An Exhibition for the Centennial of the Royal Canadian Air Force

June 19th, 2024

Since April 2024, the QAM presents an exhibition dedicated to the Centennial of the Royal Canadian Air Force in a showcase located in a passing corridor of the École nationale d'aérotechnique. This initiative was taken by our member Frédéric Morin, also a professor in the ÉNA Avionics Department. He, whom we thank, declares: "With this modest exhibition, let us salute this significant anniversary for the aeronautical community and pay tribute to the personnel who enabled and continue the mission of the ARC". The exhibition is expected to continue for a few more months.

The AFSG-1 Ground Power Unit is Functional!

May 8th, 2024

Today was the last meeting of the session of the "Avionics" student group from the École natione d'aérotechnique. And it ended in style with the completion of a conclusive test of the AFSG-1 GPU. It followed a series of repairs that took place throughout the last two sessions. Needless to say, the students were very proud to have reached the end of their sentence! This project, aimed at restoring this GPU dating from 1952 to working order, represents a unique opportunity for ÉNA students to increase their experience as well as their manual dexterity. It is also a good tool intended to promote academic perseverance. Next session, it is planned to continue work on AFSG-1 and to complete the compliance of various elements that had been modified over time. At the same time, activities should continue on the MMG-1A, another GPU project proposed by the QAM to ÉNA students.

New Workplace Health and Safety Manager Takes Office

May 1st, 2024

The Board of Directors of the Québec Aerospace Museum is pleased to announce today the entry into office of Mr. Stéphane Drolet as Workplace Health and Safety Manager. After graduating from the École nationale d'aérotechnique in 1994, Drolet spent most of his 28-year career as a Preflight Quality Agent, inspector (18 years) and as a mechanic (10 years), at Bombardier Aéronautique in Dorval before officially retire on May 1, 2024. Thanks to his long experience in aircraft workshops and hangars, he was made aware of the many potential dangers existing in these places. There is no doubt that he will be able to put this experience to good use in order to continue the actions already undertaken aimed at making QAM activities safe. Indeed, since its creation, the organization has implemented preventive measures in health and safety at work including, in particular, training offered to its members and in compliance with the requirements of the CNESST as well as relevant laws and regulations.

Presentation of the CF-100 Trailer Project by ÉTS Students

April 18th, 2024

This Wednesday, April 17, 2024, the final presentation of the end-of-studies project (PFE) of the five ÉTS students took place, which consisted of designing a new trailer for storing and moving the fuselage of our Avro CF-100 Canuck #100760. What was proposed meets all the requirements that had been established by the MAQ in the specifications. In addition, the students also wrote a manufacturing manual, a user manual, a collection of calculations carried out, a daily inspection sheet as well as an illustrated parts catalog (IPC). Throughout the process, they worked closely with our project coordinator and demonstrated rigor and great professionalism in all their efforts. We congratulate them, therefore, for their excellent work and we wish them all the success they deserve in their future engineering careers. We would also like to thank the ÉTS professors who supervised and supported this STEM project.

Mission Completed!

29 février 2024

Mission completed for the students of the ÉNA “Avionics” group working on QAM projects! Indeed, they completed within the allotted time the reassembly of three instrument and radio panels forming part of the dashboard to be installed on board a Cessna 310 fuselage at the children's museum “Le P'tit Monde des Grands” in Granby. The students had at their disposal a whole disparate series of old instruments as well as old avionics to carry out this project. In three sessions of approximately two hours each, they placed them according to what was available in the locations provided in the different panels. Even though no logic in the placement of instruments and radios was required, they still tried as much as possible to respect the usual layout of an airplane dashboard. In the photo, we can note the students surrounding Gabriel Dufresne, initiator of the “Le P'tit Monde des Grands” museum, at the time of the delivery of the three elements of the Cessna 310 dashboard yesterday.

Student Activities for the “Le P'tit Monde des Grands”

February 15th, 2024

Following a request addressed to ÉNA by the children's museum “Le P'tit Monde des Grands” to reconstruct a Cessna 310 dashboard, the “Avionics” student group working on QAM projects was put to use yesterday. The students sorted through the old instruments and radios that were given to them and began to install the most interesting of them on the three elements constituting the plane's dashboard. With the museum due to open its doors very soon in Granby, all available resources will be devoted to this collaborative project during the next two student activity sessions at ÉNA so that it will be completed on time according to the wishes of the leaders of the P'tit Monde des Grands.

Resumption of QAM Student Activities at ÉNA

February 7th, 2024

Student activities at the Québec Aerospace Museum have resumed Today at the École nationale d'aérotechnique. These focused on the MMG-1A Mobile Electrical Power Plant which served, in particular, on U.S. Navy aircraft carriers. While two students prepared a test box of their design for the relays, others dismantled structural elements to facilitate access to the AC-DC conversion circuits. These activities are expected to continue until the end of the session in May. Please note that this project to restore the MMG-1A to operational condition is possible thanks to the financial support of Bell Textron Canada.

A New End-of-studies Project For a Group of ÉTS Students

January 20th, 2024

The QAM proposed a new end-of-study project at ÉTS and a group of five students from the mechanical engineering program showed interest in carrying it out. The challenge is to design a trailer suitable for storing and transporting the fuselage of the Museum's Avro CF-100 #100760. In fact, the current trailer has reached the end of its life and can no longer be moved safely. Yesterday, for the first stage of the project, the students came to take measurements on the fuselage of the plane at the Saint-Hubert military base where it is stored in the care of the 438th Tactical Helicopter Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force. This is the third end-of-studies project carried out by ÉTS students for the benefit of the QAM, thus demonstrating the excellent collaboration between the two institutions.

The Second Aerospace Heritage Day Was a Success

October 7th, 2023

No less than 836 visitors were counted last Sunday, October 1st, 2023, during the second edition of the Saint-Hubert/Longueuil Aerospace Heritage Day jointly organized by the Québec Aerospace Museum and the City of Longueuil at the Saint-Hubert airport. During its visit to the facilities of the École nationale d'aérotechnique, which was host and partner of the event, the public was able to discover several facets of the world of aerospace both at kiosks located in the agora of the school, and outside, where a static display of aircraft and airport snow removal vehicles had been organized. The very good weather was certainly a contributing factor to the success of this event. The organizers would like to warmly thank all the partners and sponsors who collaborated in the organization of this Aerospace Heritage Day as well as Chrono Aviation, Helicraft and YHU-Aéroport Montréal Saint-Hubert for exhibiting aircraft or vehicles.
