(Tyendinaga, ON) — After training Indigenous pilots since 1990, the First Nations Technical Institute (FNTI) will be hosting its first annual Indigenous Youth Aviation Camp in July.

From July 21 – 28, eleven Indigenous youth from across Canada will converge at FNTI’s aviation campus to attend ground school, C-172 training flights, simulator sessions, cultural events and activities and more. Campers will also have access to an on-site Elder, receive a swag bag and camp apparel and stay in residence.

“We are thrilled to be providing this new opportunity to our youth,” said Jo-Anne Tabobandung, dean of aviation. “Indigenous-owned airlines and industry partners are always looking for meaningful ways to encourage a career in piloting to the younger generation, which is considered to be key to the sustainability of many of our communities. We are thrilled to receive so much support from them to carry it out.”

Tabobandung, student counsellors and FNTI employees will be meeting campers in Ottawa, Toronto and Kingston airports for pick up on July 21 to start off the week.
