Silver Wings Industry and Scholarship Awards Celebration 2024

At our annual Silver Wings Industry and Scholarship Awards Celebration, the BCAC recognizes aviation and aerospace industry colleagues for specific achievements. As well, we disburse approximately $150,000 through our Scholarship Awards Program to hard-working students enrolled in aviation and/or aerospace programs in British Columbia.

We invite you to join us at this annual gala Celebration at the Vancouver Convention Centre West for an evening of fine food, live entertainment, an online auction, a 50/50 draw, a vibrant awards ceremony and unparalleled networking opportunities.

Registration is open.
