EVA Airlines returns to Grand Forks

The UND Aerospace Foundation, the not-for-profit business arm of the Odegard School, welcomes the return of EVA Airlines of Taipei, Taiwan, to Grand Forks for pilot training through a five-year partnership. The first group of pilots from Evergreen, now named EVA Airlines, graduated from the UND Aerospace program in July 1990. Now, 18 years later the first class of 15 students arrived on June 3 to begin their ab initio pilot training.

Al Palmer, director of Flight Operations said, "It's great to be working with EVA Airlines again. I am extremely proud of our previous EVA graduates. They were the first ab initio trained pilots for EVA. UND Aerospace looks forward to a long relationship with EVA Airlines."
