Celebrating Victoria Day


Every year, on the last Monday before May 25, Canada celebrates Victoria Day. Originally commemorating Queen Victoria’s birthday, this holiday is only celebrated in two countries around the world—Canada and Scotland. To most Canadians, Victoria Day – lovingly referred to as the “May 2-4”, signals the start of summer.

For those with long weekend plans that involve flying, many of ALPA’s more than 5,000 Canadian pilots will be on hand to help passengers and cargo get to their destinations safely.

Skilled pilots are the backbone of North America’s aviation industry, and commercial aviation could not exist without them. If you are flying this holiday weekend, be sure to take a moment to #ThankAPilot who is Trained for Life
