AVIATION’S VITAL ROLE RECOGNIZED DURING SASKATCHEWAN AVIATION WEEK
Oct. 22, 2012 - October 21-28 has been designated Aviation and Aerospace Week in Saskatchewan. This week will officially recognize the important role aviation plays in tourism, industry and travel for Saskatchewan's people.
"Aviation serves as a lifeline to our province, whether it's showcasing our beautiful province to visitors or protecting our citizens by ensuring policing and air ambulance services, aviation plays a crucial role in our province," Highways and Infrastructure Minister Don McMorris said. "I want to take this moment to sincerely thank our aviation professionals for their service to Saskatchewan's businesses and communities."
The aviation sector and its professionals help link communities, businesses, the resource sector and tourism with provincial, national and international markets, clients and destinations.
"We appreciate the provincial government's efforts to improve transportation in northern Saskatchewan and how the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure continues to work with aviation stakeholders to advance aviation through various means such as the Community Airport Partnership Program," Saskatchewan Aviation Council President Janet Keim said.
In conjunction with the week, the Saskatchewan Aviation Council, the Saskatchewan Aerial Applicators Association and the Canadian Business Aviation Association Saskatchewan Chapter are hosting their annual joint conference and trade show on October 24-26 in Prince Albert, called Wings of Saskatchewan.
The conference provides an opportunity for professionals in the aviation sector to share best practices and new ideas while discussing ways to improve the industry.
