Pitt Meadows, B.C.; May 22, 2018 ‐ The Pitt Meadows Airport Society announced today the appointment of Guy Miller as General Manager of the Pitt Meadows Regional Airport effective June 18, 2018. The airport has been under temporary management since the departure of Elvio Pecchia on February 1, 2018. Miller was selected from a candidate list of 38 and comes with impressive credentials for the job.
He is a current pilot with 31 years of flying experience. Firstly as an F‐18 fighter pilot and instructor in the Royal Canadian Air Force followed by twelve years in Hong Kong as a Boeing 747 pilot and simulator instructor with Cathay Pacific Airways. On return to Canada in 2005, he was appointed Deputy Manager Langley Regional Airport by the Township of Langley responsible to Airport Manager George Miller, his father. On the latter’s retirement in 2012 he was appointed Manager of the airport.
At Langley Regional Airport Miller has overseen the further development of the airport to its current annual budget revenue of $1.6 million. His effective marketing to private aviation investment and attention to modernizing airport infrastructure has resulted in the growth of its value added benefits to the local community and to the province. Now that the airport is near fully developed and recognized as having the largest number of helicopter companies in Canada and a strong recreational aircraft base, Miller looks forward to a new challenge at Pitt Meadows.
Pitt Meadows Regional Airport has been operating since 1963. The Pitt Meadows Airport Society now owns and operates the airport having assumed its transfer from Transport Canada in May 1999. The Society operates the airport as a non‐profit organization and reinvests all its earnings back into the airport to improve it for the community.
