Get Involved with BCAC

Feb 20, 2017

If you are looking for ways to be more involved in the aviation industry and give back, consider joining one of our BCAC committees. We currently have a few spots open on the following committees. If you are interested in joining one of the following committees, please contact us and tell us why you would like to get involved. 

Air Operators Committee

The Air Operators Committee is going through a change this year and is looking to plan an Air Operators Workshop during ADSE at the Abbotsford Airshow. If you are interested in being part of this, please contact us today at

This committee meets once every few month with a possibility of this increasing to once per month. This committee is generally filled by Air Operators and students.

Communications Committee

The BCAC Communications Committee is a busy committee that works alongside all other BCAC committees and the Board to establish plans and strategies for the year. If you have a background in communications or writing, then this may be the place for you. This committee often works to write pieces for our BCAC website as well as other news outlets throughout the province. The Communications Committee is also focused on seeing our social media channels succeed.

The Communications Committee generally meets once per month, usually in Richmond. Teleconference capabilities are available.

If you are interested in being part of the team, contact us today at!

Silver Wings Awards and Events Committee

If you are familiar with the BC Aviation Council, you likely have heard of the Silver Wings Awards. This is BCAC’s premiere event that is hosted annually in the fall where scholarship and award recipients are honoured. The Silver Wings Awards is a key event for the aviation industry and draws close to 300 people.

For 2017 this committee is expanding and will also be planning several other events throughout the year including pub nights and membership dinners with keynote speakers.

This committee meets once per month, often over teleconference or in person downtown Vancouver.

If you love planning events, this may be the fit for you! Reach out to us today at!

Youth Engagement Committee

The BCAC Youth Engagement Committee has a vision of every student who has an interest in aviation, knows about BCAC. This committee works to ensure that information about aviation is spread to youth all over the province.

This upcoming year the committee has established goals that include:

  • Reaching out and talking to high schools
  • Setting up industry chats for students interested in aviation
  • Expanding information on our website for youth
  • Increase scholarship awareness
  • Attend industry events, such as airshows and career fairs

This committee often meets downtown Vancouver once per month for 1.5 hours. Teleconference capabilities are available if you are unable to attend meetings in person.
