McRobie donated his personal aircraft to the University this spring, expanding the aviation program’s fleet along with its capacity for training aspiring pilots. The exchange was made under one condition presented by McRobie; the aircraft would spend the entirety of its operating life training students to fly. McRobie made his grand entrance when he was flown in from the Fairmont Airport in the aircraft to be dedicated, then the plane was taxied into the hangar to launch the event program.
