Hundreds of people had the pleasure of meeting Colonel Chris Hadfield at Friday’s National Air Force Museum Gala.
Among them, First Nations Technical Institute’s Chief Flight Instructor Jo-Anne Tabobandung who was able to speak with Commander Hadfield about Aboriginal Youth in Aviation, Science and Technology.
FNTI is supporting the 2017 Hadfield Summit, by reaching out to Canada’s First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities to ensure that Youth who would like to attend the Summit in Gatineau at the end of June get the chance.
The Summit brings together Canada’s most accomplished and inspirational aerospace leaders for a leadership and youth development event.
Tabobandung also spoke to Commander Hadfield about Camp Mohawk which will be celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.
Camp Mohawk opened in Tyendinaga in 1917 to train pilots for the First World War.
FNTI’s aviation school is on the grounds of the former Camp Mohawk site.
