Aerospace Success Stories
KF Aerospace: The region’s largest private-sector employer which currently employs approximately 1000 highly skilled staff. In addition to aircraft engineering, maintenance and modifications, KF Aerospace also operates regular cargo charter services, leases aircrafts and operates a 22-year pilot training contract for the Royal Canadian Air Force. The increasing demand for highly skilled workers has led KF Aerospace to explore unique partnerships, including a joint commitment with Okanagan College and Mohawk College in Hamilton, ON to create cross-Canada opportunities for training, internships, cooperative education and applied research.
KF Centre For Excellence: The Okanagan Valley has an incredible history of achievement in Canadian aerospace. To celebrate this heritage, the KF Centre for Excellence showcases a state-of-the-art aviation museum and conference facility at the Kelowna International Airport.
