The BC General Aviation Association is a diverse community of aviators and other interesting people for whom aviation is an important part of their lives. The BCGA Featured Members Page is a way for us to get to know the individuals that make our community what it is. The featured members page is being launched on January 15th and will start with 5-10 member profiles. After the initial launch we will endeavor to feature a different member every week.
