Lynne McMullen has been recognized for her ongoing contributions to the Canadian aviation industry.

On September 26, the Chair of the School of Aviation was presented with the 2014 Elsie MacGill Northern Lights Education Award.

The national award is presented annually to honour outstanding Canadian women in aviation and aerospace who have made a significant contribution in their field and who continue to lay the groundwork for other women to enter or excel in these industries. The award is named after Elsie Gregory MacGill, the world's first female aircraft designer.

Prior to being named Chair in 2011, Lynne was a faculty member for 10 years at the College and served as the Chief Flying Instructor (CFI), providing exemplary leadership to the flight line team.

Lynne also worked for Empire Aviation and Spectrum Airways, where she served as CFI at both organizations.

 She holds an Airline Transport Pilot Licence, a Class 1 Flight Instructor rating and is a pilot examiner.

This summer, Lynne was elected Vice-Chair of the Aviation Accreditation Board International‬.
