A longtime instructor and training icon is the recipient of this year’s David Charles Abramson Memorial Flight Instructor Award. While Jack Proctor was a line pilot, instructor and check pilot at Air Canada, he also instructed at Seneca College. That allowed him “to provide students with a wider viewpoint, thus equipping them with the necessary knowledge for today’s ever changing world,” award founders Jane and Rikki Abramson said in a news release.
The founders presented the award at the annual Air Transport Association of Canada meeting in Montreal. The stated goal of the award is “raising the profile of flight instructors by recognizing and honouring exceptional instructors in Canada who have made a significant contribution to the advancement of Canadian aviation safety.”
