ATAC congratulates National Helicopter for celebrating 30 years in business. Over 700 guests went through the National Helicopter facility to see a variety of helicopter models during its Annual Open House event, last Saturday October 3rd. 350 guests took that opportunity to go for a helicopter ride on one of the 3 Bell 206 LongRangers. A part of the proceeds from the event went to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
ATAC Officers met this morning with Hong, Si-Kil, Vice-Chairman, and In-An, Yu, Planning and Policy Officer, of the Korea Civil Aviation Development Association.
The object of the meeting was an introduction of the two associations and a presentation of the work done by each association.
In addition to ATAC President and CEO John McKenna, Executive Vice President Les Aalders, Senior Vice President and CFO Mike Skrobica and Vice President, Commercial General Aviation Wayne Gouveia participated in the meeting.
Zhuoyang (David) Shi, from Moncton Flight Centre is Canada’s Top Amateur Pilot for 2015. Shi, who represented the Atlantic Provinces, won the John C. Webster Trophy Competition in the annual competition. Runner up was Jack Bradshaw, from Brampton Flight College, representing central Ontario. Gabriel Kim, the Eastern Ontario rep from Seneca College, won the NavCanada/Webster Trophy for his top mark on an exam about regulations and procedures.
This year, the four-day competition was hosted by Pacific Flying Club in Delta, B.C. and culminated with a gala dinner and awards ceremony at the River Rock Resort in Richmond.
Shi had the highest aggregate score after a grueling schedule that included a flight test, simulator ride, two written exams and an interview with the judges.
