Camping travel flight with my son - Casey 2017

Contribution of Nathalie Fortin

 Aerocamping : great weekends to come 

A contribution by Jean-Pierre Bonin

First let me thank those who contacted me to add data or to say that they had used the data in my spreadsheet for under wing camping.

The aerocamping database continues to grow with now 35 airports in 8 provinces. Among these airports (aerodromes, airstrips), two do not really allow camping, but they have been added because they offer accommodation on site. So I tried to follow Janine Cross's advice in her COPA Flight article, July 2020 edition: “For us, the secret to enjoying a long camping trip is to alternate our camping nights with a stay in a local hotel or on Airbnb. "



Portrait of aviators from Quebec

Robert D'Astous,  Entrepreneur, owner,

Pilot and flight instructor, wheels, seaplane and skis

A new school in Quebec! This news, especially in times of pandemic, delights us to the highest point! A sign of a succession which is increasingly evident in aviation in Quebec, Robert D'astous takes over the banner of Delco Aviation with his new flight training unit in Mont-Laurier.

We met an enthusiastic, but above all passionate entrepreneur who has been involved in aviation since the 1990s. Trained as a private pilot by none other than the famous Louise Gagnon, he moved away from aviation for a while. to start a business under construction. But as they say, you can get the pilot out of the plane, but the plane still stays in the heart. So much so that Robert returned to piloting by fleets with Pierre-Étienne de LaMarlière, the founder of Aéro Loisirs, in 2014. This meeting became very inspiring for him… a revelation for an entrepreneur who had never thought of winning his life with planes!
