Award of Honour and Award of Merit Nominations

CATCA recognizes members who have made a significant contribution to both the Association and the aviation industry as a whole.

The Award of Honour recognizes members who have displayed exemplary professionalism in recognition of meritorious action taken during a time of duress which enabled the preservation of safety of passengers, aircrew and aircraft. Details about this award and previous recipients here.

The Award of Merit recognizes the personal contribution of members who have displayed an unselfish dedication to the Association. Details about this award and previous recipients here.

Members are invited to submit nominations for these awards to the National Office by Friday, September 29, 2017. Submissions can be sent to National Office via mail or email with the subject line “CATCA Award Nomination.”
