FNTI receives temporary hangar from KF Aerospace


The First Nations Technical Institute has received a temporary hangar from KF Aerospace to house planes used for its aerospace program. The announcement was shared in a Skies Mag article that details the community and industry response to the loss of FNTI’s hangar and equipment in a structural fire early last year. The temporary hangar will enable the school’s program to increase daytime training flights and reduce the amount of time lost to decontaminating the aircraft. “The loss of our hangar, AMO, dispatch, and planes in February [2022] was devastating for FNTI and our aviation students,” said FNTI President Suzanne Brant. “We are fortunate to have resilient staff who pivoted to provide students with training options, ensuring minimal program interruption. The aviation industry stepped up and offered much-needed contributions toward maintaining uninterrupted pilot training, and providing temporary solutions until our hangar could be rebuilt.”
