In this fascinating workshop, Rob will tell us about his experiences in the Canadian Air Force where he was one of the first to fly and instruct on the CF-18 Hornet and was Canada’s First Top Gun. After a stellar career in the Air Force, Rob returned to civilian life and flew private and coprorate aircraft for 14 years. During that time he flew Prime Mnisters, heads of state, celebrity musicians, and corporate tycoons. He is now on a two year leave of absence from Air Canada in order to take up the position of President of Vintage Wings, a unique vintage aircraft museum whose exhibits are all airworthy and fly on a regular basis. This workshop is a great opportunity to learn about the air force and its pilots, and private aviation–how it works and who uses it, as well as the day-to-day life of a commercial airline pilot.
