Since 2007 Michel Parent / PARENT AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURING Inc. organizes, through the organization of RAA415, advanced courses for those interested in assembling their own aircraft. On the proposed date, it will be the advanced assembly course or the riveting workshop. These courses are not at their first presentation and are very well elaborated. Since 2007, Michel Parent has trained over 168 enthusiasts from all over the province of Quebec. These courses ensure that the aircraft are of better quality, and subsequently safer. Having followed the training, installers / assemblers, assemble aircraft that have a better resale value. Classes are held on a Saturday in February in a local adapted from the National School of Aerotechnic located at St-Hubert Airport.  If you are interested in attending this course, I invite you to send a message in the section: Contact Us or an E-mail to: to receive the proposed course outline and it is without any further obligations. You can also consult the course outline of the proposed course (s), in attachment just below. Looking forward to giving you all the information you need to complete your construction.

Please take note, there has been a break in 2021 due to Covid-19, these pictures has been taken in the last session.

                                                                                  How to Design, trim and form a part from sheet metal spinning techniques

The latest conference Michel Parent/ PARENT AIRCRAFT MANUFACTURING Inc. did, was on sheet metal spinning. This conference has been held September 8th 2021, at the amphitheater of the École Nationale d'Aérotechnique at St-Hubert. In an exposé of one hour, Michel presents how to determine a flat pattern of the part, how to fabricate the tooling involved and all the forming steps. Michel got lot of interest from the crowd because information on this specific subject is quite rare. That evening, Michel demonstrate the complete fabrication of (2) different parts.

This exposé has been held also September 30th in English this time, for the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA 266) from Ste-Anne-De-Bellevue.

The invitation for this event was published across the country for the past 2 months. Into the crowd which attend the conference, we found, companies, aircraft builders and aircraft enthusiasts. This presentation helped a lot to demystify all the process and teach how this task can be done and have excellent results..
