Hello and welcome to June! Well, as usual after a few years of instructing... job offers! Our wonderful CFI Andrew Campbell has moved on to Fugro Survey. We know that Andrew will be a valued addition to this company and we will certainly miss him here at OAS. Not to fear! He won't be lonely. He is joining OAS alumni Kate Duncan and Mike Stevens (now Chief Pilot at Fugro). We are very proud of Andrew and look forward to hearing his stories about flying bigger and faster airplanes! Good luck! Also: Keith Kelly, long time OAS instructor and all around good guy, is our first pick for filling Andrew's shoes. Keith instructed for us full-time in the late 90's and has been operating our Smith Falls location for the last three years as CFI. We welcome the opportunity to make Keith feel at home here at OAS and we know he will fit in well and do a fantastic job! As well, a big welcome to the new students who have signed up for our ground school which began earlier this month! And last month...
