Graduate Testimony


Patrick Villeneuve-ThibertPatrick-Thibert-photo.jpg

Aircraft Maintenance Technician, Pratt & Whitney Canada


"Before going at ÉNA, I already had a passion for automobile mechanics and an interest in aviation. The school has prepared me very well for the job market. As part of my job, I am required to do dimensional and geometric inspection of various parts of aircraft engines. It's very important to be conscientious, rigourous and meticulous, because you don't want to risk playing with people's lives."



University and other formations




Studies at ÉNA can be an important asset if you also want to do a training in a flight school. 


Frédéric Leroux 

Airplane pilot – Jazz Aviation L.P.

Graduate in Aerospace Engineering in 2016


« I studied at ÉNA in parallel with my flying lessons. The School brought me strong technical knowledge while developping a great network of contacts and giving me access to the Aero-Club ÉNA which allowed me to accumulate time of flight. My training in Aerospace Engineering gave me the opportunity to know very well how an aircraft is designed and planned. Now I have a better understanding of the aircraft that I will fly following my internal training at Jazz.»
