Harv’s Air: St. Andrews Opens at St. Andrews Airport
ST. ANDREWS AIRPORT, Man. â€“ The new Harv’s Air: St. Andrews is commencing operations at St. Andrews Airport on July 4th, delivering complete flight training services using a large fleet of training aircraft and modern flight simulators.
Harv’s Air: St. Andrews, located in the facilities that formerly housed the Winnipeg Flying Club, is a subsidiary of Steinbach-based Harvâ€™s Air Service.
â€œWe are very excited to be opening a new location at the St. Andrews airport,â€ said Harvâ€™s Air and Harv’s Air: St. Andrews founder Harv Penner. â€œIâ€™m confident that we have the skills and positive attitude needed to make your flight training the most fulfilling and enjoyable experience possible.â€
Harv’s Air: St. Andrews operates a fleet of Cessna 152s, Cessna 172s, a Bellanca Citabria (taildragger), and a Piper Warrior. In addition, two certified Flight Training Devices (flight simulators) are available to students along with access to an internet-based Online Ground School. The Harv’s Air: St. Andrews employs several Designated Flight Test Examiners to ensure the highest standard of flight training and to provide students with ready access to flight tests.
The Harv’s Air: St. Andrews’s location at St. Andrews Airport was designed for flight training with three runways, a control tower operating 16 hours daily and a large practice area in close proximity. The Canadian Aviation Centre campus includes 2 large hangers, a 10,000-square foot classroom, administration and restaurant facility as well as an 18-student dormitory.
The highlight of the summer for the Harv’s Air: St. Andrews staff will be the arrival of members of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, who will pursue their Private Pilotâ€™s License under the Flying Scholarship Program. Commencing in September, the Harv’s Air: St. Andrews will join with Red River College to offer a community college diploma in Aviation Business Management.
Harvâ€™s Air was established in 1972, and has grown to become one of the leading flight training schools in Canada, offering Canadian- and internationally-certified pilot training and air taxi services.
