Provincial Airways Pilot, George Giesbrecht, was recognized by 15 Wing for his contribution to flight safety. During the 2018 growing season, George had just finished applying crop care product to a field and was en route back to the Moose Jaw Muni CJS4 when he encountered a training Hawk from 15 Wing.
George's quick reaction to begin turning away and innovated decision to use his smoker alerted the trainee to his prescence. A special thank you to 15 Wing for visiting the muni to recognize George and present him wiht a Flight Safety for Professionalism Award and very special coin symbolizing Commendable Contribution to Flight Safety. Well done, George!
