The fifth Brazil-Canada MRO Technology Seminar, and first Canada-Latin America MRO Technology Seminar, was held at the LABACE show this week.

The producers of "Sully," the movie based on the ditching of Flight 1549 in the Hudson River in 2009, are apparently so confident of its authenticity they've invited a theater full of pilots to a preview screening, two days before it opens to general audiences. Warner Bros. has given free tickets to hundreds of pilots in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, for the invitation-only preview.
