In August 2017, Valerie and Bob Leroux completed their Canada 150 aviation journey across the country from Victoria to St. John’s and back. They will be giving a presentation at the Abbotsford Flying Club on November 8th at 7:30 PM.
As planned, they visited the ten provincial capitals and their respective legislature buildings for a photo with their Canada flag, then on to Parliament Hill in Ottawa, and, of course, a few aviation museums along the way.
They also stopped at some of the airports where the Royal Canadian Air Cadets were training for their Private Pilot Licence (PPL), to share their story and to encourage today’s young pilots to consider a career in aviation.
Bob and Valerie will share some of their flying experiences, photos and stories of their journey and of the people that they met on this exciting once-in-a-lifetime journey.
