Made possible by a $3.5 million gift from the founding family of Kelowna Flightcraft, Barry Lapointe and Mary Jo Schnepf and their employees, The Hangar—the first and only built-to-purpose fitness centre on campus—was opened the summer of 2013.

The upper-level main fitness centre houses 4,000 square feet of innovative cardio equipment, an array of weight machines, open space, and plenty of free weight options.
