Nechako-Kitamaat Development Fund Society is pleased to have provided $35,000 to the Vanderhoof Flying Club towards the purchase of the fuel tanks at the Vanderhoof airport. An additional $75,000 for the project was provided by Northern Development Initiative Trust.
NKDF Director Danielle De Kay attended an opening ceremony this weekend and met with Vanderhoof Flying Club President Floyd Wuthrich.
The fuel tanks have supplies for both piston and jet/turbine aircraft, and can be accessed 24/7 by self serve credit card. It is hoped that small profits can be made by the club that will be invested in the Flying School that is busy training the next generation of commercial and private flight crew for Canada and the world.
