December 20, 2013 · Successful Completion of the First Annual "Stuff a Cessna" Campaign
The staff at Future Air would like to extend an enormous thank you to all those who contributed to and helped make our first annual “Stuff a Cessna” food drive an amazing success.
We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our students, our customers, airport staff, friends, family, and community and corporate members who contributed 500lbs of food to our Collingwood office and over 600lbs to our Barrie location.
That’s more than a half-ton of food and certainly enough to overload the weight and balance of any Cessna 172! More importantly it’s enough food to help many in the community who are in need of assistance to have a happy holiday season.
We would like to acknowledge our Corporate sponsors – Try That!, Red Canoe, Hammond Aviation and Airport Staff of the Collingwood Regional Airport and the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport for their assistance in this endeavour as well.
So thanks again for all your generosity and on behalf of everyone at Future Air we wish you a safe and Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!
“Dear Future Air-viator:
For those of us with a passion for aviation, the thought of earning our wings and becoming a pilot is an ambition and an adventure that we have all surely contemplated at one time or another. However, the task is at best daunting to say the least. Full of challenges and hurdles to overcome, and at times, as in my own experience, sometimes seemingly unsurpassable. Of course the end result is an achievement that is well worth the effort, I recommend it highly! And as a recent graduate of the PPL Program at Future Air in Collingwood Ontario, my best advice for anyone following this very same goal is, "Choose Your School Wisely" !!!
As an Elementary School Teacher I have had significant training and experience in accommodating student success; I can assure you that student achievement is hinged intently on instruction that is flexible, professional, accommodating and supportive. The staff and Instructors at Future Air demonstrate these qualities to a very high extent.”
