Founded in 1988, Aéropro, a 100% Canadian company with its head office in Quebec, specialized in its beginnings in the chartering of business aircraft and gradually added a range of aeronautical services. The various services offered by Aéropro are as follows:
Aircraft maintenance service
From its bases in Quebec, Sept-Îles and Blanc Sablon, Aéropro offers various aviation companies and aircraft owners a maintenance and hangar service at its three bases. With around twenty mechanics, Aéropro has been offering this service since 1988 for various types of aircraft ranging from a flight school's Cessna to business jets. Aéropro has all the tools and an appreciable inventory of spare parts.
Although the aircraft maintenance sector is the main activity of our company, we have diversified our service offering over the years.
Since 1995, Aéropro has been providing meteorological services for various organizations such as: Environment Canada, Nav Canada, Hydro-Quebec (glacimetry). Currently, Aéropro operates for Nav Canada, on a 24-hour per day basis, meteorological readings at stations in Dorval, Chibougamau and Gaspé.
In addition, Aéropro carries out aerological surveys at Sept-Îles Airport for Environment Canada.
We also do weather and snow measurements at Quebec Airport.
For Hydro-Quebec, we carry out glacimetry reports at various airports.
Since 1988, Aéropro has developed expertise in the management of regional airports.
Indeed, certain officers of the company, such as Messrs Richard Légaré and Aurèle Labbé, have been involved since 1984 in the management of airports with the company Quebec Aviation Ltée. This company was the first to develop this new niche with the management of airports such as:
- St-Georges de Beauce,
- Gatineau / Hull,
