Murray MunroBiography: Captain Murray Munro

Captain Murray Munro started his aviation career in 1984 after graduating from the Mount Royal College Aviation program.  He spent the next six years flying in northern Canada and the high Arctic, spending most of that time flying a variety of aircraft from DeHaviland DH4 Caribous and Twin Otters to a handful of twin Beechcraft.  The highlight of the northern experience was flying the non-ski equipped Caribou on a six week trip in the spring of 1986, where he flew logistical support for a US Navy research camp located on an ice floe in the Arctic Ocean 235 miles of the north coast of Greenland. 

In the spring 1990 Captain Munro joined the Air Canada family with his first airline job at Air BC.  He has been with AirBC/Jazz for just over 27 years. Captain Munro first started in Pilot Assistance in the fall of 1990 as a pilot peer and has continued over time to his position today as chairman of the Pilot Assistance for ALPA Canada.  Along with Captain Terry McTeer, Captain Munro was instrumental in the set up and operation of the Pilot Wellness Program at Jazz.  Captain Munro has recently returned from Israel where he assisted the ALPA pilots of Israel set up their first Pilot Assistance program.
