AERONAUTICAL TRAINING PROGRAM
The Aeronautical Training Program (ATP) offered to students of J. H. Leclerc is a fascinating introduction to science and technology and the world of aerospace
The program is based on learning the main aerodynamic principles developed in engineering.
The ATP program offers secondary 1 to 5 students a series of 5 courses over a period of 3 years.
The curriculum exploits the effectiveness of didactic computing and computer simulations: graphic design, then Aero-design, as well as virtual piloting. Students learn through an experience-based approach: they train with simulators and participate in the design of unmanned aircraft.
Students fly a virtual aircraft to study scientific concepts such as energy and forces acting on an aircraft and provide an introduction to variables such as aircraft performance and handling.
Simulation stations: 5-8 simulators (1 station for 2 students). The number varies according to demand.
SUPPORT FROM INDUSTRY AND THE CITY OF GRANBY AS WELL AS THE GOVERNMENT OF QUEBEC
The students of J. H. Leclerc are proud to be supported by important parts who play a major role in the development of the region and of new cutting-edge technologies on a global scale.
The aviation training program at J. H. Leclerc high school is made possible thanks to the participation of 3 major partners:
1. City of Granby: Granby Industriel
2. Safran (Patronage), France
3. Aviation Connection (The company)
Safran, headquartered in France, is an international high-tech group operating in the fields of propulsion and aeronautical equipment, space and defense. Established on all continents, the Group employs more than 58,000 people.
The City of Granby’s mission, through its Industrial Park, is to support and assist existing manufacturing companies in their growth, their needs, their challenges and their projects. High-performance companies, located in the Industrial Park, stand out in the aeronautics and advanced technology sector in Granby: ATLAS Aéronautik, NSE-Automatech and A7 Integration, Avior, Fives among others.
For its businesses, for the city of Granby, ensuring succession is important, which is why this program plays an important role in the region’s development.
