BGSU, UT to partner for aviation


BOWLING GREEN — Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo are planning an aviation partnership, details of which will be announced at 11:30 a.m. today at the Wood County Regional Airport Hangar in Bowling Green.

The announcement is to be by BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey, University of Toledo President Lloyd Jacobs, State Sen. Randy Gardner (R., Bowling Green), and others.

Earlier this month, BGSU said North Star Aviation Inc. would provide flight instruction for its aviation program, a deal designed to allow BGSU to expand its program without increasing its costs for new equipment and additional personnel.

BGSU did not say how the North Star deal would affect the UT partnership.
