Cathy Lee Altice and Reto Marti Island Soaring Society
Dan and Cathy Altice have generously allowed members of the Island Soaring Society to land in one of their hay fields for well over ten years asking nothing in return. Without their ongoing support, we may have lost the joy of flying from Mt Prevost, one of the busiest sites on the South Island.
Instructor of the Year Eric Brent
John Wieland lives in Mission, BC. He has contributed to the local flying community by building a trail connecting forest service road with the launch on Mt. Benedict (Benny). The trail enables pilots to directly hike to the launch in a temperate forest instead of taking a long way around on dry forest service road. John scouted the trail, organized volunteers, and likely built half of the trail himself.
