Aviron Technical Institute was founded in 1937 by aviation pioneer Capitaine W. J. Guy, and European industrial educator Simon F. Flegg, when they combined their knowledge and expertise to create the trade school under the name “Aviron”
It was a very timely moment in history, as the entire country was preparing for war. Within months, Aviron participated in the war efforts by educating and training people into the industry of aviation. This came in the form of many disciplines, such as sheet metal transformation, assembly, design, and welding, to name a few. It was at this time that our graduates were hired by companies with high demand and looking for well-trained hands-on workers. These students paved the way for Aviron, evolving to support present-day requirements.
While Aviron began as a leading provider of aviation mechanics, today, the students can craft their education to graduate with confidence and pursue careers within the fields of electricity, auto mechanics, industrial drafting, and welding.
Aviron Technical Institute of Montreal maintains its landmark status and is considered a reputable trade school. Offering a variety of loan and bursary programs, licensed by the MELS and enlisting experts in the industry, Aviron holds more than 600 students, providing them with the education they need to pursue their careers.
At Aviron Technical Institute, we believe it is important to offer our students the means and the tools necessary in realizing their dreams.
The student is our priority, we are committed to providing them the guidance and preparation needed to help them pursue their career, and support them every step of the way until the end of their studies.
