This award is given out annually for outstanding initiative and achievement in the successful development of a community airport or floatplane landing facility by an individual, association, municipal government or company.

The inscription on the award reads: “Presented to the Nelson Pilots Association to recognize the contribution made to aviation in the province of BC by the pilots and people involved in keeping Nelson’s vital airport open and running since 1912.”

The William Templeton Trophy is awarded annually to deserving nominees. Past winners include the Abbotsford International Airport, Kamloops Airport Authority Society and the Canadian Rockies International Airport in Cranbrook.
