Youth Learn About Aviation and Aerospace Careers on National Aviation Day

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2010) - Canada's Transport Minister John Baird today celebrated National Aviation Day 2010 by highlighting an event drawing attention to this year's theme - youth. As part of National Aviation Day, the Canada Aviation Museum hosted an event to feature the variety of career paths available to youth in Canada's aviation and aerospace industry.

The museum hosted a career fair where aviation stakeholders and Transport Canada showcased different career options to students.

"The Government of Canada is proud to celebrate the second annual National Aviation Day by inspiring our youth to pursue rewarding careers in aviation, and by highlighting the progress Canada has made toward safe, efficient and sustainable aviation," said Baird.

During the celebration, the Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award was given to Mr. Vitorio Stana, director of Quality Assurance at Avcorp Industries Inc., to honour his commitment to excellence in aviation safety in Canada. Mr. Stana has played a key role in setting and maintaining the highest manufacturing safety standards for Avcorp's aviation products destined for service in Canada and around the world.

"Mr. Stana's commitment to aviation safety represents the gold standard to all who work in this industry, and his thoroughness and dedication can set a good example for the young people who will follow in his footsteps," said Baird.

The Transport Canada Aviation Safety Award recognizes persons, groups, companies, organizations, agencies or departments that have contributed, in an exceptional way, to aviation safety in Canada.

In 2009, February 23 was designated National Aviation Day in Canada. This occasion highlights the federal government's role in the safety and security of all Canadians, and celebrates the successes of the aviation industry in Canada.
