Confederation College investigates airplane mishap

March 11, 2009

Confederation College officials are investigating an incident last week in which one of their student aviation planes skidded off a runway during a training exercise. This is the first incident on the safety record for the 30-year-old aviation program. While school officials say there was minimal damage to the plane, a Transport Canada report indicates the plane's nose wheel broke off, and there was damage to the propeller and engine.
