In addition to achieving high academic marks, the student chosen for this award will have prepared an essay to demonstrate how their career plan will positively impact the aviation industry.

Based upon these criteria, the awards committee identified Min as an excellent and well-deserving recipient of this award.
“We are delighted that Fanshawe student, Min Gu Kang, has been selected as the recipient of first-ever WinAir Award,” says WinAir Marketing Specialist, Christopher Lawn. “Supporting and fostering the growth of future talent within the aviation maintenance industry is a top priority at WinAir. We wish Min all the best in his final year of studies at the Norton Wolf School of Aviation Technology, along with continued success throughout his career.”
Together with Fanshawe College, WinAir established The WinAir Impact Award in early 2020 after the company approached the college about setting up an annual scholarship for students that are excelling in one of its aviation programs. Since the Norton Wolf School of Aviation Technology is considered throughout the industry as a top aviation school in Canada for providing Transport Canada approved aviation programming, WinAir determined that it was an ideal fit for this award. WinAir has affirmed that it will be offering this award for the next five years and will aim to renew this commitment to the college again in 2025.
“We are so grateful to WinAir for their generous support of the WinAir Impact Award,” says Fanshawe College Executive Director of Advancement and Alumni, Gillian Sneddon. “Awards such as this play a significant role in student success. Valued partners, like WinAir, make a real difference by giving students the tools they need to unlock their full potential.”
