Who's On BoardFredrick Petrie is a lifelong aviator and a bit of a star-gazer. From an Air Force family, he began as an Argus navigator hunting submarines over the North Atlantic. As navigators were being replaced by black boxes, he finished a commerce degree for a career in management that has included airlines, travel, airports and consulting, where he specialized in economic development for small airports. He also held senior policy posts at both Transport Canada and Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure.
