Air Cadet Program Concluding
Final flight tests for the Air Cadet Power Pilot Scholarship training program are nearing completion. Graduation ceremonies for the cadets will be held at the hangar on Friday, August 21st at 1 pm. We are very proud of this group of twenty-three young Canadian pilots. They have worked hard to progress through ground school and full flight training in just over five weeks.
As the cadet program winds down additional DFC aircraft are becoming available during daytime hours. We hope that renters and other students have not been unduly inconvenienced during the cadet training. As a thank you we are offering free breakfasts in the form of $10 McDonald's gift cards for any renter / student that rents a DFC aircraft between 7 am and 11 am (start time) Monday to Saturday. This gift card giveaway - the DFC breakfast club promo - commences on Thursday, August 20th for applicable aircraft rentals and it is a limited time offer.
We hope to see you flying soon.
Minacs Flight Training Scholarship Winner Announced
Congratulations to Raquel M. who was selected to be the recipient of the $2,000 female pilot flight training scholarship generously provided by Minacs, and also to Mary B. who was first runner-up and received a $200 certificate for ground school courtesy of Durham Flight Centre. Raquel and Mary were two of five finalists in the contest that was announced at the Women Of Aviation Worldwide Girls Take Flight event held at Enterprise Airlines hangar in March. All five finalists recently had the opportunity to train in our Redbird and to do a dual flight in a C-172. The enthusiasm of the finalists for flying was awesome to see and we wish all of them the very best.
