A single-engine aircraft popular with bush pilots around the world was donated to Washington's Big Bend Community College aviation maintenance technology program. The Helio Courier hit the runway at the Grant County International Airport, said college spokesperson Doug Sly. It was donated by the Boeing Corporation, and under the company's rules for aircraft donation, is permanently grounded, Sly said. The aircraft will be used in the aviation maintenance curriculum, Sly said.
