By Richard Goette and Jim Bell, CAHS 2015 Convention Co-Chairs
Mark your calendar! The Canadian Aviation Historical Society (CAHS) will be holding its 52nd National Convention and Annual General Meeting in Hamilton, Ontario, on 17-21 June 2015 at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel.
The theme of the convention is "Celebrating Canada's Aviation Industry" and sessions will explore the rich history of Canada's civilian and military aerospace industry. Our team is preparing the convention program which will be open to everyone – university students, professionals in aviation or heritage industries, historians and aviation enthusiasts of every kind. A formal open call for papers and presentations will be sent out in a few weeks' time.
A trip to Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum for its annual Father's Day weekend flying event is planned in addition to the presentations and other aviation-related events and activities.
Preliminary arrangements are still in the works but keep an eye on the wesbite and the e-Newsletter for upcoming details, call for papers and presentations, contact information, schedule, and registration information.
We look forward to seeing you in Hamilton in June!
