I never forgot this 'boss' who was quiet, gentle with a piercing look. I remember the Christmas parties where he would fly staff into Thompson and give his annual 'pep talk' to staff. Working for CALM Air made for wonderful memories & I was glad to find the recently published book on Arnold & the company's history. - Posted by: Armande Martine (Former CALM Air flight attendant (1980-81)) on: Jan 23, 2015

I was shocked and saddened by the loss of Mr. Morberg. I will always remember him as a great boss during my years at Calm Air and really appreciated how he would always pop in to say Hi and "Keep em Flyin" during his busy schedule when he was in Winnipeg. - Posted by: Cirk Harrold (Friend) on: Sep 11, 2005
