The Honorable Company of Air Pilots (HCAP) has unveiled the lineup of 2014 North American award winners.
Among them is Ron Price, a B.C. pilot and businessman, who has been an innovative leader in North American aviation for over three decades.
Under his direction, the Abbotsford International Air show became one of the most successful air shows in Canada. Price’s vision to pair it with a trade show resulted in Airshow Canada that later expanded and moved to Vancouver as Aerospace North America.
In 1988 he initiated a break-through in East-West relations by persuading the Soviet Union to participate for the first time ever in North America. Price was also a founding Board member and has always been a promoter and supporter of the North American region of the Guild of Air Pilots Air Navigators (now HCAP).
For his meritorious service to the industry and to the Company, Price has been chosen to receive The Award of Merit.
The nominees will receive their awards at London’s medieval Guildhall on Oct. 23.
