School of aviation at canadore college

This multi award-winning campus is one of the first of its kind in Canada combining post-secondary programs with hands-on on- site training specific to the aviation industry.

Located at Jack Garland Airport, the new $12M facility serves the College’s rapidly expanding aviation program. The 83,000 s.f. facility is an airside/groundside facility, meaning that the building straddles the security fence separating the public areas from the restricted areas of the airport. Initial planning work concentrated on maximizing access to existing airport infrastructure including taxiways and runways. It was also critical that the building project a powerful public image and evoke simple, yet powerful ideas about aviation-related architectural form and materials. This multi award-winning campus is one of the first of its kind in Canada combining post-secondary programs with hands-on on- site training specific to the aviation industry.
