New Hangar Takes Shape
After what has seemed like a long time without much happening, the new Enterprise aircraft hangar is now going up quickly. It will be fully enclosed very shortly and that it should be in operation in the spring time. While school aircraft are not anticipated to be stored in Enterprise’s new hangar, the expectation is that there will be a significant clearling off of ramp space. We wish our friends at Enterprise good luck in completing their project asap!!

DFC Is #1 In the World for Girls Can Fly Event!!!
The Women of Aviation Worldwide annual Girls Can Fly event was held locally at the Oshawa Municipal Airport on March 7th and 8th. Durham Flight Centre and Enterprise Airlines supported the event which was spearheaded by Lesley Page of the local chapter of the Ninety-Nines. The event was a resounding success. Many girls and women turned out to listen to a great list of speakers, meet with a wide variety of people in the field of aviation, see the airport and of course custom writing service , to fly. Based on the number of girls and women flown Durham Flight Centre was named “The Most Female Pilot Friendly Training Center Worldwide. “ Congratulations to Lesley, all of the other organizers, and to the many volunteers for doing such a fantastic job. We look forward to defending our title next year!!
