Helicopter donated to Northern Lights College aircraft maintenance program

Six members of the family were thanked in a ceremony last week in Dawson Creek, where Luke Larsen said having the piston helicopter will give him and his fellow students extra experience heading into the workforce. 

“It’s a small helicopter, but it will have a big impact for us,” said Larsen. 

Tim Dwyer was a farmer and businessman with a passion for aviation and helicopters. He passed away at 63 years old in 2010, and his family felt the best way to honour his memory was to help others who shared his love of helicopters with a way to learn more about them.
