“This aircraft has a better, more versatile type of engine for the students to learn on,” said Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Chair Jim Smith. “This machine will relieve some of the scheduling time pressures of too many students trying to do the same project on one aircraft.”

The Borek family, who are local to Dawson Creek, were on-hand for the announcement and are pleased this donation will provide students with a hands on learning opportunity.

“We're very thankful for donations like these,” added Dean of Trades and Apprenticeships Mark Heartt. “It's an honour for industry to be coming back to us and giving us these types of upgrades. It really shows they see the potential our students have to offer.”
