Wade has been an Aviation Management professor at Georgian College since 1998. Wade has 19 years’ experience with Northwest Airlines which is now part of the Delta Airlines empire. He began working with Northwest as a customer service agent and took on increasingly responsible roles including trainer and manager. He was promoted to manager of customer service at Los Angeles International Airport and was responsible for Northwest operations, as well as 15 contract carriers.
