“I thought this was a really cool opportunity and a good experience.”
“I liked that we were able to practice in the airborne program the things we learned about in ground school, and understand what we learned to a better degree.“
“I liked the learning aspect, learning what things to do. They weren’t as hard as I thought they would be.”
When asked what their favourite material was, one 17yr old student responded ‘All of it!”
“This program was more than I’d hoped or expected. I didn’t think I would get as much time in the air, but we flew every day. I liked planning and flying my three-hour cross country trip back home, that was awesome,” an 18 year old participant from Canupawakpa First Nation.
