Topflight lauded with award

Penticton's Topflight Elite Training has been awarded a BC Export Award in recognition of its excellence in service.

Topflight offers helicopter pilot training, frequently used by the Royal Canadian Air Force, as well as chartered flights. This year, they were given the BC Export Award for Professional Services at the 38th annual iteration of the awards.

This particular award is presented to a company "that has provided expert advice, technical support or educational programs to international customers."

The 2021 awards ceremony included four categories, which were presented during a virtual ceremony on Feb. 16.

The presentation was hosted by Glacier Media's Kirk LaPointe, editor in chief of Business in Vancouver, and included interviews with BC Trade Minister George Chow and BC Minister of Economic Recovery Ravi Kahlon.

Topflight has been a BC business for over 70 years, providing advanced and mountain flight training to military, police, corporate and civilian pilots.
