In Calgary, Warren was instrumental in the start-up of “Wings” magazine, a publication he felt that true pilots, needed. Warren wrote many articles and contributed to many aspects of aviation-content. In the early years, they would fly to numerous Farmers' Fly-ins throughout the Prairie Provinces, publicizing the magazine. An avid and life-long sports fan, he loved his Toronto Blue Jays, the Calgary Stampeders and the Calgary Flames.
