Rex Terpening Wins Canadian Aerophilatelist Editor's Award!

Posted: Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Rex Terpening, author of Bent Props and Blow Pots (Harbour $24.95), has been honoured with The 10th Annual Canadian Aerophilatelist Editor’s Award.

The Canadian Aerophilatelist Editor’s Award is awarded to an individual who has made a substantial contribution to the aviation community. Award ceremonies will take place at this year’s CAS Annual General Meeting presented by The Canadian Aerophilatelist.

Rex Terpening is one of the very last of a breed of air engineers who flew with the bush pilots and shared all of the routine hazards they faced. Now in his 90s, Rex is a perceptive observer who writes not only with an insight gained from a lifetime in aviation—much of it at the grassroots level—but also with humour and sensitivity.
