The November/December issue of Wings covers a range of current key topics impacting Canadian aviation, including an inside look at the drone detection program at Ottawa International Airport, YOW, and new jet movements from the world’s largest business aviation event, NBAA-EBACE, that took place in late October.

Journalist and pilot Phil Lightstone shares unique insight in an article called How to Close an Airport, lessons learned as Buttonville Municipal prepares to shut its doors for good on November 30.

With the goal of bringing our readers timely business information, articles in this issue focus on how and why major airlines are being hit by greenwashing litigation, Qantas’ potential liability after claims of selling ghost flights, and how domestic companies like Draganfly are influencing the RPAS world.

The November/December issue also details leading Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul for fixed- and rotary-wing operators in North America in our annual MRO Directory. ATAC leader John McKenna provides a report on the key issues facing Canada’s new Transport minister, Pablo Rodriguez, as the commercial transport association prepares to meet in Montreal, November 14 to 16.

Addressing one of the most pressing issues in Canada, in which aviation plays a vital role, we also provide a report from our fourth annual Canadian Wildfire Conference, which expanded this year under a new name in an effort to help unite ground and air operators in the fight against wildfires.
