F&G Aviation was started as an aviation consulting company by Fabienne and Greg in Manitoba, back in 2013. In 2015, we were approved as a Flight Training Unit and obtained our Operating Certificate.
The school was based in Portage La Prairie, 1h West of Winnipeg, Mb. We were flying our Cessna 172 out of a 3 grass runways airport owned and managed by the Portage Flying Club.
We were flying evenings and weekends, when Greg was not flying on the Grob120A or the King AIr C90B as an instructor for the CFFTS contract between KF Aerospace Defense and the RCAF.
CJZ2 was our home until 2018. Fabienne, with her background in Quality Assurance and Maintenance coordination, found a job in Quebec and the team settled down in the Montreal area.
C-FHCF, the trusty C172, was flown from Manitoba to Quebec in September 2018.
Early 2019, the request for a change of operating base was sent to Transport Canada Quebec in order to relocate the school near Montreal, Qc.
We will bring with us a bit of the Prairies way of flying and blend it with the great aeronautical infrastructure found in Quebec to offer an exciting and enjoyable environment to practice our passion!
