NLC's Aerospace Centre opened in 1981
A diverse fleet of aircraft and a 26,000 square foot hangar are just two reasons that aspiring and current aircraft maintenance engineers look to the Dawson Creek Campus of Northern Lights College for their training.
When the program began in 1981, the fleet consisted of three planes – a de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver, an Alouette helicopter, and a Piper PA-50 Aztec.
Now, the diverse fleet consists of several helicopters, including a Robinson R44, MD500D, AS350D, Hughes 300C, Bell 205 and 206, and six fixed-wing airplanes, including a Cessna 180, Cessna 310, Piper Aztec 250, King Air B90, and British Aerospace JetStream 31.
