Individuals are nominated by members of ATAC and are then presented to the Board for a vote on their contribution to the industry.
Recipients have included high-profile Canadian aviation giants such as Max Ward (President of former Wardair), and Rhys Eyton (Chairman & CEO of former Canadian Airlines).
"We are honoured and proud to have Tracy as an Honourary Life Member," affirms ATAC's President, John McKenna. "This award is warranted due to her hard work and commitment to the aviation industry as well as to this association."
