NAAA Joins Its Northern Neighbors in Mourning the Loss of Canadian Ag Aviation Association Former President Peter Hansen

NAAA is deeply saddened and is thinking about its northern Canadian neighbors that lost their former president, Peter Hansen, earlier this week. Peter was a past president of both the Canadian Aerial Applicators Association and the Alberta Agricultural Aviation Association. He was a devoted member and an advocate of aerial application in Canada. He was also a member of NAAA. Our hearts are with his daughter Carri and the rest of his family and friends.


Hansen suffered a heart attack in his sleep the night of Sunday, July 15, at the age of 68 years. He is survived by his son Jasen Hansen (Kage and Barrett); daughter Carri Hansen (Hayden and Dane); brother Doug (Shirley) Hansen and sister Laura (Bob) Bosch as well as numerous nieces, nephews and countless friends. Peter was predeceased by his parents Christian and Evelyn Hansen and brother Gary Hansen.


He was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, on July 24, 1950. He was raised in Masinasin, spending his entire life in aviation—the area he loved. Peter moved to Lethbridge and in 1985 established his business, West Wind Airspray Ltd. He recently sold his business and retired so that he could spend more time with his cherished family and friends.


A Celebration of Life for Peter will be held at West Wind Airspray Ltd., 154 Kenyon Dr. S, Lethbridge, AB, on Friday, July 20, at 11 a.m.
