The W. Rupert Turnbull Lecture

In 1955, The Canadian Aeronautical Institute established the W. Rupert Turnbull Lecture to commemorate the pioneering work in aeronautical engineering carried out by Dr. Turnbull. The lecturer is selected for his/her association with some significant achievement in the scientific or engineering fields of aeronautics, space-associated technologies or their application, and for his/her qualifications to present a paper related to it. The lecture is delivered at a major meeting of the institute.
