David send us the following information - 'We have a small Pionairs chapter here in NB, with about 70-80 members scattered between Saint John, Fredericton and Moncton. Our Saint John group, headed by District Director Frank Cogger meets for lunch the last Thursday of the month (except during the summer golf season) and are planning a District Spring Lunch at 12.30 on Apr 23rd at the Quality Inn in Sussex, midway between our 3 major cities. Any visiting Pionairs would be welcome! We have chosen Sussex because it's about equidistant from our 3 cities - however most attendees are from Saint John, a reasonable number from Moncton and with very few so far from Fredericton. The lunch is usually a buffet with no advance charge. Anyone interested can contact me by email or call Frank Cogger at (506) 672-2159 by Apr 18th.

Canadian Aerospace History. cont'd. part 4. from Netletter nr 43. Supplied by Vesta. Studies during the mid-1950s indicated that the piston-engine business would decline, and it was decided that PWC would organize a team to design and develop gas turbine engines for the general aviation market. An engine specification for a propjet of about 500- shaft horsepower and designated the PT-6 was developed. The engine has since become pre-eminent in its class. Later engines have included the JT-15 fan-jet and the A-50 series used for the de Havilland Dash 7 and other aircraft. By 1978 there were 50 models of the PT-6 and the JT-15D in production, and both engine families had set the standard for general aviation engines around the world. The company currently manufactures the PW100 series of engines that power the majority of the world's regional commuter airliners, and it is also developing new generations of engines for the helicopter and small executive jet markets.
