Aviation student named top amateur pilot


Liam Cohen wins Webster Memorial Trophy

Liam Cohen, Honours Bachelor of Aviation Technology, has been named the winner of the 2017 Webster Memorial Trophy competition, which is considered one of the country’s most prestigious events for amateur aviators. This marks the sixth time a Seneca Aviation student has won the trophy.

Liam was in Saskatoon last week with eight other amateur pilots. They took part in a week-long series of flight tests, flying exercises, written exams and simulator exercises.

By claiming the top prize in the Webster Memorial Trophy Competition, Liam will have his name added to the trophy which is on display permanently at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.
