Quebec Aviation Notes:
Quebec Aviation was formed on the 1st November 1978 through a merger of Air Brazeau, Tapis Rouge Aero Services and the original Quebec Aviation company, all these companies being subsidiaries of the La Verendrye Management transport conglomerate.
The new merged entity had Bases are at Montreal and Quebec City, from which scheduled passenger and cargo services were operated, alongside ad hoc charter and contract flights. The company also operated a flying training school.
The Flying School side of the operation meant that the company operated pure training aircraft such as the Cessna 150 up to Beechcraft 99 as shown in the picture and Piper Piper Navajo, plus a variety of General aviation class aircraft from Piper and Cessna.
Whilst I have no information on the subsequent history of the Flying School operation, the Airline side of the company continued to operate Beech 99 and Piper Navajo Aircraft until the Airline became a founder member of Inter-Canadien (Inter-Canadian) in September 1987.
