NAV CANADA congratulates John Crichton, President & CEO, on being inducted as a member of Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame. The induction took place last night at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton, Ontario as part of the Hall of Fame’s 38th Annual Ceremony.
“It is truly an honour to be made a part of this prestigious institution,” said Crichton. “I share this recognition with all of the people I have worked with over the years, and especially with the employees of NAV CANADA who have contributed so much in making the Company a global success story.
“Leading Canada’s air navigation service provider for nearly 15 years has been the most rewarding time in my 40-plus-year career in aviation.”
In addition to being NAV CANADA President & CEO since 1997, Crichton’s aviation career highlights include serving as Executive Vice President of First Air, a carrier servicing Canada’s northern communities, as well as President and CEO of the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC), and the first Chairman of NAV CANADA from 1995-1997.
Nick Geer, NAV CANADA Chairman of the Board noted Crichton’s significant contribution to Canadian Aviation before his role at NAV CANADA. “During his time at First Air, John helped develop commercial air service in the North. And as the head of ATAC, he was an important advisor to the Government during the negotiations of the historic Canada-U.S. Open-Skies Agreement in 1995.”
Geer added: “John’s achievements at NAV CANADA speak for themselves, and we are pleased to be associated with this prestigious honour from Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame.”
