    Congratulations!!! You deserve the honour considering all the effort that you have put into the CAHS, including the very successful conference in Edmonton this year. You are a breath of fresh air that the Society needed. I think that you have taught us members something about communications and that will help revive CAHS.

    Best Regards,

    Howard Malone

  • Congratulations Danielle. You are certainly right that women are underrepresented in aviation. At one time, the
    CAAA had eight (15% of members) women artists on its roster, but they have now dwindled to only three, and we
    really don’t know why.

    Thanks to all of you for your kind words and good wishes. I have really enjoyed my time so far with the CAHS: there’s a great exec team, board members, and some of the most dedicated “general” members I’ve ever encountered. Your passion fuels me!

    Congratulations Danielle! Well done. I’m very jealous that you’ve had a ride with Buffalo Joe! Thanks for the great job representing women in aviation. If you’re ever in the Windsor, Ontario area, please look up the Canadian Historical Aircraft Association at the Windsor International Airport. We’d love to see you, and we have a couple of vintage aircraft you might like to experience firsthand as well. Cheers and well done!
