The University of Waterloo and United Nation's International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) are partnering together to offer an introductory course on aviation: "Fundamentals of the Air Transport System".
Designed by UWaterloo professor Suzanne Kearns, vice-chair of ICAO’s Next Generation of Aviation Professionals (NGAP), the course will help train the next generation of aviators as possible global pilot shortage looms.
Cameron Fuchs, Spencer Leckie, Siobhan O’Hanlon, and Chelsea Anne Edwards were the first batch of young pilots trained under the airline's intensive cadet program. And now they are all hired and flying as First Officers with Sunwing Airlines, straight out of the University of Waterloo! Congratulations!
