Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame wishes to announce the successful nomination to the Hall of Harvey Friesen, Dr. Gary Gray, Keith Hopkinson, and Ken Lett, along with No. 1 Air Division, recipient of The Belt of Orion Award for Excellence.

The Induction Ceremony will be held on September 14, 2023, at Sunwest Aviation in Calgary.

This ceremony is a special one as it will celebrate the Hall's 50th Anniversary. Over its five decades since its creation in 1973 CAHF has honoured the accomplishments of 248 individuals and 26 organizations that represent the best of Canadian aviation and aerospace.

CAHF is excited to announce Colonel Chris Hadfield as our keynote speaker for the event! Colonel Hadfield, a highly decorate astronaut, engineer, fighter pilot, musician, and author, was inducted as a Member into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame in 2005.
