in pursuing their passion for flight. Lastly we would like to acknowledge that we are long overdue in welcoming our first female member to the BCGA leadership team.
A Message from Anne:
"As a kid living on the coast in Alert Bay and Shearwater, I was fascinated with the float planes and amphibians that shared the docks and harbours. One never forgets the sound of a Beaver roaring to life on a misty morning. Forty years later after a few careers and raising two daughters with my husband Rick, a chance conversation with a pilot at an airshow inspired me to take an introductory flight and life was never the same! Four years later I am a student pilot, Secretary of the Vanderhoof International Airshow and active member of the Vanderhoof Flying Club. "
