April Tang – Recipient of the Ed Payne Award

The Ed Payne Award is presented to young engineers, under the age of 35 at time of application, who have made significant contributions to the SAWE or the mass properties engineering profession.
One of our own chapter members, April Tang, received this award at the 2017 SAWE International Conference in Montreal. Since April could not attend the conference due to work commitments at Bombardier, she had to wait until our celebration BBQ at Whidy Kiskunas’ home to receive this award from our Chapter President, Robert Hargrave.
April - Ed Payne Award
April Tang is an Engineering Professional in Mass Properties Engineering & Product Development Commercial Aircraft at Bombardier, Toronto.
April graduated from Ryerson University in Toronto with a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering in 2006. She is well known for her determination, effectiveness, and attention to detail.

Her various accomplishments at Bombardier:
Continuous improvement in methods of predicting, targeting and tracking weight and C.G of various projects
– Active participation in initial design and trade studies such that established target weights can be achieved
– Capable of weighing aircraft, producing reports for Transport Canada, writing applicable manuals and devising loading methods for operator usage

April has spent the last three years mentoring new engineers into the world of Mass Properties while also providing training to customers when required. She has been our invaluable Chapter Treasurer since 2010. As treasurer, she has been diligent in collecting fees, issuing receipts, keeping everyone informed, participating in our monthly chapter executive meetings and helping out whenever possible. April has also been instrumental in helping us organize and keeping track of expenses for our Canadian Regional Conferences. Most recently, April has been very active in keeping track of budget matters for our 2016 Regional Conference in Montreal and in providing a detailed draft budget for the 2017 International Conference Committee. Her efforts have been greatly appreciated by all involved! We can’t thank her enough for all that she has done at Bombardier and the SAWE Canada Chapter. The Ed Payne award is one way that our chapter has managed to recognize April for her dedication to the Mass Properties discipline.

Congratulations April!
