The ATAC Board and staff are deeply saddened by the passing of Amy Foy

The ATAC Board and staff are deeply saddened by the passing of Amy Foy on December 26 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Still grieving over the passing of Wayne Foy barely a couple of months ago, the aviation community is greatly appreciative of Amy and Wayne Foy’s enormous contribution to the Webster Memorial Competition, instilling passion and promoting excellence in aviation amongst youth in Canada.

ATAC has always been very proud to support Amy and Wayne’s devoted work for the Webster Competition and in their honor will continue to endorse this important competition.

They will be sadly missed.

ATAC offers its deepest condolences to the Foy family and to the Webster team.

A memorial service will be held Saturday April 6th at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road, Nepean, ON, (between Bayshore and Baseline Rd.) Visitation starting at 10:30 for about an hour, service after, and a reception after that.  There will be a notice in the Ottawa Citizen on March 30th.

ATAC Appears Before TRAN Standing Committee

On Dec 4, 2018, ATAC appeared before the House of Commons’ Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure, and Communities to discuss the challenges faced by flight schools in Canada. We delivered the message that support for students and support for flight schools is critical as we continue to face a shortage of labour in the aviation workforce. First and foremost, we ask for assistance in providing funding to student pilots. We also ask that government support flight schools with the capital purchases they need to increase their capacity to train new pilots. The committee seemed receptive to these recommendations and we look forward to working with government to make them a reality in the new year.
