Air Richelieu

Company History



For almost 90 years, Air Richelieu Aéroclub de Montréal has become the leader in the training of airline pilots in Quebec.

Created in 1928, at the Cartierville aerodrome, the Montreal aeroclub has since considerably grown. From 1971, Air Richelieu has been located at the Montreal / St Hubert Regional Airport and strives to meet the expectations of the aeronautical market and our pilot students. Air Richelieu trains more than 100 private pilots, professionals, multi engine / IFR and Airline pilots each year.

Our national and international reputation has enabled us to become a college recognized by the Ministère de l’éducation et de l’enseignement Supérieur, in addition to the ATPL pilot license issued by Transport Canada.
