BCIT receives CRJ100 Aircraft from Bombardier

March 2, 2017

The British Columbia Institute of Technology has received a CRJ100 aircraft for use by the school’s Aerospace programs, courtesy of Bombardier. The event reportedly marks Bombardier’s first donation of a commercial aircraft to an educational institution and symbolizes the company’s commitment to the training of a skilled workforce in Canada. The donated aircraft was originally created by Bombardier for airline operations in 1994, and spent many years in service across Europe before it was retired and transferred to the BCIT Aerospace Technology Campus. “Industry partners like Bombardier are at the heart of the BCIT applied learning model,” said Paul McCullough, BCIT Vice President Advancement. “With their generous donation of the CRJ100 aircraft, Bombardier is equipping the next generation of aerospace professionals with an indispensable tool that will give BCIT students yet another competitive advantage upon graduation.” BCIT
