Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame (CAHF) will induct four new members at its 41st annual gala dinner and ceremony to be held in Calgary, Alberta, in May.
The new members are: Clive J. Beddoe, founder of Westjet Airlines; Lorna De Blicquy, flight instructor and trailblazing advocate for the role of women in aviation; Robert P. Engle, founder of Canada’s Northwest Territorial Airlines; and Fred Moore, a military and civilian pilot and administrator responsible for improving air force aircraft acceptance standards, as well as the use of weapons systems simulators. Moore also rose to senior management ranks at Northwest Industries and Okanagan Helicopters.
CAHF inductees are selected for their contributions to Canada’s development through their integral roles in the nation’s aviation history. This year’s inductees will join the ranks of the 212 esteemed men and women inducted since the hall’s formation in 1973.
