Leggat Aviation on November 18, 2022, delivered five new Cessna 172S Skyhawks to Confederation College in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The Skyhawks feature state-of-the-art G1000 avionics suites with ADSB, synthetic vision and autopilots. The new airplanes replace five older Cessna 172N Skyhawks within the college’s fleet of 13 aircraft.

“Anna Pangrazzi and Leggat Aviation Ltd. were wonderful to deal with from the start. They helped us define our needs at the front end, supported us through the contract process with the manufacturer, and were instrumental during inspection and importation,” said Colin Kelly, Dean of the Confederation College’s aviation school.

Confederation College offers an Aviation – Flight Management program under a consecutive 21-month advanced diploma. Training in the program takes place at its Aviation Centre of Excellence (ACE) located at the Thunder Bay International Airport. Flight training for the students begins in the first semester.
