British Columbia Aviation Council

Over 60 years ago, aviation was growing in maturity and many cities and towns were coming to realize that that aviation was an evolving transportation system that progressive communities must recognize. In 1938, at a time of spirited enthusiasm in aviation, a group of civic leaders met in the city of Nelson and formed the British Columbia Aviation Council (BCAC).

The BC Aviation Council was the first of its kind in Canada. Membership was afforded to all city and rural municipalities and recognized Boards of Trade throughout the province. It was an organization formed primarily to promote the safe and orderly development of aviation and aviation services in British Columbia.

The Belt of Orion Award for Excellence was presented to the British Columbia Aviation Council in 1999.
