The Canadian Aviation Historical Society was formed in 1963 with a goal to record, preserve and share the aviation history of Canada. To this end, CAHS publishes monthly newsletters and a quarterly journal and boasts 10 chapters of the organization across the country.
Kingston, Ontario is the host city for this year’s annual convention, which will take place from June 21 to 24 and, for those unable to travel, they can attend via Zoom.
“We are proud to carry on our mission to remember Canada’s history in every aspect of aviation in celebrating this milestone anniversary and look forward to many years ahead in recording significant accomplishments in aviation,” CAHS president Gary Williams said in a press release.
Included in this year’s convention activities are a tour of nearby RCAF Station Trenton and the National Air Force Museum of Canada.
“I’m extremely proud of our organization, and the work we do,” said Toronto chapter president Sheldon Benner. “My membership in our society has offered many opportunities to meet aviation-minded people who are interested in preserving Canada’s rich aviation history.” Brenner joined CAHS when it was founded.
