Emergency Training in the North
Over the course of a couple weeks in May The Loomex Team ventured into Northern Ontario to conduct emergency training at a number of Northern Airports. One of the Airports we visited was The Greenstone Regional Airport where a dynamic team of Airport and municipal staff and first responders tested their plans in the event of an airport emergency.

Media Day for our Emergency Flight Simulator
Loomex welcomed local media channels to get a first hand experience with our new Jetstar Simulator. The 13 passenger fuselage is available to be used during our emergency exercises, adding a level of realism for those participating and need to respond in the event a plane does crash. Below is the news release from the media launch event that took place in November.
Our New Exercise Jet Simulator is Ready for Takeoff!
After over two years of preparations and planning we are thrilled to launch our new JetStar Simulator. The fuselage simulator is the first of its kind if Canada and is set up to resemble a private jet that can be staged virtually anywhere a forklift or crane can place it. It is incredibly useful in providing the trainees with a sense of realism during their exercises. For further information, please click HERE
Fun at the Parade
On December 3rd we were able to be part of the annual Peterborough Santa Claus Parade. A lot of great ideas and hard work went into creating our float. The theme for the parade was Christmas at the Movies and we chose the movie Sully for our float. It was a great opportunity to feature our fuselage. Thanks to everyone who helped with the float and joined us on the night of the parade!
