Gilles Lapierre, honorary president at Les Faucheurs 2018
Gilles Lapierre was President of the Association des Pilotes de Brousse du Quebec (APBQ) from 2003 to 2014. In this role, he devoted a great deal of effort to establishing a network of affiliated local associations and to developing the recurrent training program throughout Quebec.
As a seaplane and instrumental pilot, he participated in many activities such as Fly-Ins, Quebec Tours, Provider Tours and expeditions in Nunavut. He has remained on the board as Past President since 2014. He set up the Aviateurs Quebec Insurance Program. With expertise in Foreflight, he gives many seminars on this subject to the local associations.
Gilles Lapierre was a speaker with the APBQ, now known as Aviateur Quebec. He is someone with whom it is always a pleasure to collaborate. Agreeable, he worked diligently not only for the benefit of the APBQ but also ensured that the negotiations were beneficial for its members. When Gilles begins a project, we can only join in as everything has been well thought out. However, when necessary, Gilles is open to compromise. With his ability to bring people together it is not surprising that he was at the helm of the APBQ for so long. His influence is seen throughout the board of directors of the Aviateurs Quebec.
If the airmen of Quebec were bricks, Gilles would be the mortar that holds all these bricks together.More
