BCGA Scholarship Recipients Honored At BCAC Gala

On October 25th we had the pleasure to present three deserving BCGA members with the first of what we hope to be many BCGA scholarships. The scholarships were presented at the BC Aviation Council’s Silver Wings Awards Gala held at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The banquet was exquisite and was attended by many leaders as well as up and comers to the BC aviation landscape. We are fortunate to have developed a strong partnership with the BCAC which in conjunction with our generous scholarship donors have made the BCGA scholarships possible. Applications are now open for the 2018 Scholarships and will remain so until June 30th. For more information visit the BCGA scholarship page.
