Bryan Webster

2007 Transport Canada Aviation Award Winner (more...)

Bryan came up with the idea of Aviation Egress Systems in the interest of aviation safety. A survivor on an incident in which the aircraft he was a passenger in crashed into the Fraser River, Bryan understands the importance of underwater egress. A 11,000+ hour pilot himself, Bryan founded and engineered the entire project. It is his passion to assist both passengers and pilots with knowledge to help them escape an underwater incident. As the main instructor of the AES program, he teaches both the classroom and water portions of the course, explaining and demonstrating why life vests, life rafts and many other theories are so important.

Bryan has recently completed a book called "Ditching Principles"; more information is available here.

Bryan is also a monthly columnist for COPA Magazine (Canadian Owners and Pilots Association).
