Future pilots have a new opportunity to build aviation careers thanks to a partnership between Super T Aviation Academy and Medicine Hat College.

Students will take ground school and flight training through Super T, while having the opportunity to earn an Aviation Management Certificate through MHC.

Dennis Beaudoin, dean of trades and technology says students will enroll in two semesters of academic courses for the program.

Super T Aviation owner Terry Super says the program was a natural step to connect with MHC to offer enhanced academic background to students.

While the program formally begins this September, interest in the program is already said to be high.
