Bryan Webster Receives Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award

OTTAWA, May 3 /CNW Telbec/ - The Honourable Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities, announced yesterday that Mr. Bryan Webster of Victoria has received the 2007 Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award for his long-standing commitment to aviation safety.

"Mr. Webster's outstanding initiative in the field of egress training has helped thousands of pilots and their passengers across Canada learn how to improve their chances of survival in an emergency ditching," said Minister Cannon. "He experienced first-hand the dangers of an emergency ditching and, through his own initiative, has dedicated his professional career to providing a comprehensive and successful training program aimed at saving lives."

Mr. Webster has accumulated over 11,000 hours in more than 35 different aircraft types. His career as a commercial pilot includes bush, air ambulance, corporate and single pilot IFR cargo flying. He currently flies, part-time, a De Havilland Beaver commercially along the coast of British Columbia. Along with his egress training courses, he has written a book, Ditching Principles: A Survival Guide to Ditching an Aircraft, and is a monthly columnist for the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association's Canadian Flight magazine.

The award was presented to Mr. Webster at the 19th annual Canadian Aviation Safety Seminar in Gatineau, Quebec. The award was established in 1988 to foster awareness of aviation safety in Canada and to recognize people or organizations that have contributed to this objective in an exceptional way.

The Canadian Aviation Safety Seminar is an international event hosted annually by Transport Canada for all sectors of the aviation community. It features safety workshops and presentations by leading Canadian and international safety experts.

I knew Bryan back in 1989 when I was a ramp rat at Brooker Wheaton. As an 18 year old kid looking to get into aviation, Bryan was defiantly someone to look up to. Congratulations Bryan! :D

TP 8816 - Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award Nomination Guide

:wink:

I was exposed to one of Bryan's "mini" courses at a safety symposium a number of years ago. It was the first time that I had the opportunity to experience the theory that I read about - and it was quite the learning experience.

Thanks again Bryan! :smt023
