The Canadian Aerophilatelic Society
The CAS provides a forum for the exchange of information among Canadians who
are interested in any aspect of world-wide aerophilately, and for collectors from
around the world who are interested in Canadian aerophilately. This is mainly
achieved through our newsletter, The Canadian Aerophilatelist, which is published
quarterly. If you would like a sample copy of the newsletter, please click here.

It was with deep regret that I must inform the membership of the passing of our dear friend and past president, Richard K.
"Dick" Malott. Dick was a friend and mentor to many in the philatelic community and promoted Canadian airmail whenever he had the chance.
The CAS has produced this PDF file which highlights Dick's many accomplishments.
"Per Ardua Ad Astra" (Through Adversity to the Stars). May you rest in eternal peace.
