Third Aviation School coming to Red Deer Regional Airport

Published on

From the Red Deer Regional Airport

The Red Deer Regional Airport is proud to welcome their newest aviation business to Central Alberta, the Canadian Aviation College!

The Canadian Aviation College is a designated training institution who currently operate from their main college in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, and are happily transitioning a secondary location to the Red Deer Regional Airport. This transition into Central Alberta with both single and twin-engine aircraft will allow students and instructors from the college to take advantage of the diverse landscapes of the region, while utilizing the consistent winter weather of Alberta.

As a student-oriented aviation training facility, the team at Canadian Aviation College focus on empowering their students to graduate with a higher level of experience and be better suited for employment in Canada. International students who graduate from their Commercial Pilot Program are also eligible for post-graduation work permits in select countries. The economic impact of students within Central Alberta is immense.

Students with the Canadian Aviation College will live within Central Alberta as they complete their studies, and this number of students will continue to grow year after year. These students are able to contribute to the local economy by eating meals, visiting sites, and contributing to daily activities and transportation. This addition to our local economy is vital in times such as these.

“Students are a huge economic driver for Central Alberta, and we are so happy to see upwards of 100 students here with the Canadian Aviation College as we look to the future”, says Graham Ingham, CEO of the Red Deer Regional Airport. “The Airport has continued to remain busy throughout 2020, with essential service business and VIP traffic, and this addition of the airport’s third aviation school is a fantastic benefit to that economic impact.”

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

Understanding My Own Grief was Life changing for Me

A personal story:

“…I connected with the PCN program through my doctor’s recommendation. I have always been a thirsty learner of better ways to navigate through life. The Coaches of the program Journeying through Grief showed up every day with their humanness and wisdom.

I appreciated their loyalty to improve our wellness through learning to manage our grief. They were willing to be vulnerable in a way I have never seen in any kind of therapy or counselling. Their own histories with grief nurtured my trust and receptivity to the information.

They shared their personal experiences in dealing with life’s challenges. For me, I would describe my experience as emotional debridement. I am thankful for the contribution and support of everyone in the class. Several of us had mastered supporting others but needed to learn how to do this for ourselves.

Connection with empathy as in this group is nothing less than GOLDEN in creation of a better life of wellness in arguably a better world. Reflectively I now feel that my own grief was due initially to the loss of my dreams too quickly as important people did not believe in me. Not learning how to handle this made subsequent losses more difficult to manage.

I learned that dealing with grief is a journey and to never give up. If things get tough, have faith that things will get better soon…”
