Nelson Pilots’ association honoured

The Nelson Pilots’ Association was awarded the William Templeton Award.

The Nelson Pilots’ Association is among the winners announced by the British Columbia Aviation Council (BCAC).

The 2013 Aviation Awards were presented at the October 30 Silver Wings Awards gala along with $10,000 in scholarships to deserving students in the fields of flying, engineering and aviation management in programs from all over British Columbia.

The Nelson Pilots’ Association which last year celebrated 100 years of flight in Nelson, and was also the location of the BCAC’s first annual meeting in 1938, was awarded the William Templeton Award.

The award is presented annually for outstanding initiative and achievement in the successful development of a community airport facility by an individual, association, municipal government or company.
