SPOTLIGHT, WITH J.D. BOOTH

With a career in flight, Dennis Ryan is helping to continue the tradition

Owner of Huron Flight Centre is helping to raise funds through special event that includes showcasing B-25 'Mitchell' bomber

Dennis Ryan, who has made a career of training future pilots, is also giving back to the community through fundraising efforts like the one that is being played out at Sarnia Chris Hadfield Airport on behalf of Pathways Health Centre for Children.

The Friday, July 13 event, which is in its second year, is dubbed “Wings over Sarnia” and organizers have earmarked funds raised to help with Pathways’ repair of its therapeutic pool, which had to close last December after a leak was detected.

See details on the event HERE.

The event is based around a dance in Hangar 2 of the airport, thanks to the generosity of Badger Daylighting.

But the excitement really begins as early as July 9, when members of the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum arrive in Sarnia with a rare B-25 “Mitchell” bomber.

From then until July 15, tours and rides on the bomber will be offered for a fee, although as Ryan tells us, there is no cost to enter the airfield for a look.

In our discussion, we spoke about how Dennis first got into the aviation business and how he sees the future playing out.

Hint: now is an excellent time to work toward becoming a commercial pilot.
