ATAC Mourns the Passing of Max Ward

The Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC) mourns the loss of Canadian aviation pioneer Max Ward, who passed away on November 2 at the age of 98.

An ATAC Member for many years, he was made an ATAC Lifetime Honouree in 1978. Max also was inducted into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame in 1974 and made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1975.

A northern bush pilot who built his regional carrier Wardair into Canada’s largest charter airline and third largest airline overall, Max Ward left an indelible mark on the development of commercial aviation in Canada. His focus on the highest quality service for passengers at affordable prices is still talked about fondly by those many appreciative customers served by Wardair.

The ATAC Board of Directors and Staff extends their heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of this preeminent figure of Canada’s aviation history.

Letter to Minister Garneau - Aid Package

ATAC is asking that an equitable and verifiable financial aid package designed for regional air transport includes direct financial aid; taxes and charges relief; loans and/or loan guarantees; consumer incentives to use air services; and most importantly, implementation on an expedited basis of fast COVID-19 testing programs in lieu of quarantine restrictions that currently exist, especially for domestic operations.
