An unfortunate reality for any airport is that incidents involving aircraft will happen at some point. The Peterborough Airport experienced just that this past weekend as the landing gear did not deploy on an aircraft coming in to land.

Students Honour a Special Loomex Employee
On Saturday June 17th Seneca College School of Aviation, Peterborough Campus held their Graduation ceremony in Peterborough. Many students and faculty were honoured at this event but one in particular has us quite proud. Cathy Doyle is part the The Loomex Group’s Property Management team and acts as the Lead Hand in this division. She is primarily located at the Seneca College building at the Peterborough Airport where she has taken the time to get to know each of the students quite well.
The Student Graduation Committee chose 12 individuals to honour with a Special Achievement Award that recognized those who have made an impact on the graduating class and their experiences over the past few years. Cathy is known by the students as everyone’s “mom on Campus”, has taken the time to learn each of their names and birthdays, and quite often could be found challenging them to friendly games of ping pong. The class valedictorian couldn’t get through his introduction for Cathy’s award before the room erupted with applause and the only, and quite lengthy, standing ovation of the evening.
Following the awards ceremony Cathy was ushered around by all of the students making sure each of their families had the chance to meet the person who made their time at Seneca so great.
The Loomex Group is proud to have Cathy as part of our team and recognizes that her willingness to go above and beyond her duties is part of what makes her so valuable to us and all those who have the pleasure of working with her!
Congratulations Cathy, you deserve it!
