Air cadet Brian Kim of 907 “White Rock” Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron recently had the opportunity to re-attach the left-hand outboard flap to the wing of an Airbus A319 at the Aveos Maintenance Facility at the Vancouver Airport.

Kim, 16, participated in a week-long work experience program with Aveos Canada, whose partnership with the air cadets provides students the opportunity to fulfill their Graduation Transitions work experience requirement by working in their aerospace technical maintenance facility.

Kim has been an air cadet for three years and plans to continue pursuing his love of aviation post-graduation.

He hopes to attend the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ont., and study aircraft maintenance. He currently attends Grade 11 at Elgin Park Secondary School.
