The Silver Wings Awards were held at the Vancouver Convention Centre overlooking Coal Harbour. The evening was hosted by the BC Aviation Council and was focussed on recognizing the achievements of B.C. aviation professionals and students. This year over $ 20,000 in scholarships were awarded to very hardworking and deserving students.
The evening also included plenty of networking time where industry professionals, enthusiasts and newcomers had the opportunity to meet and discuss aviation in British Columbia.
The BC General Aviation Association was honored to have been invited to this event! We were asked to attend and setup a media station with our website, featring the BC Airstrip Map that we have made available to our members. Our organization was very well received and the overall feeling is that what we are doing has been a long time coming and it is time that we support and promote general aviation in BC. The event not only lead the way for some great conversation and potential association affiliation agreements but it also allowed us to sign up some new members ranging from flight students to the an airline C.EO.
We would like to offer a heartfelt thanks to the B.C. Aviation Council for having us at their event and a warm congratulations to all those deserving awards recepients!
Stay tuned for upcoming announcements!
