Maintenance

Our aircraft maintenance engineers are safety professionals

Did you know? Before an aircraft is placed into storage, our maintenance teams do a series of checks as a part of the storage package. Storage checks revolve around one goal: keeping moisture and other external forces out in order to protect the aircraft from damage. We then perform weekly and monthly checks to ensure everything is being maintained for when the aircraft is ready to return to the skies! #aviationfacts #maintenance #jazztechnicalservices ...

In honour of Black History Month, we are celebrating the early achievements and contributions made by Black Canadian aviators.

Henry Langdon (left) was born in Trinidad in 1911 and came to Canada in 1923. Growing up in Montreal, he had dreams of being a writer, but enlisted in the RCAF on November 1, 1939 to serve during World War II. At this time the RCAF prohibited the enlistment of People of Colour, but Henry was permitted to enlist (it is speculated that his previous course in aero engine mechanics helped).

After training at the Technical Training School in St. Thomas, Ontario, he served as Leading Aircraftman at multiple training schools and depots. He reached the rank of flight sergeant in October 1944 and was released on September 7, 1945. He was hired by Trans Canada Airlines (Air Canada) as an aero engine mechanic and later become an aircraft inspector with the company. Henry was active with the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW), Lodge 1751, in Montreal.

He was a pioneer with Air Canada, the RCAF and his union. Working in predominantly white environments, he was highly respected not only for his abilities, but in his efforts towards improving race relations. (Source: Royal Canadian Air Force) #blackhistorymonth

In honour of Black History Month, we are celebrating the early achievements and contributions made by Black Canadian aviators.

Born in Nova Scotia and raised in New Brunswick, Walter “Wally” Peters enrolled in the Royal Canadian Air Force at 24-years-old. Peters was accepted into the jet pilot training program and completed the course with top honours, becoming the first Canadian-born Black jet fighter pilot.

Based in Saskatchewan, his skills were put to good use as a flying instructor. He flew the C-100 “Canuck” fighter/interceptor in a number of air shows. In the early 1970s he helped organize the famous Snowbirds air demonstration squadron. He flew the CT 114 Tutor jet as a Snowbird for two years. He was the first human rights officer in the RCAF and an advisor to the UN Security Council in New York. He retired from the RCAF with the rank of Major in 1984 and worked until 1988 with Transport Canada.

Many testify to his importance as a role model for both visible minorities and all members of the RCAF. (Source: New Brunswick Black History Society) #blackhistorymonth
