Feb. 25, 2009 – Do you know someone past or present in Canadian aerospace who has made an outstanding achievement towards the advancement of aviation in or for Canada? Or perhaps you know of a worthy organization that has done the same? Then consider recognizing their achievements by nominating them for induction into Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame. Their names will join the ranks of close to two hundred men, women and organizations that have advanced aviation from its fledgling beginnings.

Each year Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame solicits from the general public nominations of individuals and Belt of Orion candidates for induction into the Hall of Fame. The deadline for submissions is June 30, 2009.  All nominations received are reviewed by a Nominations Review Committee (NRC), which prepares a list of the top nominations. The NRC’s recommendations are then presented to the National Board of Directors at their fall meeting, at which time the Inductees for the following year are chosen.

If you wish to nominate an individual for membership in Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame or submit a nomination for a group or organization for the Belt of Orion Award for Excellence, full details of the award criteria, eligibility and application guidelines are available by calling Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame at 780.361.1351 x 241 or by visiting our website at www.cahf.ca/nominations .
