Cam Wallace
PRM
Aircraft Maintenance Engineer M1/M2
 
Cam is the son of 193 Sqn Typhoon pilot Emerson Wallace. Growing up listening to stories of his father's Typhoon operations, and around his post war career as a pilot, Cam developed a strong interest in historic aviation with direct links to the dangerous operations flown by Typhoon pilots. Cam started his career in aviation as a teenager with B.C. Forest Products, and as a licensed AME M1/M2 he has experience on 20+ fixed and rotary wing types. The Wallace family truly has aviation in their blood with his mother, father, sister and brother all being pilots.
