It is with deep regret that the Airpark Board of Directors wishes to make you aware of the passing of Mr. Jim Slater on Thursday, 26 October 2023.
Jim was a former Air Force officer who established the Courtenay Flight Centre at the Courtenay Airpark after retirement, training over 2000 pilots over the 25 years that the Flight Centre operated from the Airpark and other satellite locations on the Island and the lower mainland. Jim was a dedicated member of the Airpark and a former member of the Board of Directors, and he will always be remembered for his multiple contributions to the community of aviators.
The Board of Directors extends its sincerest condolences to his wife, Margaret and the entire family. There will be no funeral services, but a memorial is anticipated at some time in the future.
Signed: The Airpark Board of Directors
