The Saint-Laurent borough is one of the main industrial hubs in Quebec.
Technoparc Montreal located on the territory, is considered the largest technological park in Canada, dedicated to the development of advanced technology in four main sectors: aeronautics, life sciences, information technologies and communications, as well as clean technologies. Building a competent succession for this industry is part of the mission of Développement Économique St-Laurent.
The Aviation Connection team appreciates the support of the management of the St-Laurent school in setting up an AEROLAB in one of the premises of the St-Germain pavilion. This is where the weekly AERO 1 courses are held. The 8 flight simulators accommodate up to 16 students at a time. 3-5 lessons per week are given by Aviation Connection instructors, to different groups, over a period of time between October and June.
The AERO 2-3 component: Engineering, construction of remote-controlled cargo planes for competition, is held at the Émile Legault pavilion in the school’s workshop and technology laboratory.
The AERO 3-4 component: Artificial Intelligence and drones, is held in the 2 pavilions. 15 drones at the St-Germain pavilion and 15 drones at the Émile Legault pavilion, 2 students per drone.
In 2019, St-Laurent School had the highest success rate in exams.
In 2020, 150 students enrolled in the extracurricular AERO 1 course and 180 are enrolled in Artificial Intelligence and drones. This number will be increased in 2021.
