Hi from Zone A!

I first got my wings back in the mid-2000's with Westwinds R/C Aviation Society in NW Calgary. A fantastic group of flyers.

Family and career circumstances had us move to Halifax in 2009 and back to Calgary in 2015, with intermittent participation in the hobby along the way.

My latest return to the hobby was in early 2022 when I joined the Foothills Flyers... a jewel of a field and a super group of flyers. I'm very happy to return to model aviation and hope to spend more time on the sticks.

I've had a love of aviation since I was a kid. As a teen I was an Air Cadet. As an adult I was an Air Cadet officer and I got my full-scale wings at Truro Flying Club in Nova Scotia. I'm a happy husband of 35 years (1987), a dad of two great kids and a granddad of two great kiddos.

Professionally, I've been an oil and gas engineer in industry for ~ 20 years, and then an oil and gas industry regulator since 2009. I'm currently Chief Safety Officer at the Canada Energy Regulator.

I'll wrap up by saying that model aviation is a cool hobby that I'm quite happy to serve and hopefully I can start to pay back what MAAC has given me over the years.

Bonjour,
Je suis né à Windsor en Ontario en 1952, alors je suppose que je fais partie de la génération des baby-boomers. A été embauché par Burroughs Business Machines à la sortie de l'école secondaire, a déménagé à Sudbury avec cette entreprise - une longue histoire - puis à North Bay.
J'ai commencé à m'intéresser au mannequinat à North Bay, à la recherche d'une diversion. J'ai développé un intérêt pour les modèles réduits d'avions après avoir assisté à une démonstration à la Comber Fair peut-être en 1970. J'ai acheté ma première radiocommande aux passe-temps de Bob sur Lakeshore - une chaîne Kraft 5. J'ai payé 500 dollars de 1975. J'ai rencontré ma femme chérie à North Bay (une autre longue histoire) et j'étais membre du club d'avions modèles de North Bay et du Nippissing Miniature Airplane Club - maintenant connu sous le nom de NIPMAC. La même compagnie m'a alors déménagé moi et moi à Sault Ste. Marie. Je les ai quittés et j'ai été embauché à l'aciérie où j'ai passé 35 ans à prendre ma retraite du contrôle environnemental. J'ai occupé de nombreux postes dans mon club local, j'ai été directeur de zone il y a des décennies pour un mandat et j'ai été directeur de zone adjoint pour le Nord de l'Ontario pendant une décennie de toute façon. Je fais actuellement de la voltige à grande échelle pas trop bien, des modèles flippy un peu mieux, des mousses intérieures et tout le reste.
