Copy Of The Letter To Parliament
Dear Minister Alghabra:
I am writing to support legislation mandating the use of aircraft collision avoidance systems for gliding clubs in Canada.
I am doing so in support of the Leinweber family of Calgary, Alberta, whose son, Adam was killed in a mid-air collision at the Cu Nim Gliding Club, in Black Diamond, on July 26, 2019. (TSB report A19W0099).
Had better safety protocols been in place, Adam would today be in the physics program at the University of Calgary and a glider pilot himself.
Guidelines are not enough. Recommendations alone do not ensure safety.
Your efforts in helping in this matter are greatly appreciated.
