Wayne Cave receives flight instructor safety award.
Wayne Cave of Chinook Helicopters, Fixed wing division received the 2018 David Charles Abramson Memorial Flight Instructor Safety Award. Organizers of the award explain Cave, who has been an aviator since the age of 17, quickly found a passion for flight instruction. His 14 year tenure with Coastal Pacific Aviation, explains the award organizers, enabled Cave to develop a variety of post-secondary Curricula for aviation programs.
For more than a decade, Cave has greatly influenced the safety training for a large portion of the pilots who have trained in Abbotsford, BC, where Chinook Helicopters is based. Cave started up the fixed-wing division for Chinook Helicopters. Cave holds an Airline Transport Pilots license and Class 2 instructor rating as well as multi-engine and IFR ratings.
