In July 2009, barely two months after its founding, this enterprise moved to the Drummondville Airport. Its owner, Mr. Simon Marcil, wanted to make good use of the many benefits of the site: the availability of premises, its location, the direct access to airport services, the seaplane base, the ground runway, and the large regional population pool.
Before long, the company attracted a large and diverse clientele, including:
- aspiring pilots of all ages
- licensed pilots wishing to obtain further qualifications, competency checks or plane rental
- people just wanting to enjoy an airplane ride.
AÉROCLUB SPORTAIR, whose national reputation is well established, provides training services to private pilots and aviation professionals, qualifications for night flights and VFR OTT, aircraft leasing, and others. Mr. Marcil holds a license from Transport Canada for the treatment of aviation documents and acts as an examiner for certificates of radiotelephone operators with Industry Canada.
