We would like to congratulate our Board Member Johnny May on completing 40,000 hours of flying! Based in Kuujjuaq, Johnny May is known as being the first Inuk pilot in Eastern Canada and has a long history in Northern aviation. Not only has he been inducted into the Quebec Air and Space Hall of Fame in 2010, he also had a children’s book written about his Kuujjuaq Christmas Candy Drop and a movie released about his life and career titled The Wings of Johnny May, which was released in 2014 in English and Inuktitut.
