Sorry Dave. Sounds like Mr Burke/Leon may be overburdened.
Confederation College said Leon had access to Cessna training planes and security at the facility was not compromised.
It said Leon was readmitted to the program in the fall after failing in 2007, and that he passed his cross-country solo flying test last week.
"His faculty speak very highly of him," she said. "Everyone likes him. He was a very good student. He was very engaged in class. He asked great questions so he was an all-around good student."
It's also commendable that U.S. authorities reacted the way they did and handled the matter as they would any other potential suicide, with considerable constraint and compassion.
"He was actually in a little better spirits than I thought he would be for a person who was suicidal," Watson said. "He seemed to want to talk and for people to know why he had done what he had done."
He also was hungry. Troopers ordered pizza for him after he said he had gone 24 hours without eating, Watson said.http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20090407/Pilot_cdn_090408/20090408?hub=Canada
