We are a collection of the finest friends and acquaintances that gather for a common purpose.... to exchange words of friendship and camaraderie.
There is nothing we can say that will ease the pain for the families and friends of the ones that have been called away.
So we offer this page as a reminder that we will not forget the friendships we have made.

Leo was a glider pilot and instructor for the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. He was also licenced to VFR fly the L19 Bird Dog which was a tow plane for the gliders. He was also a licenced building engineer and spent several years at NBCC where he was an instructor. May you always have fair weather and blue skies|
|Captain Bob McDermott C-SJBM||FSNB members wish to acknowledge the loss of one of our newest pilots, who passed recently. Bob joined us in 2013 at the age of 76 and was very interested in developing a new hobby in Flight Simulation. He was an avid woodworker and due to his health he was looking for a new hobby. He was a very soft spoken man and showed great interest in learning about this great new adventure in his life. He will be greatly missed.|
|Captain Peter Arsenault C-SJPA||FSNB members wish to acknowledge the loss of a dedicated member and convey our condolences to his family. Peter was an avid aviation enthusiast. Although with limited mobility he participated in attending our meetings on-line. He also enjoyed virtual formation flying and flying on the Vatsim network. Having served at one time as a Flying Officer with the RCAF it seems appropriate to quote the old RCAF Motto "through adversity to the stars" Rest in Peace Pete.|
|Captain Jim Legere C-HZJL||FSNB members wish to acknowledge the loss of FSNS Halifax Chief Pilot, Jim Legere, who passed away very suddenly. Jim was an active volunteer in the community, known for his friendly nature, and will be deeply missed by so many people. He did a lot of great work at the Shearwater Aviation Museum and when an interest in supporting a flight simulation club in Halifax presented itself, he took it and ran with it. His smiling face and cheerful outlook will be greatly missed.|
