In 1937, aviation pioneer Captain W. J. Guy and European educator and industrialist Simon F. Flegg combined their talents and expertise to establish a trade school named the Aviron Technical Institute of Montreal.
The timing could not have been better, as the entire country was preparing for war. Within months, Aviron was contributing to the war effort by training workers for the aviation industry. There were courses in sheet metal transformation, assembly, design, welding and many other subjects. Aviron graduates were in high demand by companies looking for well-trained, skilled workers, and they paved the way for Aviron as it evolved to keep pace with industries’ requirements.
While Aviron began as a leading provider of aviation mechanics, students today can craft their educational pathway so that when they graduate, they can confidently pursue careers in electricity, auto mechanics, industrial drafting, and welding.
Aviron Technical Institute of Montreal maintains its landmark status and is considered a reputable trade school. It offers a variety of loan and bursary programs, is licensed by Quebec’s Ministère de l’Éducation, du Loisir et du Sport, and employs industry experts as instructors. It can accommodate more than 600 students, providing them with the education they need to pursue their careers.
