We pride ourselves on living our values:
Service – Integrity – Excellence – Together
“The Top Aces commitment to the success of Ex DESERT RAM was clearly demonstrated through the obvious effort and time dedicated to supporting the exercise. I have no doubt the training audience benefited greatly from the aircrew’s professionalism and dedication to task.”
“Top Aces is providing a variety of services to CUTLASS FURY 16, from electronic warfare to the simulation of fighter jets and missiles. These contracted services allow for a realistic training environment that enhances the skills of all participants.”
“Your flexibility in accommodating our training needs displays what a top notch organization Top Aces is. Your training is far superior to the simulated training we normally get.”
“It is my distinct pleasure to thank the men and women of Top Aces for their outstanding support to our exercises held in Wainwright, Alberta. […] In the words of my air staff, Major André Lessard, who was responsible to coordinate your participation: the exposure received by the Forward Air Controllers and the Tactical Air Control Party hugely increased their confidence and ability to employ air assets. In and of itself, this achievement can make the difference in our ability to influence the battle space and effectively eliminate a threat to our soldiers in theatre, which translates into saving lives.”
“I am writing to thank you very much for the support Top Aces gave to Exercise MEDMAN 4-09 from 26 – 30 September 2009. The Commander of the 2nd Battalion the Royal Welsh Battlegroup has told me that his troops very much appreciated the extra realism that live air brought to their training. […] The professionalism and flexibility of you and your staff made a valuable contribution to what was a very successful exercise.”
