The week started with a Montréal Aeronautic Networking event organized by AeroPro on Monday evening. This event allowed us to make initial contact with the Canadian aeronautic community and to gain interesting contacts within the Canadian aeronautic ecosystem.

Tuesday morning was a strange experience. When we setup our booth at SAE Aerotech conference, we were surrounded by other tools providers, but not exactly the type of tools we provide: drills, precision measurement tools, folding tools. Thankfully, we were quickly reassured to see many attendees interested in tooling for the development of embedded systems.
That afternoon, Dominique Toupin gave the PolarSys presentation. Attendance was good, and best of all, there were very interesting questions at the end of the session.

Another exciting moment was our executive dinner at the Toqué restaurant on Tuesday evening. Not only was it a great culinary experience, but the exchanges and discussions surrounding PolarSys made it even better.
On Wednesday, while the conference attendees were attending sessions and during the SAE reception, we created our own fun with the AR-Drone contest.
Disclosure: nobody was harmed during the AR-Drone tests.
To summarize, this week in Montréal was great! We had many fruitful exchanges with the Canadian Aerospace ecosystem. We will come back soon to follow-up with all these new contacts.

PS: I had the opportunity to visit the city on Sunday and really enjoyed the "Vieux Montréal".
Here is a photo of the oldest building in Montréal. I would say that it reflects a good implementation of rock solid Long Term Support ;)
