On behalf of your National Executive, Board of Directors, and myself, I want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and nothing but blue skies for 2019.

I received this post on my Facebook page and thought “what a great idea” so wanted to pass it along to everyone and suggest that you also send a card. When filling out your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address:

Any Canadian Forces Member
PO Box 5140 Stn Forces
Belleville ON
K8N 5W6


If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards will be sent overseas to these wonderful, special people, who have sacrificed so much.

We have seen another successful year for the CAHS. We have a new chapter in Medicine Hat and enjoyed a fantastic convention in Calgary last June. 2019 is looking like a continuation of great things for our society with plans for our national convention this coming May in Montreal, increasing museum and individual memberships, and exciting activities at all the chapters.

I thank all the National Board of Directors, the Chapter executive members, our Journal editor, our e-newsletter editor, our webmasters, and all our members for their passion and support that continue to make the CAHS the authoritative voice of Canadian aviation history.

To everyone in The Canadian Aviation Historical Society, all the best this Christmas Season and let’s keep making aviation history throughout 2019.

Blue skies,
