Jean-Claude Grenier will be the honorary president in 2016

Mastering a subject is a science, teaching is an art.

Jean-Claude Grenier will not admit it, as he is far too modest, but he has it all. His knowledge of piloting is based on vast experience that enriches his teaching. The risks of bush piloting, especially in winter conditions, are numerous and J-C Grenier has lived and analyzed them. Through his experience of 18,500 flight hours he can warn his fellow pilots. Through an endless source of anecdotes, J-C Grenier is able to be understood through examples without having to resort to big theories or long equations. In his 42 years as a licensed instructor he has made an indelible impression.

Not content with having passed his knowledge on to hundreds of students, JC Grenier continues in retirement, to disseminate his knowledge for the safety of airmen of all backgrounds in the APBQ.

In celebration of these values, the Faucheurs de Marguerites is pleased this year to have Mr. JC Grenier as honorary president as he approaches his 50th anniversary of his pilot license this July.

Year after year, since 1995, Les Faucheurs de Marguerites du Québec organize a sport aviation Fly-In at the Sherbrooke airport to gather together as many pilots, builders and aircraft lovers as possible. Are also invited to this big celebration all aviation lovers who want to meet with these friendly aviators and have a close look at their marvellous flying machines. It is not a show but a very remarquable aviation enthusiast rendez-vous.
