Seneca identifies Peterborough as preferred location for flight school

April 16, 2012

Seneca College has selected Peterborough Airport as the preferred location for its Bachelor of Aviation Technology program. The college has been searching for a new home for the program due to the upcoming closure of the Buttonville Airport in Markham. The agreement is still not completely final, but is in the final stages, says the City of Peterborough's planning director. Seneca president David Agnew cites the recent $28 million in improvements to the Peterborough Airport and community support as reasons the institution is pursuing this opportunity further. Seneca will look to partner with Fleming College for facilities and supports for its Peterborough-based students. Seneca News | Peterborough Examiner
