Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friend Laval St. Germain and his family, as they mourn the loss of their son, Richard St. Germain, who was lost in a tragic accident on the Mackenzie River. Richard's obituary with memorial and donation information is available below. We are all deeply saddened by the tragic loss of this exceptional young aviator and hope you'll take a moment in memory of Richard.
Today NATA, in conjunction with many other aviation associations in Canada, sent in a joint letter of concern regarding high power laser pointers to Minister Raitt. It calls for more robust laws concerning them, their use, and education regarding their hazards to aviation. The full letter can be downloaded below.
