Montreal  ChapterThe Montreal Chapter is a crossroads where aviation veterans and aviation enthusiasts can meet.

Many of our members are involved in researching and writing history or had a front row seat to it. Others have no aviation background but want to know more about aviation, its history and its impact on Québec and Canada. Everyone is welcome – visitors and guests included!

Montreal has been one of the main centers of the Canadian aviation industry for years, and our chapter is ideally located to participate in and record this history. Every month we feature a keynote speaker and because we follow a mid-day format (1100-1300 hours), we now include a small lunch: sandwiches, veggies, cookies, coffee and bottled water.

Come and be a part of our community!
