At the orientation and briefing for Airshow Nelson 2014, Tim Cole, Canadian Owners and Pilots Association regional director for BC and Yukon (left), presented Nelson area resident and pilot Case Grypma (right) with an Award of Merit to recognize Gryma’s lifelong contribution to aviation in this community.

This award also represents the importance of local aviation, and airports like Nelson’s Norman Stibbs Airfield, to the national and international aviation community. Case was chairman and air boss of the recent airshow and is a past president of the Nelson Pilots Association.

The Canadian Owners and Pilots Association represents the interests of and advocates for general aviation in Canada. Cole described the group as “the aviation equivalent of the Canadian Automobile Association.”
