Silver Wings Banquet

On October 25th, the BC Aviation Council’s annual Silver Wings Banquet was held at YVR’s South Terminal. At the event, the Ernie Alexander Memorial Aviation Scholarship was presented to Sean Samuel of BCIT’s Airline and Flight Operations Program, who recently obtained his commercial pilot licence and now plans to pursue his instructor rating. Named in memory of Ernie Alexander Q.C., a founding Alexander Holburn Partner who also had a distinguished career with the Royal Canadian Air Force, this scholarship is awarded to an aviation or aerospace student demonstrating academic excellence and achievement in his or her community.
